ShortList Brit List 2013

Who is your male icon of the year?

Vote now for 2013’s ultimate hero as ShortList launches The Brit List

Britain has always punched above its weight, and it’s not just because of rampant greed or war-mongering aggression. No, it’s largely been because of our world-beating talent. And today, the quality of talent across a wide variety of fields, from sport to film to music to art, has never been stronger.

It’s with this in mind that ShortList will soon be revealing The Brit List, a run-down of the most exciting new talents in the country. For this, we’ve teamed up with that purveyor of British character, Lamb’s Navy Rum, with whom we’ll be holding an event on 23 October at The View from The Shard.

You have the chance to attend the party with the frothy cream of British talent by taking part in our online poll to nominate the British Male Icon Of The Year.

Yes, we’re looking backwards before we look forward, and we’d like you to take your pick of who you consider to be 2013’s most inspiring achiever from the men opposite, then go to ShortList.com/britlist to vote. Keep an eye out for updates on The Brit List in the next few issues, and don’t miss our Brit List special, where the next gen will be birthed. Ugh, that sounds disgusting.
