Who is eligible to be nominated?
Everyone is welcome to be nominated, but the eventual winners will demonstrate 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!
How are the rankings decided?
The testimonials and votes you provide are added to the mix when we come to deciding who should be ranked where. More information will be provided in early November after the nomination period ends.
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.
How are the rankings announced?
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 in Las Vegas, NV.
The Future 50 and the Future Hall of Fame Awards are part of the Future Tech awards, which will feature the best people, products, and services from across the US technology sector.
