Influencer 50 nominations are once again open for Talking Influence’s annual celebration of individuals from across the globe that are striving to improve the influencer marketing industry and have provided solutions and innovations as the industry accelerates.
Talking Influence is calling on YOU – the industry – to have your say in establishing the coveted annual Influencer 50 shortlist by nominating individuals worthy of inclusion.
What are we looking for?
2020 has certainly been challenging in many ways, but one thing that’s proven resilient is the influencer marketing industry with the breadth of new opportunities and innovations.
We’re looking to showcase 50 exceptional candidates (B2B) from across the globe that have really made a difference to the influencer marketing industry in the last 12 months. Whether that’s by implementing a smart piece of technology, their role as an industry ambassador, driving a campaign that’s changed the way people view the industry, spearheading new programmes, or inspiring positive action to overcome key challenges, we want to know about it.
We are also highlighting the rising stars – those who are new to the industry and have challenged the influencer marketing industry with their fresh ideas and creativity.
The 50 individuals will be featured in Talking Influence later this year.
What previous winners had to say
“Having always been the entrepreneurial type, I’ve worked hard over the past few years towards my passion for growing and uniting the influencer marketing space. Being included in the Influencer 50 and knowing that my industry peers have nominated me and have faith in my expertise and leadership gives me the confidence to continue to strive for great things within the industry,” commented Ben Jeffries, CEO and co-founder at Influencer.
“Being named as one of the Influencer 50 in a list that includes incredibly talented global entrepreneurs was a huge honour and meant a lot to me. It’s going to be really exciting to see this year’s list! I can’t wait to see the talent shaping our industry’s new media,” said Ana Thorsdottir, head of business development, EMEA, Tagger Media.
All entries will be carefully debated and assessed by the Talking Influence team based on the reasons outlined in the submission form so make sure you include evidence of how that individual has helped shape the industry this year – the more specific, the better.
Please note, candidates cannot nominate themselves to be featured in the list. A representative within a company, however, can nominate someone from their organisation. We base this on the individual’s work and contribution to supporting the influencer marketing industry this year.
To nominate someone for the #Influencer50, simply complete this form. To help spread the word and support your nominations, voters and nominees are encouraged to share their entries using the hashtag #Influencer50. Nominations close midnight (BST), Tuesday 22 September.
You can look at last year’s list here. We look forward to seeing your nominations and celebrating the excellence of the influencer industry.
