Young Guns 14 WINNERS

2016: In a bold departure from recent years, Young Guns 14 returned the award to its roots. The awards eschewed a call for entries in favor of a nomination process where esteemed cultural influencers would choose cutting-edge creatives, who would then be selected by a panel of judges made up of industry heavyweights and previous Young Guns winners. The end result? A class of 30 winners representing eight different countries and an eclectic array of discipline

The Cube, which was unveiled at the September 17, 2016 ceremony, was created by luxury audio brand Master & Dynamic, under the guidance of designer and YG8 winner Nicole Jacek.
