Rife’s 30 under 30 list is back! Nominate someone incredible now!

Our annual 30 under 30 list of outstanding and influential people is back and nominations are officially open!

Why 30 under 30? 

Since 2014, we at Rife have shared and celebrated the achievements of people under the age of 24 in Bristol with an annual list of 24 exceptional talents. In 2020 we switched it up to recognise and include a greater range of people. Not only that, we extended the geographical area we want to represent, from Bristol only, to the rest of the West of England too. Rife’s impact is stretching further than ever and we want to reflect that.

Whoever you think is amazing, we want to hear about them.

Here are the categories we want to hear about most: art, activism, sport, photography, politics, tech, poetry, business, dance, theatre, tech, video, music, design, writing, acting, film, social media, academia, science, and journalism – or surprise us with something we haven’t even thought of yet.

 How do I nominate someone? 

To nominate an extraordinary person, send us an email or video to 30under30@rifemagazine.co.uk with the following: 

  • Their name 
  • Their age 
  • The area they live in 
  • Why you think they should be on this list 
  • Any links you have to their work 

The deadline to nominate is 1st December, and the list will be published in January 2022. We can’t wait to read your entries!

Support more young people to have their voices heard

Rife is Watershed‘s online magazine created for young people, by young people.

We offer paid internships and publish work by young writers, photographers, illustrators, and filmmakers from all sorts of backgrounds, helping them get into creative careers. Rife has reached over 8,000 young people through our workshops, over 220 young people have made stuff for Rife on topics ranging from mental health to identity to baked beans, and last year, over 200,000 people visited our website.

In these complex and uncertain times hearing from and supporting young people who are advocating for social change and contributing fresh perspectives has never been so important. 

Through supporting Rife you can ensure that this important work continues and that more young people have their voices heard.
