The Global Telecoms Business Power100 of 2014

IMPORTANT notice about the deadline. 

The official deadline was 1 August 2014. Huge numbers of people achieved that without problem. However one or two people have asked for extra time. 

All nominations should be in by close of business UK time on Friday 15 August. Nominations received by that time will be sent to the judging panel. The judges will not be able to consider nominations received after that deadline.
Nominations for the Global Telecoms Business Power 100 of 2014 are now open.
We are looking for the 100 people in the telecoms industry worldwide who have made the biggest contribution to the telecoms industry in 2013-14. Global Telecoms Business has been publishing an annual Power100 since our 100th print issue in 2008.
Please nominate senior executives, thought leaders and innovators for this year’s list, which will be published on Friday 26 September 2014. 
All nominations MUST be by email using the form that can be downloaded from the link below.
The editor reserves the right to seek further information about nominees and to ask for further nominations.
The editor will not enter into correspondence about nominations, from people either wanting to lobby for certain nominees or to ask about the progress of any nomination.
We will give no information about the final list until Friday 26 September.
If you want to nominate other people, use separate emails for each. Do not mix more than one person in one email. 
How to nominate

Nominations must say clearly why the person should be considered, because of his or her current contributions to the industry or role in the industry. We do NOT want a resumé of their career copied from the corporate website.
If the person is selected we will publish their name and job title in our printed September/October issue and online without further reference, though we may provided embargoed information. We reserve our right to edit the text at our sole discretion.
