We get it, voting in the B&T 30 Under 30 People’s Choice Awards is very exciting and riveting. But that doesn’t give you license to cheat!
Unfortunately – not naming any names – one of you were caught fudging vote numbers by B&T‘s multi-processing, artificial intelligence, supercomputer or something, and were disqualified.
However, the competition is still on and we’re still keen to see which one of you marketingcomms whizkids have the charisma and personable charm to win yourself a People’s Choice Award at the upcoming B&T 30 Under 30 event.
At this stage, it seems OMD Australia’s Onam Khatri is still comfortably in the lead with a walloping 32,842 votes, well ahead of Half Dome’s Cassie Longmuir and Finder’s Soujanya Datta, with 1895 and 1640 votes, respectively.
You can check out the leaderboard, as of this morning, below:
|Name||Votes (So Far)|
|1. Onam Khatri – OMD Australia||32,842|
|2. Cassie Longmuir – Half Dome||1895|
|3. Soujanya Datta – Finder||1640|
|4. Neil Sura – Octagon||1531|
|5. Joanna Szkurat – Zenith Media||1521|
|6. Eugenia Yeung – Reprise Digital||1235|
|7. Alysha Calder – Nine||1233|
|8. Emmalee Fagerstrom – Yahoo||1219|
|9. Arushi Srivastava – Cashrewards||1212|
|10. Luke Duignan – Seven||1206|
As you can see, Onam Khatri has paved a country road between herself and current runner-up, Cassie Longmuir. However, further down the list things are a little more heated, with only a handful of votes separating Octagon’s Neil Sura and Zenith Media’s Joanna Szkurat, and a similar number of votes separating sixth to tenth place.
If Neil Goldman dressed as Uncle Sam isn’t a big enough hint, we want you to exercise your democratic right and have your say if adland’s biggest and most prestigious popularity contest.
Don’t see your’s or your buddy’s name up there? Keen to maintain your position, or make a last minute dash to the top? With only one week left, it’s time to get crackin’ and get votin’!
