About

Now in their sixth year, the Digital Masters Awards are the only event of their kind to showcase the individuals behind the headlines – the dedicated and talented executives responsible for delivering the innovation and growth that are the hallmarks of the European digital revolution.

The awards recognise the top C- and VP-level leaders from the region’s digital businesses: from CEO of the Year, through to excellence in functional disciplines of Marketing, General Management, Technology, Product, Finance,  Data, Commercial Management, People & Talent, and our newest category - Rising Star - showcasing the best leaders of tomorrow.

The Digital Masters Awards are subject to a three-part selection process.

1. Through industry nominations and extensive canvassing of market opinion, across functions, seniority, sector and location, a longlist is compiled in each of the categories.

2. From the longlist, The Judging Panel select a shortlist of individuals in each of the twelve categories who have performed outstandingly well in their respective fields during the previous 12 months.

3. Each of the shortlisted candidates are further scrutinised by the judges during an afternoon of deliberation and discussion to determine the top three, including a winner and two runners up, in each category.
