MRS is looking for standout examples of how brands have been researching and engaging young audiences and their families over the past 12 months. We want to hear how youngsters and their families have been interacting with their favourite brands, media platforms, tech and activities and what valuable insights brands have been discovering about their audiences.

In addition, we’re interested in research that addresses the big concerns of 2021 around children and adolescents’ wellbeing, play & development and education. Please share your ground-breaking research which has sought to understand and get to the heart of these issues.
