30 Under 30: Winners revealed

Published:  15 May, 2023

Straight from the live announcement at the London Wine Fair, Harpers brings you 2023's 30 Under 30 – the definitive list of the year’s up and coming talent. 

Once again, we could like to congratulate the winners, while also recognising the work of all who applied. A total of 100 applications reached Harpers HQ back in February, with quality exceptionally high across a range of sectors.  

Now, we can reveal the full list below. In alphabetical order, the list reveals the top candidates as picked by our panel of judges. In addition, you will find six standout Champions, who were picked in each key area of judging criteria (Leadership, Commitment, Communication, Education, Innovation and Sustainability). 

Congratulations once again. For the full write-up, please refer to the upcoming edition of Harpers, available in print and online on 9 June.
