B&T’s coveted 30 Under 30 awards are back with a bang, and we’re looking for the most determined, talented and innovative young guns in the business.

Are you a kick ass creative, marketing mastermind or entrepreneurial wizard, as well as being under the age of 30? Well, you’re in the right place.

This year, we’re running things a little bit differently. We have 10 amazing categories this year – new, old and updated. Be sure to give the Criteria Document a good read to learn all about these bad boys.

We’re also hosting it a little earlier than usual, with the mammoth shindig taking place at The Ivy Ballroom in Sydney on Thursday April 27.

The event launches with our fab principal sponsor NewsMediaWorks, who’s been backing our awards and the industry’s incredible young talent for three years now.

We’ll also be expanding our prestigious 30 under 30 event to incorporate a daytime forum, so keep your eyes peeled for more info about that next week.

Check out your 10 categories:

  1. Creative
  2. Entrepreneur
  3. Journalist/Producer
  4. Marketing
  5. Media Planner/Buyer
  6. PR
  7. Project Manager
  8. Sales/Account Manager
  9. Strategy
  10. Tech

You can find all the details on the awards right here, but we’ve rounded up the main dates to stick in your diary for you already:

  • Entries open: 25 January
  • On-time entries close: 6 March
  • Late entries close: 13 March
  • Judging period: 13 March – 29 March
  • Early bird tickets on sale: 25 January
  • Early birds close/full price on sale: 7 April
  • Shortlist announced: 3 April
  • People’s Choice poll: 15 March – 5 April

You can buy your tickets now here, and kickstart your entries here, but the most important thing is to enter you MUST be under the age of 30 on the day of the event, April 27. We’ve seen how many of you try to sneak through!

P.S – be sure to save your entries in a Word doc in case so many of you jump onto the Awards Portal that it crashes. We’re just lookin’ out for you guys.

Stay tuned for plenty more informative and entertaining articles on the event shortly.
