The One Club for Creativity, the world's foremost non-profit organization recognizing creative excellence in advertising and design, has announced the 81 global finalists hailing from 22 countries for the prestigious Young Guns 17 competition, celebrating international creative professionals age 30 or younger.

The complete list of Young Guns 17 finalists can be viewed here.  

Young Guns is the industry’s only international, cross-disciplinary, portfolio-based awards competition that identifies today’s vanguard of young creatives.  Submissions were received from more than 45 countries and judged by 61 top creatives from around the world, about half of whom are past Young Guns winners.  

This year’s winners will be recognized at the Young Guns 17 celebration and party on Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at Sony Hall, 235 West 46th St. in New York.  

Young Guns 17 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 receive a complimentary one-year membership to The One Club for Creativity, permanent membership in 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 Cube award itself is recreated each year by a past Young Gun winner.  This year’s YG17 branding and award are designed by Hey Studio, Barcelona, founded by Verònica Fuerte (YG7).
