Who Should be Included in the Next ‘Thirty Under 30’?
Following on from the success of last year’s ‘Thirty Under 30‘, Stationery Matters Magazine is once again on the lookout for a new group of dynamic stationery designers.
Thirty Under 30 helps to recognise and promote the UK stationery industry by highlighting up and coming designers. The first outing proved to be extremely popular in 2017 and now the competition is seeking the next batch of young stationery stars.
How it Works
The debut Thirty Under 30 Awards in 2017 saw a hand-picked panel of industry judges choose the 30 most promising and enterprising young people from a huge number of entries.
The Class of 2017 showcased a huge variety of industry roles, covering sales, marketing, product development, design and more.
As with its first outing, the 2018 competition aims to identify and acknowledge the important contribution young professionals make to the stationery industry.
For the winners, the competition can help propel them further in their careers. Last year’s competition has already opened doors and offered exciting new professional opportunities for the Class of 2017. Sidonie Warren, the founder of Papersmiths, designer Nikki Strange and Daniel Mark Carr, global senior brand manager at ColArt, were asked to judge this year’s LaunchPad London competition at the London Stationery Show.
The 2018 Competition
The 2018 competition is open to individuals aged 30 or younger and already making an impact in their stationery career. Nominate yourself, ask someone to submit your name, or put forward others; it’s up to you!
As with the debut competition, the 2018 panel of judges will assess entries to discover people who can demonstrate drive, maturity in understanding the wider industry, and a passion for their role.
The winners will feature in a Special Focus in the Autumn/Winter issue of Stationery Matters and in a special display area at the Stationery Show Manchester in October.

2018’s Thirty Under 30 competition is open now and closes for entries on 31st July 2018.
