The Debt Review Awards Process

 The Debt Review Awards recognizes excellence in the debt review industry by all role players and individuals. The Debt Review Awards are organised by debt review industry magazine Debtfree. For more info on debt review and your daily dose of debt review and financial information and news visit

The Process

The Debt Review Awards process in 2021 will be once again conducted by means of an online peer review system. Industry participants logged in and captured information in regard to various industry role players. This enabled the entire industry to voice their observations in regard to which firms had performed well and identified the top firms in each category. Organisers Debtfree, in consultation with various industry bodies, companies and associations, have worked on a core set of crucial values which PDA’s, Credit Providers and Debt Counsellors need to excel at, to provide their clients with the best possible debt review service.


Regular updates are published in issues of Debtfree DIGI Magazine and here on this site eg. the top 50 DC candidates prior to the event. On the night of the Debt Review Awards Gala (or online show as in 2021), the Top 5 DC firms, in each Debt Counsellor category, will be revealed and the award winners in the various categories are announced.


The principal organisers of the Debt Review Awards process are key staff members from  Debtfree Magazine (the Debt Review Industry Magazine). We also receive a lot of help from other willing parties who we wish to thank for their ongoing support and help. No member of the organisers (Debtfree Magazine) participates in the online review process as a participant or candidate.
