Who are Digital Leaders?

Digital Leaders is an initiative that has created a shared professional space for senior leadership from different sectors promoting effective, long-term digital transformation. For more information on what we do, visit: http://digileaders.com/about/

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 shortlist 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 three in each category are then put in a final order by the judges. The top places in the list and the category winners will be announced on the 21st of June 2018 at an Awards dinner.

Who are the Judges?

Our panel of 16 Judges is independant and cross sector. For the full overview of the panel, please visit:


Can I contact Judging Panel directly and get feedback on my nomination?

Unfortunately, our Judges are unable to provide feedback on individual nominations.

Are the awards for the organisations or individuals?

Our categories recognise individual, organisation or a service/product. Please refer to the category description for exact details.

When will the DL100 List be announced?

The 6th DL100 list 2018 will be publicly announced in the week 9th April when the public vote will open to put them into order.
