Get your typing fingers ready—it's time to nominate the 2014 crop of young marketing luminaries for Direct Marketing News's 40 Under 40 Awards.

We're looking for inspirational marketers who have helped significantly grow their companies; wowed clients with creative or strategic plans; and influenced the industry in numerous ways—from enhancing the core elements of direct marketing, to advancing measurement and guiding their company and clients on mastering new technologies.

These are the top marketers of today—and tomorrow—that you need to keep your eye on.

Nominees must be:

  • Under 40 years old as of October 1, 2014
  • A client-side/brand marketer: a senior marketing executive (e.g., director, VP, SVP, CMO) at any type of organization
  • Or a senior executive  (e.g., president, CEO, marketing VP, CMO) at a marketing services company; for example, a creative agency, marketing services firm, data or list company, or technology firm that supports/sells to marketers

Extended deadline: Monday, June 16, 2014

Winners will be notified the week of June 30, 2014. Acceptance of the award requires an interview for the print and online editions of Direct Marketing News­—within our deadline. Additionally, winners will be invited to attend the photo shoot for the print edition, as well as a swank awards luncheon featuring a keynote presentation and a Q&A with the winners on success strategies and leadership.
