There are just a couple of days left for you, or your colleagues, to enter the FIPP Rising Stars in Media 2016, as submissions will only be received only until the end of the day on Thursday 10 March.
The aim of the Awards is to discover and recognise millennials in media companies who are behind developing remarkable initiatives for the industry, their companies and/or brands (see more about who can enter, as well as how to).
Unlike other awards, FIPP’s Rising Stars in Media is not about finding the best in class in any particular discipline. We want to uncover those bright stars that are coming up with new ideas, or who have proved to deliver above and beyond what was expected.
Attend FIPP London on us
The top three winners will be flown to the UK, thanks to our partners UPM, and will have free passes to FIPPLondon – four events in one - to give them a unique opportunity to experience an event that they wouldn’t normally attend; giving them broader exposure to what is happening in the industry internationally.
FIPP will also create the Rising Stars in Media List, which will be a chance for the top submissions and individuals to be showcased to the international community.
Download the Entry Form now – submit it by 10 March We have kept it really simple - all you have to do is download and complete the write-in entry form and submit it, with supporting documents and a photo, by email to Christine and Jenny.

How to develop your chatbot strategy
If you have Alexa, Amazon’s intelligent personal assistant, then you probably start your morning with a conversation with a chatbot. Because let’s admit it: chatbots are already everywhere. On the one hand, we love to hate them because they are, well, not human. On the other, we love to love them because they create an interactive and personalised experience. Brands have been quick to adopt this technology. Too many media companies lag behind experimenting in this field.
