Key figures from Google, Twitter and the Guardian to help curate Digital Hall of Fame
A panel of experts including key figures from Google, Twitter and the Guardian have been signed up to help shape the UK's first Digital Hall of Fame.
Since the beginning of this month The Drum and BIMA have been inviting the public to nominate inspirational and influential Britons who deserve to be elected into the Hall of Fame.
The public vote closes at the end of April. Thereafter an experienced panel (see below) including Twitter's Bruce Daisley, Guardian News & Media's Tanya Cordrey and Google's James Cashmore will cast their eyes over all the suggestions and curate a shortlist.
A final public vote will then decide the first 20 digital heroes who will be inducted into the Hall of Fame at ad:tech in London in September.
Along with the panel, The Drum can now also announce that digital recruitment agency Propel has signed up as a Hall of Fame partner. Propel joins Adobe, Microsoft and ad:tech in supporting the initiative.
You can nominate now on the Digital Hall of Fame website or by tweeting your candidate's name to @BIMA with the hashtag #digitalHOF.
