THE REBELS 2016: MEET THE PANEL
Those in the know will be aware that we’re back on the hunt for THE REBELS: this year’s definitive list of contemporary travel’s most disruptive, innovative (and of course, rebellious) brands. In the lead-up to the awards ceremony in Miami in June, we’re calling for your applications in categories ranging from Most Creative Collaboration to Sexiest Design – so to put your best foot forward and be in with a chance of being recognised alongside the industry’s top players, APPLY HERE BY 25 FEBRUARY.
Your submitted work will be sent directly to our creative class panel, spearheaded by CEO of the Creative Class Group, Rana Florida. This eclectic crowd of cultural insiders has been purposely drawn from a cross-section of related industries spanning design, F&B, branding, film, art and beyond, in order to truly represent the demographic of travellers targeted by the LE Miami collective.
The panel will be tasked with choosing the entries that best represent each category during a panel event at Delano South Beach in March, before we reveal the shortlist and hand over to you to select your winners. Whilst you’re considering what kind of REBEL you are and what to apply for, here’s a preview of this year’s judges…
