2012 proceedings underway ? read on to find out how to nominate.

Professional Jeweller has now opened its nominations for the Hot 100 2012, and is encouraging members of the jewellery industry to put forward nominations of who they think has been the most innovative, forward-thinking and business savvy during the past 12 months.

The nominations process can be used to put forward yourself or your own company, or to otherwise nominate those you admire or have feel have achieved that something extra in the past year.


This year nominations can be submitted in a new way – by means of emailing Professional Jeweller directly.

We are asking those nominating to send a Word document including:

Name(s) of those being nominated
Job title(s) and company
A bullet point list of reasons why they should be considered for this year’s Hot 100. For example: retail achievements, expansion, product or company development, the creation of new initiatives.

Nomination documents should then be emailed to the Professional Jeweller team with the subject line ‘Hot 100 2012 Nomination’ at info@professionaljeweller.com.

Akin to the previous nomination processes, the nominations are not vote-based so you will only need to enter your nomination document once, and all nominations will be considered.

The Hot 100 is now in its third year and is a list of the 100 most influential, forward-thinking and innovative individuals and retail businesses in the UK jewellery industry.

The Hot 100 2012 will be officially announced at a ceremony held in September, with the members of the 100 kept secret until the unveiling.
