We want to hear from you! Nominate Your ICONS of California Lifestyle & Culture Today

We need your help to name the ICONS of California culture. Become a part of the conversation and nominate who you think best embodies the iconic California lifestyle. Give us your nominees, and your reasons why he or she belongs, and we’ll continue this event with ongoing voting and awards that lead into next year.

  • This is a celebration of innovative, passionate work.
  • These ICONS can be young or old, athletes or musicians, business tycoons or agents for social and environmental change.
  • There aren’t a lot of rules other than majority rules; and it’s up to you to nominate your favorites.

Sure, surf icons like Bruce Brown, Robert August, the Paskowitz family, Tom Curren, as well as innovators like Sean Collins and newcomers like Courtney Conlogue, Lakey Peterson, Kanoa Igarashi and Conner Coffin have strong resumes … right?

But the iconic California lifestyle equally belongs to artists like Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Gwen Stefani, Brian Grazer, Mickey Avalon, Van Halen, Greg Ginn, Cameron Diaz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jessica Alba, Clint Eastwood, Sean Penn and Camille Rose Garcia … doesn’t it?

What about athletes such as Kerri Walsh Jennings, Ryan Sheckler, Paul Rodriguez, Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Kobe Bryant, Tito Ortiz, EJ Johnson and more … they’re in aren’t they?

And don’t forget business leaders such as Alli Webb, Nick Woodman, Marc Benioff, Henry Segerstrom, Donald Bren, Richard O’Neill and others … can’t they equally claim this title?

It’s up to you to nominate your ICONS.

Do pioneers that migrated to California such as Frank Gehry, Elon Musk, Robert Wyland, Keanu Reeves, Rhys Millen, Walt Disney and others belong?

What about ground-breaking brands like Apple, Bebe, Katin USA, Volcom, Toms, Williams-Sonoma, Wells Fargo, Restoration Hardware and Stance?

You decide. Nominate your ICONS today!
