The Drum Digerati has returned to celebrate the most inspiring and impressive individuals in the global digital industry in 2019.

In each of the last seven years, the hotly anticipated Digerati has shined a spotlight on 100 leading talents excelling in digital marketing and media.


The Drum Digerati has returned to highlight the most inspiring individuals in digital.

Now we are calling on our readers in the UK, US and APAC to help us identify the leaders and innovators who deserve to be included on this year's list based on their achievements over the last 12 months.

You can nominate yourself, or a colleague or peer you admire, by completing this short survey by Wednesday 24 July.

Like last year, the 2019 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 industry are represented.

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.

Cameron Clarke, deputy editor of The Drum, said: "The Digerati has become the annual who's who of the digital business. Past honourees include some of the biggest names in the industry but also hitherto under-the-radar talents producing great work day in, day out but not always getting the recognition they deserved.

"Our aim is to open the Digerati nomination process as far and wide as possible to identify the world's best digital talent and ensure we're not overlooking anyone who deserves to be on this list. We urge you to make sure your outstanding colleagues and clients don't miss out by nominating them now."

The final 100 inductees will be unveiled by The Drum later this year, ahead of the Dadi Awards in November.

You can see last year's Digerati finalists here.

Complete this short form here and nominate yourself or someone else that you think deserves to make the Digerati 2019.
