How to Enter

These Awards are free to enter and are open to all third-party technology vendors/providers of market and reference data services for the financial services industry, regardless of their size, location or ownership. Organizations may enter as many categories as they wish, as long as they genuinely believe they meet the criteria listed beneath the categories. The judging panel will consider all entries to each category. 

About these awards

Entry to the 2024 Inside Market Data & Inside Reference Data Awards (IMD & IRD Awards) is free, online-only and consists of two sections: Section A and Section B (see below). Questions in Section A are mandatory and will provide the basis for the winners’ category write-ups (highlight sheets), which will be published on WatersTechnology. All information contained in Section B (the 500-word entry) is strictly confidential.

About the IMD & IRD Awards category write-ups

Based on conversations with a number of WatersTechnology’s readers and past category winners, we have decided to change the format of the winners’ write-ups. The new format will include the information contained in section A. Therefore, it is in your interest to provide pertinent, accurate and detailed information in response to all the questions in section A.
