We know you’ve been waiting with bated breath, endlessly refreshing the B&T homepage waiting for this very article to appear. Now, the wait is over and we’re thrilled to announce the 30 Under 30 Shortlist!

The entries have been submitted, the judges have done their judging and now, the results are in. We’re ready to share our list of the industry’s top twenty-somethings.

Out of the 328 entries, our judges have hand-selected the best and brightest, the boldest and biggest to bring you this list.

The 30 under 30 awards are taking place this year on Thursday, 15 April at The Factory Theatre. Make sure you get your tickets here to ensure you don’t miss out on any of the action.

And if you didn’t make the cut this year – no worries! There’s no time like the present to start readying your engines for next year’s competition.

Before we get down to the juicy stuff, an important message from the B&T team: please make sure your name and company are spelled right. 

There’s nothing more embarrassing than having a misplaced trophy displayed on your mantlepiece/bookshelf/windowsill above the toilet.

If there are any spelling errors, please contact riin@themisfits.media by the March 29th.

Remember, you can also still vote for the 30 Under 30 People’s Choice awards!

Ok, now all that’s done, ready yourselves. It’s shortlist time!
