The project, which aims to highlight the hottest young talent in the commercial media sector, is being sponsored by The Mail on Sunday, which itself is celebrating its 30th year.

This year's 30 Under 30 entrants are being asked to submit a short video alongside their written entry, showcasing why they are one of the best young talents in the industry.

A team of industry judges that includes Marcus Rich, managing director at The Mail on Sunday; David Wilding, planning director at PHD; Tom Dunn, digital strategy director at Maxus; Karen Stacey, broadcast sales director for Bauer Media; Clare Rush, joint head of investment at MEC, and Media Week editor Jeremy King, will be heading to The Mail on Sunday offices to decide who makes the coveted 30.

There are just two weeks left to enter and entrants must submit a short video (in a mov.file) that answers the criteria and the two questions posed by The Mail on Sunday (listed below). It must be backed up by a piece of writing of no more than 400 words, which explains why they deserve to be part of the 30 Under 30. A high-resolution head-and-shoulders picture of the applicant must also be included.

The 400 words should be shaped around the following factors:

  • Greatest achievement in the media arena
  • An example of problem solving for one of their clients
  • What they hope to achieve in their jobs by the end of the year
  • What contribution they have made to the media industry

The two questions from The Mail on Sunday are:

  • Which of the celebrity columnists in The Mail on Sunday's Live magazine is your favourite, and why?
  • Research has proved that 9.58am is the time that we are happiest on a Sunday. When is your happiest time on a Sunday, and why?

Entries and videos need to be sent to media.week@haymarket.com by Friday 8 June.
