Sep. 28, 2023

The One Club for Creativity announced the talented young creatives in 18 countries and regions who have been selected as finalists for the prestigious Young Guns 21 competition, celebrating international creative professionals age 30 or younger.

Young Guns is the industry’s only global, cross-disciplinary, portfolio-based awards competition that identifies and celebrates today’s vanguard of young creatives.  This year’s entries were judged by a diverse jury of 100 top creatives — many of whom are past YG winners — from 47 countries.

The complete list of Young Guns 21 finalists can be viewed here.

This year’s winners will be announced on November 1, 2023, and celebrated at a special in-person party hosted by designer, author, educator, and “Design Matters” podcaster Debbie Millman on November 15, 2023 at Sony Hall in New York.

All Young Guns winners receive a unique version of the iconic Young Guns Cube, designed exclusively for this year’s incoming class, and have their permanent profile page added to the Young Guns website.  Winners also get a complimentary one-year One Club for Creativity membership, permanent membership in the Young Guns network, a chance to be featured in Young Guns events and an assortment of career-boosting opportunities from Young Guns sponsors.

Program branding and design of the YG Cube award itself is reimagined each year by a past Young Gun winner.  This year’s YG21 branding was created by Zuzanna Rogatty (YG18), senior designer at COLLINS New York.

Levine/Leavitt Artist In Residence Award

For the 10th consecutive year, international artists management agency and Young Guns sponsor Levine/Leavitt will bestow one talented winner with the Artist In Residence Award.

The honor is presented annually to a newly crowned Young Gun whose body of work truly stands out, as judged by an advisory board of industry professionals across a range of disciplines.  The winner receives a full year of professional development, guidance and mentorship from Levine/Leavitt to help advance their career.
