Alongside the usual 30 Under 30 list, this year, PR professionals could also be nominated for the Newcomer accolade.
It 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. Next month PRWeek will be profiling those on the Newcomer list and asking about themselves and their views of important industry issues - stayed tuned for that coverage.
Thanks to this year's 30 Under 30 judges for their huge efforts: George Blizzard, co-founder and co-CEO, The PR Network; Amy Holland, director of comms, media and DTC - EMEA, The Walt Disney Company; Indigo Le Fèvre, associate director, The Romans, and 30 Under 30 member, 2020; Doyel Maitra, group comms director, Hachette; Sarah Scales, co-founder, Brands2Life; Misha Talheth-Fell, associate director, Porter Novelli, and 30 Under 30 member, 2020; Gary Wheeldon, co-founder, Talker Tailor Trouble Maker.
The five 30 Under 30: Newcomer winners for 2021, listed alphabetically, are:
Cora Bolger, senior account executive, Syneos Health Communications
