Who are the most talented young PROs? PRWeek reveals this year's '29 under 29'

Today, PRWeek has revealed its '29 under 29', its selection of the brightest and best young talent in the UK PR industry this year.

The young PR professionals who made the list have demonstrated excellence across a range of comms activity, maturity beyond their years and made a tangible difference to their colleagues and clients.

The hunt began in August, when consultancies and inhouse teams were invited to nominate up and coming talent. Candidates had to be under 29 on 1 October. PRWeek received nearly 100 submissions from all corners of the industry.

These were then passed to the judges: Prudential’s director of group public affairs and policy Miles Celic, Ogilvy UK MD Michael Frohlich, Professor Anne Gregory, director of the Centre for Public Relations Studies at Leeds Metropolitan University, and former '29 under 29er' Katherine Solomon, PR manager, Sky Arts.

If these individuals are the future of the PR industry, then it looks bright.
