About the Export Awards


The GTR-BExA Young Exporter Award and Young Export Financier Award are open to candidates aged 35 and under (as at 31st December 2019), and employed in the export or export finance department of a manufacturing, trading or financial services company registered in the UK. 

The successful candidates, selected from a shortlist of interviewed candidates, will have typically played a key role in winning or closing financing of a significant order or achieving a series of smaller orders, or in establishing a new business process which has led to increased export competitiveness.  The judging panel is made up of representatives from the BExA Council and GTR magazine. 

Winners receive a cheque for £1,000 and a 1-year subscription to GTR (valued at £550). Shortlisted applicants are interviewed by a GTR-BExA judging panel in September, and winners will be presented with their awards at the BExA Annual Lunch, to be held at the Mansion House, City of London, in October.



BExA's Lifetime Achievement Award seeks to honour and recognise individuals who have made significant contributions to UK exports and the export community over the course of their career. The award, which is also open to non-members was first introduced in 2019 to mark the centenary of UK Export Finance (UKEF), and is presented at the BExA Annual Lunch in October.
