Studying filmmaking at the University of Technology Sydney, Genevieve Clay-Smith might have thought her career path was heading out in the normal direction — an internship or two, making short films with her friends, maybe working her way up to a paid position.
B&T’s 30 under 30 awards, are widely regarded as the leading showcase for the brightest young talent working across marketing communications. Within 10 categories, 3 winners were selected to make up the top thirty brightest minds across the Australian media landscape. Out of 300 entries, 127 were shortlisted and the final 30 were announced at the awards night which took place at the Ivy. With 11 shortlisted in the entrepreneur category – we were very proud of our Genevieve for being recognised as a young leader in the media industry.
When Genevieve Clay-Smith went to university to study filmmaking, she assumed her career would take a traditional path. Perhaps, she’d start out with a few television commercials before eventually working her way up to something more creative.
Genevieve receives development funding for her first inclusive feature film, Baby Cat through the Screen Australia, Gender Matters initiative.
Gender Matters was announced in December 2015 as a direct response to the gender imbalance identified across the screen industry in Australia.
