THIS



Pestilence may separate us, but we can unite in the collective glory of our industry’s young over achievers.

No, it isn’t the end of isolation and social distancing, sorry, but it’s the next best thing. You entered. The judges judged. The results are in.

B&T‘s 30 Under 30 2020 shortlist is here!

Are you excited? Because we sure are (almost as excited as you’re going to be if you made the shortlist).

The 2020 B&T 30 Under 30 Awards drew in 308 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 2020. For those of you who entered and are older than 30, we admire your never let age be a barrier attitude, but sorry folks, you didn’t make the cut.

And guess what? There’s no big in-person party like usual this year and we’re going to have to content ourselves with virtual drinking games and remote flirting. We’re rapidly figuring out just how the fuck we’re actually going to do that so stay tuned, but don’t buy any bloody tickets just yet.

But quickly, an important note: make sure your name and company are spelled correctly. 

Look, you think you’d know how to spell your own name but we’re human and humans make mistakes sometimes. And if you win, it’s not a great look if your trophy has the wrong spelling on it.

So please advise of any name or company changes ASAP to riin@themisfits.media.

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