So 2012, a year that promised much, and in the case of the odd sporting event at least delivered in spades, is heading for the exit door.
What then will 2013 bring? Who are going to be the key people that we will be talking about in tech, sport and style?
Our rather small panel of Brandish writers got together then to name the 15 people we think are going to have a very good year in 2013. Some have achieved incredible things already, others will become much higher profile next year. We may of course be way off the mark, but at this point if we were betting men these are the 15 we’d be slapping the cash on.
So here’s the list. Who have we missed?
Pics from various sources – some are PA. The Martin Brighty pic was originally from the excellent Modcast.

Shaw is one of the partners behind Albam Menswear whose output this year has been very impressive. Love those beautifully cut coats and jackets and you can't go wrong with their Breton stripey hats. Shaw and Albam are likely to become even more high profile in 2013.
