Spoilers! Check Out The 30 Under 30 Winners Announced on The 31st of March HERE.

Okay, you’re antsy. And who could blame you? You’ve worked your heart out to get where you are and you deserve to be recognised for it.

Well, be antsy no more, because the shortlist for the 2022 B&T 30 Under 30 Awards is finally here! No more incessant refreshing, no more tossing-and-turning in your sleep, no more double-checking your chakras are properly aligned for this moment.

Out of the 343 who applied, our team of all-elite, hot shot judges have whittled it down to a shortlist of the best and the brightest our industry has to offer (that are under the age of 30, obviously).

The 2022 B&T 30 Under 30 Awards will be held Thursday, 31 March at The Factory Theatre in Marrickville. To avoid contracting a nasty case of FOMOitis, be sure to snap up those tickets here.

And before we get into the juicy stuff, please take the time to make sure your name and company are spelled correctly. After all your hard work, the last thing you want is a typo on your precious trophy. If there are any spelling errors, please contact by the March 15th.

And now, without further adieu, your shortlist for the 2022 B&T 30 Under 30 Awards!
