excited seinfeld happy dance exciting celebrate

“The calibre of entries each year continues to blow us away,” said David Hovenden, editor-in-chief of B&T. “And I know it was a tough slog for our judges to narrow down the hundreds of entries into these 90 impressive up and comers.”

While we’re wondering what we’ve done with our lives as we read through some of the stand-out hopefuls, it’s proof this industry has some incredible talent. Make sure you grab tickets to the night here.

A massive thank you to all who entered and congratulations to those who made the shortlist! We’d also like to thank our wonderful sponsors (below) and our judges for putting in the hours to make this event happen.

Thank you Aileen McCardle, Ben Gunn, Carlos de Spinola, Caroline Arnold, Chris Freel, Denis Mamo, Gaye Steel, Graham Christie, Hannah Sturrock, Jeff Estok, John Webb, Linda Wong, Lorraine Murphy, Martin Cowie, Mary Ann Azer, Nic Hodges, Nicole McInnes, Stewart Gurney, Will Riley, William Leach, Kristiaan Kroon and Tim Addington.

The B&T 30 Under 30 Awards is going to be a cracker of an evening, held in Sydney at the Art Gallery of New South Wales with media personality James Mathison as MC. Tickets are on sale now, and if you’re on the shortlist, we recommend you snag some tickets quick smart as 2015’s event sold out in record time.
