Surprise! Entries for the Radio Today 30 Under 30 Awards are open

Staff Writer

It’s back! The Radio Today 30 Under 30 Awards return in 2021 to champion the next generation of young professionals working in the audio industry.

The awards offer an opportunity for future leaders to showcase their achievements and propel their careers forward, on top of recognising their excellence and dedication to the medium.

The awards return following their debut in 2020, where 50 future leaders from across the sector were shortlisted ahead of the reveal of the Class of 2020 last November.

The hunt to unearth Australia’s youngest and brightest minds in the audio industry has officially begun again today, with entries for the 2021 Radio Today 30 Under 30 Awards now open.

The awards will champion those who can demonstrate a genuine contribution to the audio industry via their current employer or, if self-employed, their business.

Radio Today editor and content director, Vivienne Kelly, said topping last year’s incredible list would be no mean feat, but she can’t wait to see what the industry’s best and brightest put forward.

“Last year’s 30 Under 30 competition was such a closely fought contest, with so many incredible young audio lovers putting their names forward. It was also really fun to see the momentum behind the People’s Choice Award – which even nabbed 2GB’s Ray Hadley as a campaigner,” she said.

“It’s really pleasing to bring this initiative back with support from across the board, so I’m looking forward to seeing who emerges victorious this time around.”

To enter, visit the Take 2 Media awards platform and start your submission (you can start it now, and finish it later). Entries officially close on August 29 at 11:59pm AEST, 2021

The 2021 Radio Today 30 Under 30 Awards with SCA are supported by Australian Film Television and Radio School, Australian Radio Network, Grant Broadcasters, Nine, NOVA Entertainment and Sony Music Australia.

Above all, Radio Today is searching for fresh voices with a clear vision for the future of the audio industry and the challenges it faces in the decade ahead.
