Revealed! B&T’s Epic 30 Under 30 Winners 2020!

Revealed! B&T’s Epic 30 Under 30 Winners 2020!

Tonight, adland’s best and brightest swapped stilettos and tuxedos for tracky dacks and slippers to attend B&T’s 30 Under 30 Awards night from the comfort of their own homes.

It was certainly an even to remember, with legendary host Nat’s What I Reckon dishing out comedy gold while the rest of us were able to recognise the top industry performers under the age of 30.

If you missed it or want to rewatch, you can do so here.

A decent 32 awards across 12 categories were awarded tonight (well, they’ll be in the post shortly), including a People’s Choice Award, and of course, a Grand Prix winner. 

B&T wants to thank all of you for “pivoting” with us during this shitty time and joining us online to celebrate a whole bunch of people who really deserve our attention and applause.

So, a massive congrats to all of our inspiring winners, and those on the shortlist, too. 

A special shout out to our amazing sponsors (you guys rock) and our judges who had the near-impossible job of choosing this year’s winners (the calibre was high, people!)

Oh and don’t forget to download the winner’s booklet to show your nan, postman, dog etc HERE!
