The Results Are In! 30 Under 30 Shortlist Revealed

The Results Are In! 30 Under 30 Shortlist Revealed

The day you’ve all been waiting is finally here. You entered. The judges judged. The results are in. B&T‘s 2019 30 Under 30 shortlist has been compiled. Are you excited? Because we sure are (Almost as excited as you’re going to be if you made the shortlist).

The 2019 B&T 30 Under 30 Awards drew in 337 entries from the industry’s best and brightest.

And now, we have the cream of the crop, the best of the best – the shortlisted candidates for 2019!

While we wish everyone could be shortlisted, alas, that’s not the way it works.

The judges have had their work cut out for them, culling down some pretty impressive entries to a few high-scoring individuals from each category.

But before we get to the shortlist (even though we know you’re just going to scroll down anyway to hopefully find your name), this an important note: make sure your name and company are spelled correctly. 

Yes, we know you submitted it and you should theoretically know how to spell your own name and the name of your company. But people make mistakes. And if you win, a trophy really won’t look as good if your name is spelled wrong, will it?

So please advise of any name or company changes ASAP to by Friday March 29th.

The 30 Under 30 Awards will be held in Sydney at the ivy in Sydney on Thursday 11th April. And a friendly reminder that if you’ve been shortlisted, you must buy a ticket to the event. Grab your tix here!

Are you ready to find out if you’ve been shortlisted?
