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?

Each year, the digital leaders’ community, together with the wider digital sector, nominates their favourites across each of 10 categories with 10 available places to create a final list of 100. Our judges short list the nominees into a final list of 100 and following the announcement of this list, a public vote is opened to put the 100 names into 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.
