While Christmas is still 265 days away, our next favourite day in the calendar is happening in just seven days. This time next Thursday, we’ll be getting glammed/suited up for one of the best nights of the year. That’s right, we’re talking about B&T‘s 30 Under 30 Awards.
The shortlist has been announced, our People’s Choice has been chosen, and early bird ticket sales are now closed.
We’ve been babbling on about it for a while now so if you don’t know what we’re talking about, well, there’s really just no hope for you.
But OK, we’ll play nice. Here’s the lowdown. Next Thursday, we’re giving recognition to some of the best of the best in the industry. The cream of the crop, if you will.
The catch? They must be under 30. There are 10 categories, including sales, marketing, journalist, creative and a ton more under the umbrella of media, marketing and advertising. There will be three winners from each category, an uber popular People’s Choice winner and a Grand Prix Award for the most impressive young gun overall.
We had well over 300 entries from the industry’s best and brightest, plus over hundreds of thousands of votes for the People’s Choice winner. Yes … you read that right.
No wonder it’s one of the most unmissable events of the year! There’ll be merriment, awards, networking, drinks, a fab gala dinner.
Then, our shortlisted candidates will be crossing their fingers and toes as the 30 category award winners are announced. There’ll be suspense, applause, and tears of joy (and we hope no sad tears, there’s always next year! Unless you’re 29 …)
The event is happening next Thursday April 11.
We don’t need to tell you it’s obviously too late to enter, but you can still buy tickets. Tickets are selling out at lightning speed and we’d hate to see you sitting at home next Thursday, watching our Insta story in vain.
See you next week!
