Young Guns

Young Guns recognizes the vanguard of creative professionals 30 years of age and under. Founded in 1996, the portfolio-based competition has grown to become one of the most coveted awards for young creatives around the globe. For many designers, art directors, illustrators, copywriters, photographers, filmmakers, animators and other creatives, being named a Young Guns winner is a sure sign of a skyrocketing career, as well as a source of validation for all of the stressful days and sleepless nights that have come with early successes.

Young Guns is more than just an award; it's an exclusive community of rebels and prodigies, unsung heroes and rising stars, all who network, mentor and collaborate together. Over the years, our roster has grown to include some exceptional talent, among them Stefan Sagmeister (YG1), Rei Inamoto (YG4), James Victore (YG1), Jessica Walsh (YG8), Alli Truch (YG2), Natasha Jen (YG3), Pablo Medina (YG3), Jon Contino (YG9), Scott Stowell (YG3), Lindsay Ballant (YG7), Alex Trochut (YG6), Dark Igloo (YG10), Anna Bond (YG12), Zipeng Zhu (YG13), The Daniels (YG14) and Cait Oppermann (YG15).
