You have just days left to get your entry in for the TMN 30 Under 30 Awards.

First entries will close as the Easter long weekend wraps up, at 11:59pm AEST on Monday, April 5.

Until that time, entries into the TMN 30 Under 30 Awards will be free.

From Tuesday – for the latecomers who’d rather spend their long weekend doing something more relaxing and less taxing – entries will cost $49 (+GST). Late entries close at 11:59 AEST on April 18.
