Uxolo's Projects of the Year Awards are the industry gold-standard for excellence in development and impact finance. Uxolo recognises outstanding projects across all regions and sectors, regardless of size.
Submissions are now OPEN for the Uxolo’s Projects of the Year Awards 2023! - if you know of a project that deserves to be put in the spotlight as an innovative, market-influencing transaction, then it’s time to submit that project information!
The submission form includes the information that Uxolo requires to be able to assess a transaction's eligibility, outstanding features, and to allow the market to vote on its merits.
Projects may already be present on our online data platform. Please click here to see if you project already exists. If so, please check our entry for accuracy, and suggest any changes or additional roles on the project, as well as let us know why that project is exceptional, innovative, or influential.
Eligible transactions will be any development or impact project that was approved or funded during the latest calendar year. While we will focus on financings with a development impact we might consider pure philanthropic or grant projects with an interesting or influential structure or goals. The categories we award in are not fixed, and will reflect levels of market activity, but you are welcome to suggest categories based on past awards winners.
The deadline for submissions is 31 December 2023. If your project is likely to close towards the end of 2023, Uxolo strongly recommends that you submit details of the transaction under embargo so that they can be reviewed for eligibility. Any embargo would be lifted at signing. Alternatively you may request an extension to gather relevant information, but at the same time as requesting please provide the project sector and region so that any relevant category can be left open. An extension may not be automatically granted.
There may be instances when you are unable to provide all of the required information, say because you or your client are unable or unwilling to disclose certain details. In general, the more detail we receive, the easier it is to decide on the merits of the transaction, and ideally we should see any evidence you have for an assertion you make in your rationale for submission. At a minimum we would need to know the overall size of the transaction, the debt size and the names of all firms that worked on the project , but projects with minimal details will be at a disadvantage.Download Submission Form
