Progress 1000 London’s Most Influential People

The Progress 1000 is a list of 1,000 people published annually by tabloid newspaper The London Evening Standard.

The list features politicians, athletes, tech experts and religious figures among others. Despite operating in vastly different industries, they’re connected by one thing – their influence over the city of London. Being from or living in London isn’t a requirement. Their work, words and achievements must simply have made an impact on the city over the last year.

According to the Evening Standard, these individuals represent “the changing face of London: diverse, adaptable, socially inclusive and progressive”. The Evening Standard has been publishing the list for 10 years. The newspaper selects individuals from a range of industries. These include business, technology, science, politics, design, architecture, culture and arts. Fatos Ustek is listed among the 47 artists and curators, in 2018 and in 2017
