Yes, it’s that time again – B&T’s 30 Under 30 Awards are back for the 10th straight year, and we’re ready to accept your entry.
For those who aren’t already aware, 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.
