The judging panel - which includes Tim Jones, HR director of Aegis Media and last year's overall Rising Star of the Year Harry Dewhirst - are looking for the 30 most talented young professionals working in commercial media.
The winners will be selected based on criteria including project leadership, new business wins, commitment to the media industry and people skills.
The 30 winners will automatically form the longlist for the overall Rising Star of the Year accolade at this year's Media Week Awards on 28 October.
The competition is open to agencies, media owners and clients, but entrants must be under 30 on Monday 26 July, when the 30 winners will be announced.
Please email completed entries to Media Week editor Harriet Dennys at firstname.lastname@example.org, keeping submissions to one side of A4 only.
