Campaign has unveiled the Media Week 30 Under 30 2021 in partnership with Hearst, with the judges praising the entrants for their resilience and optimism after a year of the pandemic.

As in recent years, women dominated the winners’ list, which comprised 21 women and nine men, out of 144 entries from brands, agencies, media owners and start-ups.
