As part of an annual tradition here at On Leadership, every December we ask a panel of prominent leadership experts which leaders they think think deserve top accolades for their performance over the course of the year. Experts from On Becoming a Leader author Warren Bennis to True North author Bill George to In Search of Excellence author Tom Peters weighed in. See which leadership expert nominated which leader in our photo gallery.

They produced the nominations, and now we want to know: Who deserves the top prize? Angela Merkel? Hillary Clinton? Steve Jobs? Tim Tebow?

Cast your vote below from the nominations our leadership panel put forward.

Think the leadership experts should have nominated someone who isn’t on this list? Leave a comment below with your nomination.
