Young Guns 15

Young Guns 15

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 resulted in 32 new Young Guns, who were awarded a colorful translucent Cube designed by YG9 winner Roanne Adams and RoAndCo.

The Young Guns 15 ceremony and party took place on November 16, 2017.
