The Drum’s Digerati is back to recognise the most impressive and inspiring individuals in the UK digital industry – and we need your help.

For the last six years the Digerati has been shining a spotlight on the 100 leading figures excelling in digital media and marketing roles.

Now we want you to tell us who you think deserves to be on this year’s list by completing this short form by 5pm on 15 August.

Like last year, the 2018 Digerati will be split into four categories – agencies, brands, media & platforms and adtech & martech – to ensure that individuals from all corners of the digital media and marketing ecosystem are represented.

And as is tradition, the individual of the year at The Drum’s Dadi Awards – which celebrates digital excellence – will be selected from the Digerati class of 2018.

Cameron Clarke, deputy editor of The Drum, said: “The Digerati is always one of the highlights of the year at The Drum. The sheer number of nominations we receive never fails to remind us just how deep the digital talent pool runs here in the UK.

“We are expecting the 2018 Digerati to be every bit as competitive as in years gone by and urge our readers to ensure their brilliant colleagues or clients don’t miss out by making a strong case for them now.”

The Digerati will be curated by The Drum’s editorial team after carefully considering each nominee’s testimonials – so make sure their key achievements from the last 12 months are included in your submission.

The final 100 will be revealed by The Drum later this year and the individual of the year will be announced at the Dadi Awards ceremony in London on 10 October.

Last year that accolade went to Mark Read – foreshadowing an eventful 2018 for the Wunderman global chief executive in which he was elevated to WPP joint-chief operating officer.

You can see the 2017 Digerati in full here.

Complete this short form here and nominate yourself or someone else that you think deserves to make the Digerati 2018.
