Young Guns 13 WINNERS

2015: This is remembered as being the "tough" year; while the number of submissions remained high, the jury was very unforgiving when it came to work that displayed the slightest hint of mediocrity They held up every entry to the highest possible standards, and in the end, only nineteen Young Guns 13 winners were selected — the smallest list in Young Guns history.

The Young Guns 13 Cube, designed by YG10 winners Dark Igloo alongside design studio Chen&Kai, is comprised of personal and professional objects acquired from all twelve previous Young Guns classes, broken down and embedded into a truly individual trophy. When the winners received their hard-earned honors on September 17, 2015, they weren't just making history, they were taking home a piece of it too.
