The annual FinTech Australia Finnies Awards will return to Sydney for the presentation night in June after six years in Melbourne.

The awards, now in their eighth year, were first held in Sydney in 2016 then 2017 before heading south.

The presentation night will be held on June 6 at Doltone House in Jones Wharf, Pyrmont.

There are more than 20 awards up for grabs this year, including Best Workplace Diversity, Positive Impact, Emerging Fintech Leader Of The Year, Female Fintech Leader Of The Year and Outstanding Fintech Leader Of The Year. Last year there were more than 300 entries.

FinTech Australia general manager Rehan D’Almeida said bringing the awards back to Sydney had been a running request from members in NSW

“We’ll be holding the Finnies Gala Dinner at a time when Sydney is at its best — during the Vivid Festival. Jones Wharf is on the water, overlooking the Sydney Harbour Bridge, creating a truly stunning backdrop for what will be a memorable night,” he said.

“We urge fintechs to start working on their entries now, and really put their best foot forward this year as competition will be fierce.”

 “We expect participation to hit a new high this year, as we continue to celebrate the success and growth of the industry — a theme across all of our events this year including Banking Reverse Pitch, Fintech for Net Zero, CDR Summit and Intersekt.”

Entries for the Finnies Awards close on March 15. For details and to enter, see thefinnies.org.au.
