Nominations are now open to find the 100 most innovative and influential figures within the watch industry in the UK and Ireland for the second annual WatchPro Hot100.
The WatchPro Hot 100 was launched last year to celebrate the achievements of the brightest stars within the industry from designers and manufacturers to the people who market, distribute and sell the watches they make.
Figures from within the UK watch industry can be nominated by colleagues or nominate themselves and entry to the final list is judged on their performance within the last 12 months.
Each successful entrant to the WatchPro Hot100 will be interviewed and have an exclusive portrait photograph taken. These are then compiled in the WatchPro Hot100 2014 book, to be released in July at a glittering launch party in London.
The publication is divided into chapters covering Retail Titans, Power Players, Brand Champions, The Entrepreneurs, The Innovators and Ones to Watch and the final list will kept secret until the big reveal.
How to enter
Entry is simple. A single nomination by email to firstname.lastname@example.org qualifies a person for inclusion on the shortlist and should include the person’s:
company and position
a brief summary of the reason they are being nominated, which can include supporting information that will be treated in the strictest confidence.
There is no voting procedure and the final Hot100 will be decided upon by Editor of WatchPro and WatchPro Hot100, James Buttery.
Nominations will remain open until Monday 17 March.
