FIPP will open entries for Rising Stars in Media 2016 in January. It’s not too early to think about who from your company should be nominated.
Earlier this year FIPP launched the Rising Stars in Media initiative and last month at FIPP’s World Congress in Toronto, Canada, FIPP invited the top three to attend its prestigious event, to give them a glimpse of what is discussed and debated amongst the industry.
They were also selected to speak on a panel, where they shared with the 700+ delegates their visions for the future, what they see changing next for the industry and told us how they all still have a love for printed magazines. Watch their video about their experience of the Rising Star process and their thoughts of being at an event they wouldn’t normally attend.
