The public vote for this year’s Hospital Club hClub100 awards is now open: vote for those who you think are among the most influential and innovative people working across Britain’s creative industries in the past 12 months
London private members’ club The Hospital organises the hClub 100 each year in order to try to identify influential and innovative people working across categories including broadcast, fashion, music and advertising. CR editor Patrick Burgoyne was on the panel for the art and design category this year alongside Nancy Durrant, arts commissioning editor and an art critic at The Times and Victoria Siddall, director of Frieze Masters.
As with the other categories, the judges were tasked with selecting a shortlist from some 1000 nominations submitted by the public earlier this year. Each panel chose nine award winners. A 10th place in each category will be selected by a public vote which runs until September 24.
The Art & Design shortlist includes design studio UVA, Carl Burgess of More Soon (who wrote about CG for CR’s August issue, photographer Laura Pannack, Universal Everything‘s Matt Pyke, Tom Evans of BleepBleeps and illustrator Kristjana S Williams.
Nominees for advertising (which CR was not involved in) include Grey ECD Nils Leonard, Nick Farnhill of Poke and directors Ringan Ledwidge and Tom Tagholm.
