Celebrating the next generation of bright young talent in the PR industry!

EXTRAORDINARY. INSPIRING. EXCEPTIONAL

Welcome to the PRWeek 30 under 30 awards!


PR professionals aged under 30 can be nominated for inclusion in the prestigious list.


The awards recognise high-performing professionals  from agency and in-house roles across the industry, with the greatest potential to become leaders of the future – and those who have achieved greatness already.

Nominations will be judged by an esteemed panel of independent judges from diverse parts of the industry. Successful entrants will get pride of place in a very special feature in PRWeek and will be invited to judge next year's PRWeek Awards.


In our continued effort to champion those new to the industry, we have two specialised Newcomer categories for those who have been in full-time employment in comms roles for no more than three years.


We look forward to celebrating the next generation of bright young talent in the PR industry!
