The Holmes Report's Innovator 25 is already established as an important barometer of marketing and communications innovation. Since launching in 2013, it has identified 25 individuals each year in North America, EMEA and, more recently Asia-Pacific, who have — in some capacity — elevated and evolved engagement and influence. This year, we'll again take a truly global view of innovation and will have separate lists of 25 innovators for each region: North America, EMEA and Asia-Pacific.
We look to recognize those who have taken risks with big ideas that have paid off; broken down tired silos and built bridges between communications, marketing and sales; cracked measurement, predictive analytics and planning in a meaningful way; or truly mastered compelling storytelling. These are just a few achievements that we would consider innovative.
Submit your nomination here.
The nomination deadline is Monday, June 5.
Innovators can come from any industry — digital marketing, social media, public relations, start-ups, venture capital — as long as their work has elevated the realm of influence and engagement. They can be either agency or client side or, indeed, from the media or other fields. Also like last year, we may name people to the list who we discovered through channels other than nominations.
