Rising Stars in Media

FIPP’s Rising Stars in Media is a new initiative that seeks to recognise exceptional young talent within the international magazine media industry, across any discipline.

Rising StarsMillennials are shaping the future. Unlike any previous generation – they have unparalleled entrepreneurial skills that sets them apart in this fast-paced digital-first world. They understand the best of the old world and the best of the new and are happily blending them together. They are the first generation to come of age in a truly global world, and the first to come of age in the new digital era. Their knowledge and understanding of how to use digital and social tools, makes them a group not to be ignored.

With this in mind, FIPP wants to celebrate the achievements with the Rising Stars in Media initiative.

FIPP wants to discover and recognise those individuals under the age of 30 in media companies across the globe that are demonstrating outstanding talent and developing remarkable initiatives.

From this, FIPP will create a ‘Rising Stars’ list and share their initiatives, success stories and of course their profiles with the global magazine media community.

The FIPP Rising Stars in Media list will be released in September and the top three exceptional rising stars will be invited to present at the prestigious FIPP World Congress in Toronto, Canada, 13-15 October 2015 where they will be given an award.
