Creative Entrepreneurs Wanted!

Do you know a pioneer running a UK-based creative business - or are you running one yourself? Is the business shaking up the industry and destined to make an even bigger impact in the future?

We're inviting emerging UK-based creative entrepreneurs to apply for inclusion in the Creative Entrepreneur category in the h Club 100.

The British Council-supported Creative Entrepreneur category will recognise the work of ten people whose businesses are making the UK creative economy so exciting in 2014.

We are looking for people who have started their own innovative and pioneering creative businesses. The businesses should have been running for 2 - 7 years; young but already making their mark.

Ten of the most exciting entrepreneurs will be selected by a panel of expert judges and will appear in the prestigious h Club 100, the annual list of the most innovative and influential people who’ve been working in Britain’s creative sectors for the past 12 months. The winners will be honoured at an exclusive event at the Hospital Club in October, alongside judges and press.

This is a category to celebrate young businesses and the people behind them. The definition of creative business includes music, performance, fashion, gaming, media, events, publishing, art, design and broadcast.

Nominate someone - or yourself- here

The closing date for nominations is 29 June 2014.
