Digital Leaders Awards open for public vote

The Digital Leaders 100 is open for a public vote to decide the winners of this year’s awards, including Digital Leader and FinTech Innovation of the Year

After a public nomination and a rigorous judging process, the Digital Leaders 100 (DL100) list, has opened for a public vote.

The shortlist, decided by the Digital Leaders (DL) Advisory Board, aims to celebrate unsung projects and people within digital transformation. The DL100 list covers projects, organisations and individuals involved in digital transformation.

Winners of the Digital Leader 100 Awards are decided by a public vote and the results celebrated at the annual DL Awards Dinner, held this year on 15 June 2016. There are ten categories, including Digital Leader of the Year and FinTech Innovation of the Year. 

Digital Leaders Founder, Robin Knowles said that that the list reflects “the incredible amount of digital transformation now taking place as well as strong sector themes around cyber resilience, cross-sector collaboration and fintech innovation”. 

“It also reveals a thriving private sector and this year we have list members from all 12 Digital Leaders UK regions,” he said. “I am particularly pleased to see that 6 out of the ten finalists for Digital Leader of the Year are women this year.” 

Previous list winners include former government digital service boss Mike Bracken and Martha Lane Fox. 

The Digital Leaders 100 List was launched in 2013 to recognize great achievements across public, private and non-profit sectors in the UK.

 Voting for this years’ list closes on 27 May 2016.
