The annual Ethical Finance Innovation Challenge and Awards (EFICA) returns in 2017 for the 5th time to inspire and assist initiatives that promote ethical and Islamic finance. The event will highlight the most innovative financial initiatives and give them the support needed to grow and prosper.
During the past 4 years, EFICA has become a leading finance award selecting winners from more than 450 applications received from around the world and providing the opportunity for 21 finalists to present their initiatives at the EFICA gala dinner and get wider visibility.
This year there will be two main awards to be presented:
Ethical Finance Initiative Award: this award promotes emerging and existing talent providing ethical financial solutions or initiatives that can be implemented within the financial sector. A single prize of $100,000 will be awarded to the winner and $20,000 for the two finalists.
Lifetime Achievement Award: This award celebrates an outstanding individual or institution that has shaped the world of financial services using a positive approach and ethical principles. The award is for $25,000.
Candidates for the awards may be institutions, firms, research centers, Shariah scholars or an individual/group of individuals.
To be considered for the award, you need to register your interest and download the application form. Eventually, you will need to email your completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org by 18 July 2017.
