All The Winners From The B&T 30 Under 30 Awards!

All The Winners From The B&T 30 Under 30 Awards!

After some delectable canapes, a glass or two of champagne and many nervous butterflies in tummies from those shortlisted, we can reveal the incredible winners from the B&T 30 Under 30 Awards for 2016!

Gemma Anderson from Deakin University took out the coveted Grand Prix award, for her genius work at the Victorian uni. Having worked both marketing side and agency side, Anderson said it’s great to see the client-side being recognised.

“It’s a bit of a shock but I’m feeling pretty good,” she said. And given it’s her first time entering the awards, you’d be hard pressed to get better result.

“The awards are something I’ve always aspired to have on my resume,” she added.

“I think it’s something that a lot of people do. I’ve seen a lot of people that who are highly respected in the industry who’ve been shortlisted and awarded, so it’s always something that when I felt I had enough in my portfolio I would be ready to submit for.

“So this is the year I decided to have a go and submit so this is fantastic.”

And after a tumultuous voting in People’s Choice which resulted in much toing and froing, Joel Chapman from Give Art Science came out on top to take the crown.

We’d like to extend a huge thank you to all our wonderful sponsors and judges for making the event possible, and congratulations to all the winners and finalists.
