The Drum’s Future 50, which identifies and celebrates the world’s best new brand-side marketers, is back for 2021 and we need you to nominate up-and-coming talent.

For the past two years, the Future 50 has spotlighted emerging marketing talent across the industry. The list, published in partnership with The Trade Desk, celebrates the work of brand marketers both young and new to the industry as they work to push their brands forward in an era of existential threat for businesses.

The events of the past year have pushed many brands and organizations to the limit while also providing a baptism of fire for those behind the wheel. So we’re asking readers to nominate themselves – or their colleagues – for consideration.

You can nominate yourself or a colleague here.

Problem-solving superheroes

  • To be eligible for the Future 50 for 2021, nominees must currently work for a brand’s marketing department or have a track record of specializing in brand marketing (this is to ensure those on furlough or who have been made redundant are not unfairly penalized).

  • They must also be under the age of 30 or have worked in brand marketing for less than 18 months.

  • All relevant job titles falling under the marcomms umbrella will be considered, but this project is only open to client-side talent.
