The One Club Announces Global Finalists For Young Guns 20

Sep. 22, 2022

The One Club for Creativity, the world's foremost non-profit organization to support and celebrate the creative community, has announced the 84 finalists from 23 countries for the prestigious Young Guns 20 competition, celebrating international creative professionals age 30 or younger.

The complete list of Young Guns 20 finalists can be viewed here.  

This year's winners will be announced online on November 2, 2022, and celebrated at a special in-person event on November 16, 2022 at Sony Hall in New York.

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 96 top creatives — many of whom are past YG winners — from 41 countries.

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 Cube award itself is reimagined each year by a past Young Gun winner.  This year's YG20 branding and award are designed by Zipeng Zhu (YG13), founder and creative director at Dazzle Studio New York.  The font for the YG20 branding is created by NaN Berlin.

Levine/Leavitt Artist In Residence Award

For the ninth 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, to be announced at the November 16 event in New York, 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.  

Young Guns 20 and other One Club activities are made possible in part through the generous support of sponsors including Levine/Leavitt and Shutterstock.
