Banknotes nominated must have been issued to the public for the first time during the year of the award, be in general circulation and have artistic merit and/or innovative security features, the IBNS website says.

The Belarusian banknote was nominated by an IBNS Member Fritz-Juergen Simons.

Once nominations close on 31 January next year, the winner will be decided by a vote of the IBNS, who will consider the artistic merit, design, use of colour, contrast, balance, and security features of each nomination. The winner will be announced at the the first IBNS Board meeting of the year.
