Young Guns 15 WINNERS

2017 — Now under the umbrella of The One Club for Creativity, Young Guns 15 returned the competition to an open entry process, encouraging young creatives from a broad range of disciplines to apply. By seeking out talent from beyond the design and advertising worlds, Young Guns 15 received a record number of entries from more than 40 countries.

The YG15 Jury was made up of nearly 50 acclaimed creatives, equally balanced between men and women, and with just over half of them past Young Guns winners themselves. After nearly two months of careful deliberation, the jury selected 84 entrants for a finalist list — the first time in Young Guns history that the finalists were publicly revealed. The final round of judging took place in New York City, with both private voting and open debate from the judges leading to the 32 winners below.

YG15 Creative Choice Award

For the first time in Young Guns history, the One Club for Creativity was pleased to announce the Young Guns Creative Choice Award. We encouraged the global creative community at large to explore the works of this year's class of Young Guns winners, and to select which one winner they believe stood above all others, even in this rarified group of superstars.

The winner of the first ever Young Guns 15 Creative Choice Award is SJ.
