It’s rare the B&T site is inundated with such traffic over a weekend. But it was clear from our analytics hopefuls for B&T 30 Under 30 Awards were glued to a screen voting for People’s Choice.
More than 3000 votes in, we already have a frontrunner.
Thomas Winch from News Corp Australia has knocked it out of the park. Currently he’s in first place among hundreds of entries.
However, Onder Vincent Koc from Resolution Media isn’t far behind. And he’s also closely followed by Francesca Emma Cissell from Luxottica.
The top ten as of 9am this morning are:
- Thomas Winch – News Corp
- Onder Vincent Koc – Resolution Media
- Francesca Emma Cissell – Luxottica
- Emma Mumford – Red Guerilla
- Bobbie Gersbach Smith – M&C Saatchi Mobile
- Celeste Toffanell – M&C Saatchi
- Emily Malone – ntegrity
- Adrian Ciconte – OMD Australia
- Andrew El-Bayeh – Merivale
- Felicity Robertson – Red Agency
This list though is by no means the final. There’s only one or two votes between many entrants.
And if this year’s is anything like 2015’s People’s Choice, the leaderboard will continue to change as people abuse their social media contacts in the quest for votes.
Housekeeping: when voting, you can choose one person from each category, but the overall winner will be the person who receives the most votes. And you don’t have to choose one from every category, you can pick just one, or all six. Your choice.
And as always, thank you to all our wonderful sponsors!
