PRWeek UK has launched its search for the brightest young stars of UK PR in 2017, who will be recognised in this year's 30 Under 30.

From today, PR professionals aged under 30 can be nominated for inclusion in the prestigious list, which recognises those with the greatest potential to become industry leaders of the future – and those who have achieved greatness already.

Successful applicants will be photographed and interviewed for a special feature in the July edition of PRWeek UK. The photography will take place at the London office of Hanover Communications, with a drinks reception and networking event afterwards.
