30 Under 30

What is 30 Under 30?

Proudly sponsored by ReelWorld, 30 Under 30 is Radio Academy's annual search for the Audio and Radio industry's 30 rising stars, and brightest young talents. 30 Under 30 is open to individuals working in the UK audio and radio industry and is an opportunity to demonstrate the achievements and impact an individual has had in the world around them.

Applicants have to submit a written entry, and must be aged under 30 on 30th June 2019. A panel of industry experts will decide on the top 30, who will be announced in September. Last year's alumni came from a wide range of organisations and can be seen here.

 We get a huge buzz from celebrating bright young radio and audio talent who are shaping the future of our industry, that’s why it’s an honour for ReelWorld to be supporting the 30 Under 30 initiative for a 6th year. 


UK radio has changed beyond recognition during those six years but the power of sound to engage audiences only grows stronger.


It’s great to see radio talent leading the revolution as more and more people re-connect with audio. Those on 2019’s 30 under 30 list will be at the forefront of that revolution.

There’s a thrilling optimism around audio right now and it’s exciting for ReelWorld to play a part in crafting the sound of the UK’s biggest radio brands and supporting the future of our industry.
