This year's judging panel comprised 2017's winner Tom Charman, Louise Teboul from Common Purpose, Rob Pollard from Lightbox Digital and Aman Sidhu from Balfour Beatty and was chaired by Russell Jeans.
Mr Jeans, chief operating officer of Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce which runs the awards, said: "Future Faces has grown significantly this year and the standard of entries that we have received has reflected the growth this chamber has experienced.
"These awards demonstrate the excellent young professionals we have in Greater Birmingham and celebrate their hard work and achievements."
Future Faces manager Anna Assinder added: "We have had another record-breaking year of quality entries, with a total 20 per cent increase.
"With this increase, we have also seen a more diverse range of entries this year which is a fantastic testament to the range of young professionals thriving in Greater Birmingham and bodes very well for the future leaders of our city."
The overall winner will receive a place on Common Purpose's streetwise MBA programme worth £5,000.
The ceremony takes place at Symphony Hall in Birmingham on August 31.
