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).

Mathery

Directors, Photographers and Spatial Designer

Erika Zorzi and Matteo Sangalli comprise Mathery, a one of a kind Italian directing duo bred from a background in design and photography. Currently based in Brooklyn, their work turn simple, everyday life upside down to form tongue and cheek worlds of humor and breathtaking art direction. The pair excels in creating abstract universes and their talents cross different mediums and disciplines from film to photography, as well as space and object design. Mathery's strong personal and professional relationship since meeting at university has enabled them to bring to life their unique creations as independent artists, working in Australia, Asia and Europe. Alternating between personal independent projects and directing commercial advertisements, the duo sees each scene is an opportunity to observe the world we know and transform it into one we don’t, one that’s filled with mystery, irony, and satire.
