You have until October 21 to nominate an exceptional individual to the definitive list of young talent to watch in Asia-Pacific.

40 Under 40 2019: Nominations are now open

Scroll down to find a link to the entry form. Please enter before the deadline of October 21, 2019 @18:00 SIN/HKT. 

We are delighted to open nominations for our annual 40 Under 40 list, which showcases the best young talent in the Asia-Pacific marcomms industry. 

Every year we are consistently impressed by the achievements we get to hear about through the nomination process. The men and women who make the list stand out for so many different reasons: last year's 40 Under 40 included business leaders of fast-growing companies, creative directors creating groundbreaking work, strategists pushing the agenda on consumer research and founders of exciting digital agencies, plus a host of talented marketing managers, data engineers, communications executives and more. 

Think of that person about whom you've always thought: "Wow, they've really done a lot for their age"; tell us about their background and their achievements and, if we agree they're a standout, see them honoured with a place on Campaign's highly influential list.

The winning nominees will have their photographs and profiles featured in Campaign Asia-Pacific in November. [Please note: the full list of winners will be available only to premium members of Campaign. Your entry fee includes a one-year membership that can be used by the entrant or gifted to a person in her/his company.]

SELECTION CRITERIA 

You may put forward up to two candidates from your own regional agency network or company who are under the age of 40, with an explanation as to why they stand out. (To be clear, this means up to two people per agency brand per country; and they must be aged 39 or under up to but not including 1 October 2018). 

These people must be based in Asia-Pacific and must be holding a job or in an industry directly related to advertising and marketing.

While we will consider candidates from other Campaign Asia-Pacific listings, such as Women to Watch, Digital A-List and Media A-List, we do ask that candidates wait until 2020 if she/he have already been featured in any of these lists within the last 12 months. If, however, the candidate will no longer meet the age requirements in a year’s time we will consider his/her application this year.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

  • One completely filled nomination form per candidate
  • A high-resolution image of each nominee of at least 300dpi and a minimum of 6” across at the widest point (A good rule of thumb is that a JPEG image should be at least 5MB and a PNG image around 8MB). This can be attached to the form or emailed to 40under40@haymarket.asia
  • An entry fee of US$380 per candidate. This includes the entry fee and a one year membership with Campaign Asia-Pacific, which can be used by the entrant or gifted to a person within the same company. Find more details about the benefits of membership here and please direct any questions to membership@campaignasia.com. On completion of the form you will be redirected to a secure payment page and our membership manager will follow up with you to arrange the membership. 
  • Deadline for entry: October 21, 2019 @ 18:00 SIN/HKT
  • Late deadline for entry ($400): October 28, 2019 @ 18:00 SIN/HKT
  • Please send enquiries and high-res images to 40under40@haymarket.asia
