Nominate the individuals you believe deserve recognition now.
There are just two days left to submit your nominations for the Professional Jeweller Hot 100 2014, hosted in partnership with Pandora and supported by Diamond Partner IJL.
2014 marks the fifth anniversary of the Hot 100, the UK’s foremost jewellery industry celebration. Each year, the Hot 100 gives you, the industry, the chance to toast the finest jewellery talent working in the UK and Ireland, from the brightest designers and brand leaders to those innovative retailers and business persons that have excelled in their contribution towards our industry in the past year.
Now, just two days remain to nominate those individuals you believe deserve recognition. As in previous years, the nominations are not vote based, so you only need to submit your nomination once. All nominations are considered by the Professional Jeweller editorial team, which itself retains the right to the final decision.
The Hot 100 is split into five industry-led categories: Retail Stars, Business Big Shots, Trendsetters, Trailblazers and NexGems, the last being a category for emerging design talent. Each of the 100 people selected for the Hot 100 2014 will be interviewed and have a dedicated portrait photograph taken to be included in the annual Hot 100 celebratory book.
Just who has made the Hot 100 2014 will be kept entirely secret until the list and souvenir book are unveiled at the exclusive invite-only Hot 100 party in early September, coinciding with the IJL trade show in London.
