Five days in, nearly ten thousand votes amassed, and a plethora of tactics we hadn’t seen before: People’s Choice is going off its rocker.
Proving why they work in this industry, hopefuls for People’s Choice are utilising their skillsets to snag as many votes as possible. And we are loving it!
While Monday saw Thomas Winch from News Corp in the lead, his colleague Meagan Gray has surged ahead to be in first place now. (See the bottom for the current top ten). Too, the Daily Mail’s entrant Kane Reiken has had a voting boom. Are the organisations getting behind their young starlets? Does this mean size does matter? We ponder the speculation…
Tuesday morning also heard a surprised squeal from B&T’s sales manager Cat Hay as an EDM popped into her inbox for soliciting votes for one entrant.
Henry Smith from Taste Creative is digging into his digital marketing capabilities, sending out an adorable EDM for votes.
“I really don’t like self-promotion, hence the shortness of this email! I have been shortlisted in the upcoming B&T 30 Under 30 awards, and would love your vote for people’s choice,” he wrote.
“Since I was a kid I always wanted to use the talents I had to help people, and fast forward 27 years and today I am thrilled that I get to do this everyday with a team of just as passionate creatives.”
He also hit up Instagram.
As did Emotive.

Social media is clearly the place to grab the votes, as confirmed by last year’s winner Tanya Moore. Moore is back spruiking the votes on LinkedIn, as Onder Vincent Koc and others are hitting up the Twittersphere.
