The Digital Leaders DL100 list, now in its eighth year, celebrates the teams and individuals working hard behind the scenes to secure UK digital transformation. It finds its winners by blending public opinion together with professional expertise.

2019’s DL100 winners included overall winner Seyi Akiwowo, Digital Charity of the Year Action for Children, joint winners of Digital Skills and Inclusion Initiative of the Year Brixton Finishing School and Neatebox, and HealthTech Innovation of the Year Cancer Central.

Digital Leaders is a shared professional online space and face-to-face programme for leaders promoting digital transformation. Since 2013 it has asked the public to help it find 100 digital pioneers from across the UK’s public, private and non-profit sectors.

Nominations for the 2019 DL100 list are free and easy to submit. They close on Friday the 28th of February at 23:59 GMT

The Digital Leaders judging panel shortlist the entries to a final list of 100 at the start of April, before the public vote opens to rank the 100 names in order.

Finally, a top three in each of the 10 categories (listed below) is put into order by the judges – with the top places in the list and the category winners announced at an awards dinner during Digital Leaders Week® 2020.
