FIPP’s Rising Stars in Media 2017

FIPP’s Rising Stars in Media seeks to recognise exceptional young talent within the international media industry, across any discipline.

In 2017, we will want to discover those individuals in companies across the globe that are demonstrating outstanding talent and developing remarkable initiatives. 

If you are someone who has made an impact on your business within the last 12 months (or if you have a rising star in your team), acknowledge these achievements and let the world celebrate your (their) excellence. Entry is FREE.

From the entries, FIPP creates the Rising Stars in Media List and will share those initiatives and success stories with the global media industry. The List is to identify rising talent and is not intended as a true 'beginner's award', but instead recognises those who work in the industry who have proved to deliver above and beyond what's expected. 

FIPP’s Rising Stars in Media List will be released in September. The top three rising star winners will be invited to speak on a panel at the FIPP World Congress in London, UK, 9-11 October - and be presented with their award.
