YOUNG GUNS 20 WINNERS ANNOUNCED

A diverse group of 31 talented creative individuals and teams in 10 countries and regions have been named winners in the prestigious Young Guns 20 competition, celebrating creative professionals age 30 or younger.

This year’s entries were received from 38 countries, and judged by a diverse jury of 96 top creatives, nearly half of whom are past YG winners.

YG20 AWARDS CEREMONY + PARTY

The party took place on November 16th at Sony Hall in New York City. We celebrated the 31 winners of Young Guns 20 and it was an amazing gathering of creative talent all under one glittering, disco-balled roof.



CREATIVE CHOICE AWARD

BRTHR, the Brooklyn-based creative team of filmmakers Alex Lee and Kyle Wightman, was named Young Guns 20 Creative Choice Award winner. The accolade is the result of a public vote by the global creative community who reviewed work of all YG20 winners and selected the one they believe stands above all others.
