Nominations open for fourth edition of IMPACT's 'Top 30 under 30' list

IMPACT magazine’s ‘Top 30 Under 30’ property – that aims to identify and celebrate future leaders of Indian creative, media and digital agencies – enters its fourth year with the opening of nominations for the Top 30 Under 30 2016 list. 

We are on the lookout for young, ambitious and talented girls and boys who are the soul of this industry. As companies increasingly entrust young employees with more responsibility and leadership roles, we look for those young guns who have impressed their peers, seniors and clients they deal with, through their work.

The concept is to create a list of top 30 talented individuals under the age of 30 who have made it big in the advertising, media and digital agencies. The selection process involves an initial screening of entries at an editorial level, followed by a jury appraisal. The jury comprises industry leaders who judge the nominated profiles on various parameters such as work done so far, creativity, leadership ability and recognition by peers. Like every year, a jury of the industry’s top-ranking experts will come together this year too to chalk out the Top 30 Under 30 2016 list.

The first edition of IMPACT’s ‘Top 30 under 30’ was unveiled at a glitzy event in Mumbai in 2013 where Arnab Goswami, then Editor-in-Chief, Times Now, was the guest of honour. Following a thrilling first year, IMPACT closed on over 200 entries the following year, and since then, the number of entries has been steadily on the rise. Raj Nayak, CEO of Colors, who has headed the jury for the Top 30 Under 30 list for three years, says, “The point of IMPACT’s Top 30 Under 30 is not to rank the best, but inspire young talent. Through this list, we hope many more youngsters representing several agencies will be inspired to achieve more in the future.”

Nominations do not have an entry cost, and people are free to nominate bright colleagues or peers or even themselves. The last date for submission of nominations is December 20, 2016. Nominations can be made by clicking on the following link:
