B&T’s 30 Under 30 Awards 2017 and daytime Forum Towards 2030 have both launched! To get you in the mood for Thursday April 27, we’re breaking down all 10 of the B&T Awards categories. Today it’s the media planning/buying category.
To enter the media planner/buyer category you can be, (but not limited to): media director, media planner, media buyer, media consultant, media coordinator, communications planner, digital buyer, digital planner, planning supervisor, media supervisor, communications director, broadcast planner.
But, before you get too excited and start typing furiously:

- Outline your career path and any key achievements to date.
- What makes you a future leader in your chosen field?
- What represents success to you?
- What do you think needs to be improved in your industry and why?
- Describe your attributes in no more than five words.
Rule number three. Entries close Monday 6th March (or Monday 13th March for those late to the party).
There are also a total of 10 categories have been decided on for the awards, with three winners to be announced for each. In case you missed them, here they are:
