Who are the rising young executives driving our business forward?
For the seventh consecutive year, Billboard's special feature "30 Under 30" will identify these individuals -- and we invite our readers to offer their nominations online here.
Individuals in all aspects of the music industry are eligible if they were born after Aug 13, 1981. (Our report will be published in the issue dated Aug. 13, 2011). Individuals who make their living primarily as artists and/or songwriters are not eligible unless they own their recordings or songs and act in a business or executive capacity to market them.
Billboard editors will choose among the nominees by considering achievements in the past 12 months, the numeric measurement of those achievements, and the nominee's leadership within the broader industry, as described in his or her nomination.
The deadline for nominations is Friday, June 10, 2011
