Tell the world how you're making a difference

Computing is showcasing the UK's top tech talent in our Tech Rising Stars 50 list.

If you are a UK-based technologist, age 30 or below who is innovating, making waves, pursuing a vision or driving change, put yourself forward and gain the kudos and recognition you deserve.

Who should enter?

To enter, you just need to be a technologist who's 30 or under with an inspiring story to tell.

You might be a developer or an engineer who's pioneered a new approach, created a new product or driven efficiencies.

You could be a data scientist in the vanguard of a new discovery, an ops specialist in open source or cloud native, someone engaged in green tech, an analyst who's helped your organisation break into a fresh market, or an ethical hacker who's spotted a vulnerability.

You may be a tech leader who has led your team to new heights, or an individual forging a new path.

Or perhaps your energy and ideas have helped bring tangible benefits to people, the environment, your locality or your business's bottom line.

Whatever your role, the size or sector of your organisation we're looking for people whose tech talent is making a real difference.

If this is you, put yourself forward. If not, why not nominate a friend or colleague who deserves recognition for their talents?
