JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 17, 2021 – Financial technology leader FIS® (NYSE: FIS) is now accepting submissions for the 2021 Impact Awards.

Entries are independently judged by leading industry analyst research group Celent. For each winning entry, FIS will make a $10,000 donation to a charitable organization chosen by the winner through the FIS Foundation.

“The global pandemic has accelerated the shift toward digitization as global organizations look for new ways to serve their clients and enable their remote workers,” said Gary Norcross, FIS chairman, president and CEO. “Our annual Impact Awards program offers FIS clients an opportunity to showcase their innovations while giving back to the community at a time when many are experiencing hardship. We look forward to seeing this year’s submissions and recognizing our clients’ successes.”
