Every year, the prestigious ICMA Élan Awards cast a spotlight on the best of the best in the global card industry, honoring world-class achievements in both card design and technological innovation. Widely acknowledged as the most renowned showcase for card excellence, the coveted Élan Awards distinguish ICMA manufacturer, supplier and personalization/fulfillment members before peers and customers as industry leaders. The Élan Awards celebrate ICMA members’ commitment to the design quality and technical advances that drive the future of the global card industry, which is ultimately the true winner in this acclaimed program.

New this year, metal cards being entered into the Secure Financial Card category will be judged as a sub-category for their own award winners.
