Now in its 6th year, the hClub100 awards seek to identify and celebrate the 100 most influential and innovative people working across Britain’s creative industries in the past 12 months.

In a new process for 2014, public nominations are scrutinized and discussed by 3-4 expert industry judges per category, culminating in a shortlist of which the top 9 names are award winners, with the 10th space per category being selected by public vote over a two week period in September.

The resulting list of winners – and shortlist – serves as a both a valuable resource for members of the creative community looking to explore innovations and make connections in neighbouring fields, and as an enduring record of one of the most dynamic and exciting communities in the world: the UK creative industries.

Hosted by Margherita Taylor.

To ensure nominations are both as broad and as informed as possible, in 2014 the hClub100 is supported by 10 of the country’s leading trade publications from across the Creative Industries, as well as the British Council, Creative England, UAL and Presteigne.
