Triple J’s Ben and Liam to host Mumbrella neXt Awards

Triple J’s breakfast duo Liam Stapleton and Ben Harvey – commonly known as ‘Ben and Liam’ – will host the Mumbrella neXt Awards in Sydney on December 10.

The breakfast radio duo, who were awarded radio hosts of the year at the 2018 Industry Observer Awards and were winners at the Adelaide Comedy Festival 2017 Awards, will present the 13 awards to exceptional new talent in the media and marketing industry.

Eligibility for Mumbrella’s neXt Awards is determined by how long someone has been in the industry, rather than their age. The awards are open to anyone with 10 years or less experience since their first paid position in the media and marketing industry.

The awards include categories across PR, creative, commercial, content, marketing, media and more.

This year there are three new categories – community manager, video producer and content marketer, as well as an expansion of the agency talent of the year categories.

Many of the judges of the Mumbrella neXt Awards who are senior industry leaders will also attend the awards ceremony to hand out the awards.

To enter, entrants are required to curate a simple, self-shot video (production values are not part of the scoring) accompanied by testimonials and a 500 word statement.

First entry award deadline is midnight on September 20. Tickets and more information can be found via this link.

Plus, for the first time Mumbrella will be running a half-day conference prior to the awards ceremony.

Held at The Chauvel Cinema in Paddington, CHE Proximity’s CEO Chris Howatson, TBWA and Eleven PR’s Russ Tucker, and Scarlett Strategic Solutions’ Janey Francis are set to take the stage to tackle pressing topics critical to the development of those with less than five years experience in the industry.
