Since 2002, we have handed out awards to some of the world's leading entrepreneurs, thinkers, creators, scientists and innovators. De Soto. Miyamoto. Gates. Zuckerberg. Wales. Jobs. People who map our future by pushing themselves to break down boundaries. Those who refuse to stand still. Changing the way we work, think and live.
This year's ceremony is special. So to mark it, we've invited all of our past winners and judges from around the world.
Our theme is 'the essence of truly great innovation'. And this year we'll be giving the Anniversary prize to an Innovation Award winner from the last ten years, as voted for by Economist readers.
