The media industry’s youngest high achievers packed the Art Gallery of NSW last night for the presentation of B&T magazine’s 30 Under 30 awards.

Almost 400 young media workers turned up to see the winners announced.

This year was the first time the Grand Prix prize for Most Influential was awarded, going to Kate Gamble, from Resolution Media.

Tanya Moore, from Conn3cted, took out the People’s Choice award, which saw more than 1700 votes cast.

The 30 Under 30 was sponsored this year by The Newspaper Works. The organisation’s chairman Michael Miller gave the opening address.

He argued that being an ‘influencer’ was not about popularity or personal gain.

“Influence is about providing engagement with an audience, influence is about detail and comprehension, influence is about connecting emotionally and rationally with people, and influence is about retaining the meaning of a message,” Mr Miller said.

“Events like the 30 Under 30 are important in identifying, developing and inspiring Australia’s future media, marketing and communications influencers … an investment in these awards is an investment in the future of our industry,” he said.

There were 30 winners in six categories, not including the Grand Prix and People’s Choice winners. See the list below, and a full gallery of B&T’s photographs here.
