Nominate influential individuals working in the Asia Pacific digital industry

The drum launches its Digerati list in Asia Pacific

The Drum is bringing its annual ‘who’s who’ of the digital advertising industry to Asia Pacific, The Drum Digerati Asia Pacific, and we need your help in highlighting the exceptional few.

With the Asia Pacific region showing some of the most exciting digital trends and many markets showing incredible innovation, it’s time to shine a light on the individuals behind it. Not least because the fragmented and diverse nature of the region makes innovation and world class digital talent no small achievement.

Now in its fifth year in the UK, where the idea was first born, it has become a calendar event for many in the industry and a highly coveted title, showing who is pioneering in this exciting part of the industry.

What makes someone worthy?

We are looking from individuals from across the digital marketing spectrum. Nominees can come from agencies (big, small, content, traditional, indie etc), they can come from a martech point of view, or in-house at a brand and they can also come from the media owner side of the coin.

The key thing is that they really stand out and have proven this through the quality of the work, inspirational leadership or innovative ideas and business practices. The inaugural Digerati Asia Pacific members will be announced in March 2018.

How to enter

You can nominate someone for consideration using the short online form by 5pm on 31st of Jan 2018.

To be considered for inclusion, you must provide a short rationale explaining why your nominee deserves the recognition with examples of their achievements from the past 12 months. Do take care to write the rationale and give very specific examples and information, or as much as you can.

Your suggestions will then be put to The Drum’s editorial team, who will consider a range of factors such as quality of work and contribution to their chosen field to determine the makeup of the final list.
