The Future8 team have spent some time with our expert judges to find out more about their experience in the creative and digital industries! Today we met with Wil Harris, Director of Digital at Condé Nast UK! Will is our of our Online Video category judges.

We asked Wil about his extensive experience in the digital world to date:

“As Director of Digital, I’m responsible for publishing tablet and smartphone editions of the magazines, as well as the dedicated web presences.  Prior to working at Condé, I Co-Founded ChannelFlip Media, the UK’s leading producer of online video content, and one of the top YouTube Multi-Channel Networks in the world.”

Since the Future8 Awards are all about fusing creativity and digital skills, and celebrating these talents, we asked Wil – How do you think technology and creativity are linked?

“In a 21st century world, the two are intrinsically linked. Technology makes it possible for every single person to express their creativity – it truly democratises the ability to make something cool. Technology is a great enabler of creativity.”

Remember there are 8 categories where you can express YOUR creativity – check them out here!
