Strong response to PRmoment India’s 30 under 30 list

A big thank you to all those who have applied for the PRmoment India 30 under 30 list! We received an overwhelming 156 entries from various organisations across India. There are entries every leading PR agency in India. As compared to last year, we have also received several entries from corporate communication teams in India, including Viacom 18, Vistara, Taj Palace, Mahindra and Mahindra and Mondelez.

Now the hard work of bringing this list of talented young people to 30 begins. The jury will go through the entries to pre-score and arrive at a short list from which the final 30 will be selected. Each applicant will be judged by three jury members to ensure objectivity.

The final results will be announced on PRmoment India in the first week of March.

What winners will receive

The winners will be profiled on PRmoment and will receive an e-certificate to share on social media. The sponsor for 30 under 30 is Adfactors PR. Selected winners from the 2015 and 2016 edition will also be invited to speak at our upcoming conference , “The race for Digital Integration” on the 21st of April in Delhi.
