Our search to identify the North’s leading  media and creative industry figures is at an end.

From Monday, we’ll be revealing the 100 names to have made it into the inaugural Prolific Northerners list, supported by Weber Shandwick and Melbourne Server Hosting.

You’ve had your own say, our outstanding panel of judges has deliberated and, together with our own exhaustive research, we’ve come up with a list that is likely to be the definitive collection of industry movers and shakers in 2014.

We’ll be releasing 20 names a day from Monday to Friday next week. The list will be unranked and will be released in no particular order.
