We Celebrate Digital Heroes in the Public Sector

The Digital Leaders Awards were launched in 2013 and have become the major awards for those individuals and teams leading Digital Transformation in the UK. It is a list of 100 that recognises the leaders and organisations who are pioneering change within the public sector, Enterprise, SMEs and Charity Sectors, generated by their peers.

The awards are part of Digital Leaders Week 2018.

The awards are judged by the Digital Leaders Advisory Board, an arms length independent group of leading digital figures from the private sector, Whitehall, Local Government and non-profit sectors and is
chaired by Jacqueline de Rojas.

Nominations for the 2018 Awards will open soon. Judges shortlist these nominations down to 100 finalists. Then the public has the chance to vote for their winners. This with the final judges scores determines the final order of the DL100 List and the Winners of each category. The Digital Leaders community will gather in central London to celebrate the winners of the 2018 DL100 Awards on 21 June 2018.


The Awards would not be possible without the support of our sponsors

This year there are opportunities to sponsor one of the 12 categories, as well as to host your clients and peers during the Awards Gala event. The DL100 event gives our sponsors access to an extensive network of private and public sector organisations, businesses and individuals who are connected by an interest in digital transformation in the UK. The Digital Leaders 100 Awards provide a high-profile platform for companies to achieve significant brand exposure before, during and after the awards event.

What is the DL100 list?

The Digital Leaders 100 list was launched in 2013 as a new way to recognise individuals and organisations who demonstrate a pioneering and sustainable approach to digital transformation across the public, private and non-profit sectors.

How are the winners determined?

The DL100 List 2017 is put into a final order based on the number of votes each member of the list receives in the Public Vote and the order they are placed in by the Judges. The public vote and judges scores each make up half of the final score and are combined to determine a final order. The top places in the list and the category winners will be announced on the 22nd of June 2017 at an Awards dinner.

Who are the Judges?

The awards are judged by the Digital Leaders Advisory Board, an arms length independent group of leading digital figures from the private sector, Whitehall, Local Government and non-profit sectors and is chaired by Jacqueline de Rojas. See them
