Future 50

The best people in technology
The only awards of its kind, the inaugural Future 50 ranks the industry's most influential individuals, with the winners in each category announced live at the Future Technology Awards in Las Vegas on January 8th, 2020. 
The Future 50 ranks the top 50 individuals in technology across key categories including: 
  • CEOs & Executive Leadership
  • Young Professionals (under 30 years old)
  • YouTube & Media Creators
  • PR & Communications 
  • Marketing & Advertising
  • Product managers, designers and engineers
Recognizing a wider scope of individuals than other award programs, the Future Tech Awards honors the best of the industry. Nominations for the Future 50 are open now, and you can either nominate yourself or one of your peers. Nominations close on December 4th, 2019, with deliberations to follow.
Winners will be revealed at the Future Tech Awards in:
Everyone is welcome to be nominated, but the eventual winners will demostrate vision, ingenuity and leadership in their key areas. The Future 50 are the people leading this industry in key areas right now, as well as those showing the capacity to be future leaders and visionaries within the US technology space.
Founded an incredible startup? Launched a new brand? Built a marketing or PR campaign that's completely out of the box? Revolutionizing video production, coverage or creation? Under 30 and tipped to be the next great thing? If you're any of these, or know someone, we welcome your nomination!
Nominate yourself, or anyone who fits the criteria above. Nominations are open until December 8, 2019 after which the Future 50 committee will determine the shortlist ahead of the next phase. Stay tuned for more information!
The testimonials you provide are added to the mix when we come to deciding who should be ranked where. The winner of each category is chosen based on their accomplishments in 2019, but will retain their title until a new winner is crowned next year.
From early January, we'll begin to announce positions 6-10 for each category. During CES week (January 7th to 10th), we'll reveal the eventual shortlist of 3 people for each category, with individual winners being announced during the Future Tech Awards on January 8th, 2020.

There is no charge to nominate someone in the Future 50 or Hall of Fame awards. The form has two parts – the nominee's details, and one key question: why are they being nominated for the Future 50 and Hall of Fame.
