Winners are also invited to attend the ADIA Leaders Forum held on May 26 in Sydney and ESOMAR’s congress in Toronto, Canada.

Sarah Campbell, CEO of ADIA said, “I love this joint initiative. It demonstrates the value of supporting and recognising our exceptional young talent, showcases the industry, and shines a light on the immense value that quality research, data, and insights can bring to a prominent social issue. 

“We were delighted to receive so many entries this year, all of the highest calibre, which makes it difficult for the judges but reflects the incredible skill of our purpose-driven young industry professionals. These young researchers have submitted excellent ideas across various significant social issues requiring support and we look forward to the final round.”
