Does winning major award really even happen if it isn’t on social media?

Probably. But sharing it on social certain makes it feel more real — and, in COVID times, these honestly may be the only celebrations some of these winners get. So we were happy to see the social announcements and well wishes ripple around the world late last week as winners of INMA’s “30 Under 30 Awards” were announced. 

Honestly, I am so wowed by these young professionals. In addition to making me question what I’ve done with my life, these 30 winners make me feel good about the future of the news media industry. If these are the people we are passing things off to, we are in good hands.

The competition is part of INMA’s Young Professionals Initiative and received 163 applications in July and August, picking the 30 winners who hail from 20 countries, which include six regional“grand prize” winners.

Here is a sampling of their virtual celebrations:
