Drapers Comment: Have you got your 30 under 30 nomination in yet?

If you haven’t, there is still time. We are extending the deadline for the rest of this week.

The new deadline for nominations is 9.30am next Monday, October 26. Nominating couldn’t be simpler. Here is what you need to know.

You need to be aged 30 or under on January 9 next year when this special is published and with a proven track record in the roles you have held. You can come from a number of disciplines, including buying, merchandising, design, technical roles including pattern cutting, grading or garment tech, in retail/store operations, sales, marketing, or in a digital capacity including content, or be an entrepreneur, among others. If you’re not sure if you, or the person that you want to nominate is eligible, then just get in touch to ask.

To enter we will need you to email us the following:

Self-nominations - Full name, job title, the name of the company you work for, your age and D.O.B, your CV, an endorsement from your line manager or HR, and 200 words on why you should be included. Please also provide your phone number.

Company nominations – If you are nominating someone in your company, an employee, line report or colleague, then we will need to know their full name, job title, age and D.O.B, a list of previous positions and experience held and 200 words on why they should be included. We will also need their contact details.

Third-party nominations – If you would like to nominate someone you used to work with, or someone within another company that you deal with and feel merits being included, we will need their full name, job title, the name of the company they work for, their age and D.O.B, and 200 words on why they should be chosen. Please include information on their experience, and we will also need their contact details. Finally, we will seek the nominees’ employer’s approval.  

Those chosen will be profiled within our January 9 issue (you will be contacted in November and we will arrange a group photo shoot in December), and be invited to an exclusive 30 under 30 celebration dinner in January. The 30 will also be invited to our annual Next Generation day-long event in April, where inspirational speakers from the industry will talk about their careers.

Please send all nominations to me at

Successful applicants will be contacted in November. Good luck!
