B&T’s 30 Under 30 Awards are back for its 11th year, and we’re coming to you today to say entries for 2020 are officially open – say what!?
We know, we’re getting in early but who knows, maybe you guys want to start your applications over the Xmas/New Year break? We’re not going to judge if that’s how you choose to spend your break (in fact, we encourage early entries – it shows us you’re serious about winning, ya know?)
For those who don’t know, the 30 Under 30 Awards are widely regarded as the leading showcase for the best and brightest young talent working across marketing communications.
Some may already be in positions of leadership, while others may be starting out, but these awards champion those people that go above and beyond the call of duty in the daily working lives, and demonstrate excellence and a vital contribution to their current employer, and their determination and desire to progress their careers.
Three outstanding individuals will be recognised for their achievements in each of the 10 categories, as well as a Grand Prix Award for the most influential individual overall. All entrants will also be a part of the People’s Choice poll, to be opened after entries are closed.
In 2020, the 30 Under 30 Awards will be held on Thursday 23rd of April at The Metro Theatre, 624 George St, Sydney.
Here are the 30 Under 30 categories:
