thirty under 30 1200x752

If you’re part of the new breed of entertainment professionals changing the music industry for the better, then you need to get yourself nominated for The Music Network’s prestigious Thirty Under 30 Awards. The Music Network is the Australian music industry bible. It’s the publication that industry professionals read every day to keep up with the latest news and insights. Every year, TMN runs their Thirty Under 30 awards to recognise the most promising up-and-coming executives.

It’s a great way to get yourself noticed by the industry, and to start amplifying your profile and your connections.

This year TMN is changing things up by appointing an all-female judging panel that includes new ARIA boss Annabelle Herd, Rolling Stone Editor Poppy Reid, band managers like Cath Harridy and respected senior executives like Millie Millgate, Anna Fitzgerald, Beth Appleton and Irene Hulme.

Not only that – the special event to announce the award winners will be hosted at AIM’s Sydney campus on May 25.

Last year we had two alumni listed in the 30 – Brienna Webster who now works at Sony Music, and Rachael Tulloch who works at UNIFIED Music Group. This year’s nominees also include some AIM alumni including Universal’s Mark Dadic.

If you studied at AIM and you’re currently working in the industry, it’s not too late to apply – but you’ll have to hurry. Entries close at midnight on April 18 and can be accessed via this link.
