30 Under 30

Who can enter?

Any individual who has been working in the UK radio [including Online/Internet Radio & In Store Radio] or UK based audio business [including indie production, imaging, podcast and streaming services etc] for 12 months and will be under 30 on the date that we announce the winners.

Do I nominate myself?

Yes, you can put yourself forward. Just make sure that your registration as a member of the Radio Academy is up to date.

Can I nominate someone else?

Yes, please do and/or you can ask someone to nominate you.

Do I and the person I’m nominating need to be a member of the Academy?

Yes. The nominator and the nominee, both need to be current registered members of The Radio Academy. Please for all membership queries.

Can I still enter if I'm a volunteer, freelance or work unpaid?

The simple answer is yes. We only ask that you give us the name and contact details of your line manager/project manager (or equivalent) so we can verify what you've told us.

What do I do next?

Ok so, all you have to do is email to register your interest and we can advise you from there and send you the relevant forms.

Can I still enter if I've been included in a previous year's final 30?

Absolutely - as long as you still meet all the entry criteria: within the stated age guidelines, still working in radio/audio, etc. The main difference that you should highlight this time is what you've done since you made the 30 last time. If it was last year, tell us what you've done in the last 12 months to merit being one of the 30 for a second time.
