Variety Accepting Submissions for Hollywood’s New Leaders List

Annual list profiles best and brightest young showbiz execs

Variety is soliciting pitches for its annual Hollywood’s New Leaders/10 Assistants to Watch feature, which will run on October 22.

Now in its third year, this section spotlights the next generation of leadership in the entertainment industry by profiling the most promising individuals 36 and under who are taking on growing responsibilities.

Our list will include individuals working at studios, networks, agencies, law firms, financial institutions and management companies, as well as in production, digital media and publicity. Rising entrepreneurs will also be profiled.

Alongside the New Leaders list, this section will include 10 Assistants to Watch, a shorter list focusing on up-and-coming executive assistants and coordinators who are on the verge of breaking into the junior executive ranks.

As always, we’ll profile the most qualified individuals our editors can identify. Anyone who wants to send names for our consideration should email brief descriptions that include the person’s company, title, age as of October 22, a list of accomplishments and – most important – career milestones indicating a rise to leadership.

Please send emails to Peter Caranicas: peter.caranicas@variety.com. To qualify for the main list, the individual must be 36 or under on October 22. The deadline for submissions is September 16.
