That we’re now in April is making our brows moisten worryingly at how fast the year is going. It’s going so speedily in fact you only have a few mere days to get your application for B&T 30 Under 30 Awards in!
That’s right, they close on Monday at 5pm (if you don’t want to pay an extra fee). So it’s time to cancel those weekend plans, make a cup of tea or coffee (or overfill a mug with Milo) and bang out your reasoning why you should win one of the 30 awards at the B&T 30 Under 30 Awards.
