    Carly Ruggeri, Rising Star 2018

Rising star is by VIDEO ENTRY
This award is to recognise younger people in the industry, under the age of 35, that are on the path to becoming leaders or innovators. We're looking for positive, energetic people who have contributed to the success of an autobody repair shop or chain of shops. This award is not open to industry suppliers, only those who work in bodyshops.

How does it work?
Be nominated or nominate yourself. We are hoping that suppliers who have been impressed with their dealings with an under 35-year-old in a smash repair shop will also nominate. We will then ask the nominees to make a video of less than 6 minutes talking about themselves and the industry. If you aren't prepared to make a video, please don't nominate yourself.

What happens if I win?
You will be flown to the Paint & Panel Bodyshop Awards dinner in Melbourne on 11 October 2019 (unless of course you're from there) to receive your award and be profiled in the the November issue of the magazine. As well as the physical award to display in your reception area, you will receive a winner's logo to display on your website and in your marketing material.

Rising Star award is proudly sponsored by Vantage Automotive
