The 30 Under 30: Newcomer award is for professionals aged under 30 who have been in full-time employment in comms roles for no more than two years, but have already shown signs of a promising career ahead.

Thanks to our judges in the Newcomer category: Tobi Ruth Adebekun, communications, international, Snap Inc; Carolan Davidge, executive director, marketing and engagement, British Heart Foundation; and Emma Gorton, senior director, Hanover.
