Winners Revealed For B&T’s 30 Under 30 Awards 2018!

The industry’s best and brightest young talent have been just been honoured and celebrated in Sydney at this year’s 30 Under 30 Awards.

Over 450 people flocked to the SMC Conference & Function Centre on Thursday night to recognise the top industry performers under 30 years of age, with media personality James Mathison once again the MC.

A total of 32 awards were handed out on the night across 12 categories, with NITV’s Ella Archibald-Binge taking home the Grand Prix gong, and Simzek’s Manmeet Bindra named the People’s Choice winner.

Congratulations to all those who triumphed on the night, as well as those who were shortlisted.
