The GamesIndustry 100: UK Edition will take into account the entire UK games business - development, publishing, media, services, retail and education. We're not just looking for the obvious candidates either; we want to hear about unsung heroes and rising stars who are making an impact on your business and the industry as a whole. The list is not exclusively for British people, it is for anyone working within the UK industry, irrespective of their nationality or country of origin.

If you have a name, or names, of people you'd like to see considered for the 100, please email with your suggestion. Please include their full name, their current employer (if applicable) and a sentence or two on why they should be considered. The deadline for nominations is the end of the day on Friday, January 13th.

These names will then be put forward to a judging panel of industry luminaries, who will be named alongside the list.

The magazine will reveal the final list, alongside interviews with the 100, exclusive UK market data and other high profile articles and opinion pieces from experienced industry commentators.
