30 Under 30 is the Radio Academy's annual search for the brightest young talent from across the radio and audio industry, which is proudly sponsored by ReelWorld.

To celebrate the launch of 2017's 30Under30, the Radio Academy threw another amazing party - this time at the British Library - which coincided with the #RadFest17 after party on the 21st of June, 2017

We were also joined by several of our judges, including Chris North and Anthony Gay, MD of ReelWorld, who talked about the importance of fostering young talent and the tremendous value of the competition.

Also in attendance were 2016's 30under30 Alumni, who talked about how winning the competition has influence their careers, and gave some tips and tricks to this year's hopefuls in the audience.

Taking place within the after party of 2017's Radio Festival, there were plenty of big industry figures also in attendance to network with, including Director General of the BBC, Tony Hall.
