Congratulations to our 2018 Awardees


The judges have decided! Meet our 36 winners of the 2018 BBM Youth Support Awards.

The awards juries recognised 36 outstanding young professionals across ten industry categories. All winners demonstrate excellence in their skills as well as ambition and leadership in their chosen field.

Our 36 BBM Youth Support Awardees from Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria will each receive up to $8,000 to travel overseas. They will be given the opportunity to work, study and grow both professionally and personally through international work experience.

The BBM judging panel recognises the winners as extraordinary young professionals who demonstrate not only excellence in their skills but also ambition, industry leadership potential and a keen interest in giving back to their community and profession.

This commitment is key to becoming a BBM Awardee as we need to reach beyond producing skilled professionals to creating leaders and mentors for those young Australian’s who follow in their footsteps.

We are thrilled with the talent and skills of our awardees and cannot wait to see them embark on their journeys.
