The Drum has opened nominations for its Social Buzz Top 50, which will celebrate the 50 most influential individuals in social media marketing.

To be considered for inclusion, nominees must have have shown leadership and innovation in their sector, and have made a strong contribution to the industry.

The Drum is calling on the industry to nominate individuals for the inaugural platform, which will be an annual celebration of those setting the pace in social.

Between now and 20 October, we want you to tell us who should be put forward, and why you think they merit inclusion in the list. Nominated individuals will be put before a judging panel comprised of Social Buzz Awards judges to decide on the final 50.

The latest marketing news and insights straight to your inbox.

Get the best of The Drum by choosing from a series of great email briefings, whether that’s daily news, weekly recaps or deep dives into media or creativity.

The Top 50 will be revealed on 10 December in a special supplement published by The Drum, and in a list published online at

The number one individual will also be named Social Buzz Individual of the Year at this year’s Social Buzz Awards, taking place on 27 November in London.

Your testimonials will inform the judging panel's selections so please be as comprehensive as possible. Multiple nominations for the same individual are not necessary, as we consider the strength of nominations rather than volume.

You can nominate your chosen individual below (or by opening the survey in a separate tab) by 5pm on Monday 20 October. Keep up to date with The Social Buzz Top 50 using the hashtag #TheDrumSocialBuzz50.
