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).

Nadia Lee Cohen

Photographer, Director

Nadia Lee Cohen is a photographer, filmmaker and self-portrait artist. Heavily inspired by cinema, Americana and Britain particularly in in the 1960?s and 70?s, her photographs and films are veritable visions of saturated, surreal dreamscapes.

Drawing upon the duality of the female form, fine art photographer and filmmaker Nadia locks our optics upon the twisted paradise that lurks within her mind, exploring the paradoxical standoff between strength and fragility within womankind.

Nadia has worked with some of the world?s most exciting brands and artists, from Miu Miu, to A$AP Rocky. She has been interviewed by the likes of Vogue, Elle and LOVE magazine, and her work featured in Paper, i-D, Vice, New York Magazine, Hunger and many others.
Most recently, she directed the surreal, color-saturated music video ?After the Storm? for Kali Uchis, featuring Tyler, the Creator and Bootsy Collins.
