House Note finalists were judged on: the innovation of the design production and security features; uniqueness; aesthetic appeal, and clear explanation of how the house note elements would improve the security of a banknote if adopted.

Winning in this category is a significant industry and technical achievement. For the first time, voting was restricted only to central bank delegates. IACA supplier members were not permitted to vote. Thus the decision was entirely in the hands of central banks. “This is the highest endorsement we could wish for”, comments Clemens Berger the award win.
