Young Guns 3 WINNERS

2001: Young Guns continued to grow, not only in the number of nominations, but also in how the winners were celebrated. For the first time ever, Young Guns 3 were featured in a full-color hardcover book, alongside the traditional exhibition. This year, a seven-person committee selected 99 New York-based young creatives to join the ranks of a community already growing in stature.
