Only two weeks remain for nominations to be submitted to the International Accounting Bulletin (IAB) Awards 2013, with several categories already hotly contended in advance of the 30 January nominations deadline.

The Awards, which are run by The Accountant’s sister publication the IAB, nominations are coming through at an impressive rate, with this year’s new Social Networking Champion of the Year award attracting particular attention alongside established categories.

The Awards, now in their second year and supported by exclusive sponsor Aon, recognise excellence and innovation among networks, associations, firms and individuals across the breadth of the accounting industry.

Winners will be announced on 14th March 2013, in a ceremony conducted at Chartered Accountant’s Hall in London

Judging will be carried out by an independent panel including Sue Almond of ACCA, Jane Howard of Wragge & Co and ICAS president and former IASB chairman Sir David Tweedie.

Last year’s awards were well-received by the industry, with award winners considering their titles to have been an advantage to their business in 2012.

Morison International, named Association of the Year 2012, chief executive Liza Robbinssaid: "it’s great for our member firms to be able to say to clients ‘we are a member of the association of the year’ – it really does mean something."

Kreston International, winner of Rising Star Network of the Year, chief executive Jon Lisby commented: "A major highlight of the year was winning the IAB award – the only recognised global award for international accounting groups. It’s been of tremendous value to Kreston providing a testimonial which has benefited both international tenders for new client assignments and recruitment programme for new member firms"
