Impact returns with 3rd edition of 'Top 30 Under 30'

Impact magazine’s ‘Top 30 Under 30’ is back for its third edition, with the aim of identifying and celebrating future leaders of the Indian communication industry from creative and media agencies. It’s a great time to be young, ambitious and talented. Companies are increasingly awarding young employees with more responsibilities and leadership roles. We, like them are hunting for that youthful spark. We are looking for those young guns who have made a mark on their seniors and clients they deal with, through their work.

The first edition of ‘Top 30 under 30’ was unveiled by Impact magazine at a glitzy event in Mumbai in 2013 where Arnab Goswami, Editor-in-Chief, Times Now, was the guest of honour. Following a thrilling first year, Impact closed on over 200 entries last year (2013 saw 148 entries). Raj Nayak, CEO of Colors, who headed the jury that picked the Top 30 Under 30, said, “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 participate in the future.”

The concept is to create a list of top 30 talented individuals from the advertising and communications industry who are under the age of 30 and have made it big. The process involves an initial screening of entries at an editorial level, followed by a jury comprising of industry leaders, who judge the profiles and entries on various parameters. Like last year, a jury of the industry’s biggest experts will be coming together this year too to chalk out the ‘Top 30 Under 30’ list.
