And the 2017 winners are…

What the judges said…

"This talent search is inspiring because we get to find out about so many new, bright, smart, enthusiastic people who are choosing to work in media and have already achieved so much at a relatively young age. That so many women stood out for a second year in a row in the Media Week 30 Under 30 suggests the senior leadership of this industry is going to look very different in the future." Gideon Spanier, head of media, Campaign

"At Shortlist media our purpose is to create content the Met Set are proud to enjoy. For the Met Set we know that the age of 30 is the biggest milestone of all. Partnering Thirty under 30 gives us an opportunity to help the rising stars of our media industry achieve their career goals with the help of this accolade. As a judge I felt very privileged to sit with my peers and seek out the future leaders of the industry." Sophie Robinson, chief marketing officer, Shortlist Media

“The calibre of talent was impressive as was the desire to create powerful and meaningful change. I left feeling safe in the knowledge that the future of our industry is in good hands." Tim Pearson, chief executive of Manning Gottlieb OMD

"The varied and diverse talent coming through all parts of the industry is both inspiring and reassuring for the future." Davina Barker, sales director of Digital Cinema Media
