ACN hails the region’s rising IT stars
Arabian Computer News is looking for the top 30 IT professionals under 30.

The Middle East's IT young guns are set to battle it out as Arabian Computer News brings you the first in a new annual compilation of the region's top 30 IT professionals under 30.

While the region's IT executives and bosses regularly feel the warm embrace of the limelight, the achievements and effort of the Middle East IT sector's younger professionals working in every part of the industry including IT departments, outsourcers, development, marketing, PR, and sales, often don't get the recognition they deserve.

Arabian Computer News will highlight the achievements of these unsung heroes in its August issue, as part of its special look at training and youth issues in the Middle East's IT sector.

As part of that, Arabian Computer News is inviting all readers to vote now for those they consider a rising star. They can be from your own company, or any other business. The most important thing is that you feel they deserve recognition for their actions, and believe they have what it takes to become the next generation of IT leaders in the region.

For a nomination to be considered, it must include a high-resolution photo of the candidate, their job title, their role, and their nationality, as well as a short explanation in English of why you feel they deserve to be listed in Arabian Computer News magazines' 30 under 30 feature. They also have to be based in the Middle East, and be 29 or under as of August 1st, obviously.

The definitive top 30 will be published in the August issue of Arabian Computer News in August. The deadline for entries is Thursday June 30th 2011. That gives you a little over a month and a half to put forward those that you feel deserve to be named as one of Arabian Computer News' 30 under 30.

And no cheating - we can tell if you're over 30.

All names should be submitted to ben.furfie@itp.com. The deadline is Thursday June 30th 2011.
