FIPP & UPM’s Rising Stars in Media seeks to recognise exceptional young talent within the international media industry, across any discipline.
The Rising Stars in Media Awards reward young, talented individuals who have produced outstanding work within the industry and have delivered above and beyond expectations.
Following what judges described as the most competitive year since FIPP and UPM’s Rising Stars Awards started in 2015, the 2018 Rising Stars winners were announced on 12 December at the FIPP Insider event in London. In addition, three companies were awarded for the high standard of their entries this year.
