The Daily Mail has come out swinging for its 30 Under 30 hopeful Kane Reiken, who, as of this morning, is coming first in the People’s Choice race.
With just two days to go until we close the poll, votes have surpassed twenty-five thousand, eclipsing the number we had for People’s Choice 2015. You can still vote here until 5pm AEST May 11 2015.
This time last week it was M&C Saatchi’s Celeste Toffanello battling it out against Give Art Science’s Joel Chapman. But oh how things change! Reiken had been decidedly in the race, but over this weekend the numbers surged Reiken to the top of the pack.
Still, there’s literally only a handful of votes between the top three. And everyone else in the top ten (below) is close on each other’s heels. Get voting!
And in case you missed it, we revealed our super talented shortlist for the B&T 30 Under 30 Awards last week. Our incredible judges worked tirelessly to whittle the list of more than 200 down to 90.
Tickets are available for this cracking evening in Sydney, May 26, but we recommend booking as soon as possible as they’re already selling like hotcakes.
The top ten for People’s Choice as of 10.30am this morning.
