The Godrej PRmoment India Adfactors 3030 awards for 2020 is open for entries

2020 marks not just a new year, but the start of a brand new decade. With reputation becoming increasingly central to a brand's success, communicators have never mattered more to a business.

With that in mind PRmoment India is very pleased to open the call for entries for the Godrej PRmoment Adfactors 3030 for the year 2020! In its sixth edition now, the PRmoment India 3030 is the defining list that honours young PR talent in India.

Sujit Patil, the jury co-chair for 3030 and vice president and head, corporate brand and communications, Godrej, said that "As the years pass by, the crop of 30 under 30 are evolving significantly and recent conversations with a few of them have been really gratifying. Our endeavour this year too shall be to pick those names who have demonstrated great impact for their brands through innovative practices and are preparing themselves for the next phase of the communications industry that is predominantly driven by digital, data, and contemporary technologies. He further added that “ My favourite, “PR for PR” section has now been evolved into the, “Why PR will matter more in the next decade” section. This question aims at bringing out your bullishness towards the profession and vision for yourselves and the PR industry. May the most wholesome professional win!”

Arwa Husain, director – financial services Adfactors PR and jury co-chair for 3030 said that "India has some of the most vibrant young talent across the PR business globally. What they require in a continuously disrupting world are the opportunities to develop new skills to face the future and recognition for their ingenuity and perseverance. Platforms such as 3030 bring the much-deserved attention to the stellar work done by our young leaders. The jury and I are looking forward to going through the disruptive work being undertaken.”

The 2020 edition of 3030 will feature an annual alumni meet-up with the jury in Delhi or Mumbai and the launch of a mentoring programme run by former 3030 winners for the current winners and devised with the support of the jury. Participation in this will be completely voluntary.
