About the Export Awards


The BExA-GTR Young Exporter Award, now in its 18th year, is open to candidates aged 35 and under (as at 31st December 2023) and either:

  • employed in the export or export finance department of a UK-registered trading or manufacturing company of any size; or
  • holds a position as an ‘export enabler’ within a bank, alternative financier, credit insurer, law firm or UK government department; or
  • is engaged in international trade and export-oriented science, technology, innovation and support services to a UK exporting business.  

The successful candidate, 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.  

Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed by a judging panel, comprised of representatives from the BExA Council and GTR magazine, in September and the winner will be presented with their award at the BExA Annual Lunch, being held at the Merchant Taylors' Hall, City of London, on 10th October.  The winner will also receive a cheque for £1,000 and a 1-year subscription to GTR.

Nominations will open soon!
