We spoke to four of the previous winners (2016 and 2015) to hear why talented young professionals in the industry should enter.
“It's an honour to be recognised for the work you're doing. And the Rising Star event in 2016 (where he presented) was an opportunity to make some great connections within our industry, which, as we know from the list of Rising Stars, is a truly global one,” says Breton.
“The FIPP conference (that winners get to attend) is a highlight on many industry professionals’ calendars. For a twenty-something person to have the opportunity to learn from some of the best minds in the field with years of experience, is a really big privilege. You will also meet people who are great at what they do and really friendly and interesting on top of that. The networking opportunities and chance to meet people from all over the world with a shared love of journalism is fantastic,” says Mieke.
“FIPP is an incredible organisation with a network filled of our industry’s leading minds. Entering to win instantly gives you the chance to get out there and meet some remarkable people who have tremendous energy and great ideas. You might meet fabulous people every single day, but this is an experience unlike any other I have had so far in my career, both networking and educational perspectives! Go for it,” says Laura.
Matthew Stepanic is founding editor and publisher of Glass Buffalo as well as editor at Tanner Young Publishing Group. He was a winner in 2015.
“It’ll help you understand your value in your team and the industry. As the publisher of a small literary magazine, I did not believe our minor successes would translate to the people who run much larger and more diverse media corporations. Winning this award has highlighted again the value in my magazine and how it serves its community and readers,” says Matthew.
Launched in 2015, FIPP and UPM’s Rising Stars in Global Media Awards celebrate exceptional young talent within the international media industry, in any discipline.

A few years ago at the Digital Innovators’ Summit, everyone was talking about free content and advertising, with the rising use of ad blockers in the forefront of everyone’s minds. This year, however, the strongest takeaway was that publishers are no longer in defence mode: with most now employing a paywall or subscription model, it’s been proven beyond doubt that people will pay for quality content. So now that publishers have a bit of breathing room, another question arises: what should they do to stand out from the crowd?24th Apr 2018 Features
