Making an entry
These categories are totally free to enter. Nominations can be submitted via this Typeform.
The deadline for Young Digital Leader of the Year and Digital Leader of the Year is coming soon - so get nominating! Nominations will close on February 19th at midnight.
Do all the necessary prep work before putting yourself or someone else forward. The submission will ask for standard information about the person, a headshot if available, up to 800 words on why they should win, plus a snappy, 200-word summary.
The rationale for winning could include a biography of the nominee, their vision for growth, their aspirations, the things they’ve achieved, the challenges they’ve overcome - or all of the above. We want to know what makes you or them such an inspiration.
How the winner will be decided
After being shortlisted, the nominees will be sent to our expert panel of judges involved in Digital City Festival.
This shortlist will also open up to a public vote - gathering the opinions of the wider industry on who should be named Digital Leader and Young Digital Leader of the Year.
The winners will be decided by a combination of the public vote and the judges’ contributions, and announced on the night at the Digital City Awards.
The winners will be announced on April 15th at the awards, which are hosted on the Digital City Network.
