Yes. The Efma-Accenture Innovation in Insurance Awards are open to all insurance organizations regardless of their Efma membership.
The majority of the award categories are reserved for insurance and bancassurance organizations. However, the insurtech category has been introduced in 2018 to cater for technology companies whose products are aimed specifically at the insurance industry. Insurtechs that would like to enter one of the other categories may do so jointly with one of their insurance clients.
Participation is free of charge (no hidden cost)
Particular care should be taken when completing the presentation part of the form. You can add a photograph or video in support of your application, to show actual value created.

The judges evaluate the innovations by rating them on a scale of 1 to 10 based on the following three criteria:
After the submission deadline, the Efma Committee will review all submissions and select the nominees in each category.
For all but the Global Innovator category, Efma members and non-members vote to select the top three entries using Efma’s dedicated web page. This makes up 50% of the final scores (40% from Efma members and 10% from non-members). The remaining 50% comes from the votes of an Awards Jury, which comprises senior insurance executives from across the world.
For the Product & Service Innovation category, online voters and jury members shortlist six innovations out of the nine nominated ones. The six shortlisted innovators present their innovations to the audience at the awards ceremony. The audience then cast their votes and the winner will be announced on-stage.
For the Global Innovator category, the Awards Jury select the winner from the fifteen nominees identified by the Awards Committee.
In 2020 the awards ceremony was held online on 17th June. The 2021 award ceremony will be held on June 3rd
