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.

Hannah Sturrock, head of operations at The Hallway, is looking for “entries written with care and sensitivity”.
“Tightly composed entries are easier to read, and the personality shines through, without being suffocated by unnecessary words like ‘highly’ and ‘very’. Brutal sub-editing is always going to win points from me!”
