This year, a group of advisors will hand pick 5 finalists specifically suited to our audience, following the call for submissions.

The search committee -- seated with influential executives from major brands, technology companies, agencies and holding companies -- is looking for true game-changers. Finalists and winners will represent the best and brightest in a variety of emerging technology platforms.
