PRWeek UK launches search for 30 Under 30 2021

PRWeek UK has launched its annual 30 Under 30 project to showcase young stars of PR.

Click here for the 30 Under 30 submission form and to access more details about the scheme.

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 asked to complete a short Q&A about themselves and provide a photograph for a special feature in the May edition of PRWeek.

Like last year, PRWeek has again included a separate 30 Under 30 Newcomer category to recognise true newcomers to the sector. This is for under-30s 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.

We are also recognising the best 30 Under 30 employers. Any employer with three or more entrants in 30 Under 30 will automatically receive a 30 Under 30: Star Employer Award.

As with previous years, successful candidates can also enter the Young PR Professionals category at the PRWeek UK Awards at no extra cost.

A judging panel of industry experts will decide who makes the cut.

The cost of entry to 30 Under 30 is £315+VAT. For the Newcomer category, the cost is £160+VAT.


Entry is open to any UK-based PR or public affairs professional aged under 30 on 20 May 2021, working either in-house or agency-side.

The online application form must be completed by a nominator (usually a line manager or similar, or a client); entries from nominees will not be accepted.

To enter, click here.

The reduced-price early bird deadline is Thursday 25 February, with a final deadline (subject to a late fee) of Thursday 11 March.
