40 Under 40: Deadline extended (one last time)

Update: Due to a last-minute surge in nominations, we have extended the deadline to this Thursday, 20 September, at 18:00 HK/SG. Given the publishing schedule, this will be the final extension.

Campaign Asia-Pacific has announced an extension of the deadline for entry to this year's 40 Under 40, the annual flagship list that celebrates the best young talents who are helping to drive the Asian marcomms industry forward and are developing truly effective work for their companies. Entries will now be accepted up to the cut-off time of 18:00 HK/SG on Monday September 17 Thursday September 20.

This year's entry fee includes a one-year membership that can be used by the entrant or gifted to a person in their company. Winners' profiles will be featured across Campaign Asia-Pacific's platforms in October*.

Here are a few highlights of last year's winning candidates who have achieved great things since being named 40 Under 40:

Ana Ysabel Ongpin, Managing Director of Campaigns & Grey Public Relations:

I feel very honored to be part of the 40 under 40 list and be recognized as someone who's done significant and notable work not just for my clients but also for the PR industry. It helped create awareness on the kind of work we do and how we are able to effect change through the relationship we help build between our clients and their stakeholders.

Scott Player, CEO, APD Group:

It was a privilege to be nominated and recognised in the 2017 40 under 40. If you know someone who’s had a positive impact on our industry, I highly recommend taking the time to nominate them. It’s a great program and helps promote, engage and recognise high performing talent across the region.

Thapas Joseph, President, Fountainhead Digital MKTG:

It felt great to be recognised across APAC & ANZ. While there are other lists like this in local and regional media, none had the credibility and profile quality that Campaign had. The 40 Under 40 list is a good reckoner for where one stands in the industry. And for mid management, it can make a huge difference to career growth.
