The h.Club 100: the winners
We salute the innovators, visionaries and pioneers behind what’s now and what’s next.
London media gurus The Hospital Club and Time Out devised the h.Club 100: a search for the most original and influential people in the UK creative and media industries. Then we asked you to vote – and here are the results: the talent that is shaping the future.
Okay, there are actually not exactly 100 people on this list: Grayson Perry sneaked in twice and we’ve counted some multi-person projects as one entry. That's okay, though. It’s a reminder that this is a snapshot of where UK creativity, in all its messy brilliance, is at right now. It’s been an incredible year for the arts in the UK. In 2012 we fell for ‘Sherlock’ (again), cheered on ‘Matilda’ and cried at Danny Boyle’s Olympics curtain-raiser. From backroom boys to major stars, we salute the innovators, visionaries and pioneers behind what’s now and what’s next.
Is there someone we've missed? Browse the list below then tell us who you think should have made the Top 100 in the comments below.
