min's Rising Stars is looking to single out the next generation of media superstars—the editors, writers, social media execs, bloggers, brand leaders, marketers, salespeople, agency execs and others who are laying the groundwork for the evolution and future success of magazine brands. Nominations are open to people age 30 years and younger; they must be media professionals working for or owning a consumer magazine or b2b media company, a Web-only media brand, or associated with an agency, advertiser or vendor that works closely with media brands.

This prestigious event recognizes the media leaders who have taken on new challenges or have made a huge impact in the past year and the Hottest Launches of the Year presented by the one and only Samir Husni “Mr. Magazine.”
