Edison Research is bringing back its “30 Under 30” campaign.

The company wants to highlight 30 people in broadcasting who are 30 or younger, “working in any aspect of radio or on any platform with exceptional achievement.” That can include programming, sales, management, online/Webcasting, engineering and marketing.

The research company ran the search twice before, in 2007 and 2008.

Nominations are open. Names will be announced in November. Winners receive registration for the Arbitron Client Conference and Jacobs Media Summit in Baltimore in December; one will receive a trip to the Future of Radio Conference in South Carolina next March.
