The One Club for Creativity's Education Initiatives support the next generation of advertising and design industry creatives. We work with schools and agencies to create opportunities for professional development, recognition, and networking.

Our Young Ones Competition awards the most promising up-and-coming international talent from across creative disciplines. Whether it's working on an Advertising Brief or submitting the best examples of their craft to our ADC or TDC Awards, students can find a place to shine within our Young Ones Competition. See the breadth of talent for yourself in the Young Ones Winner Archives.

Being the best means learning from the best, so, on top of our awards, we partner with veteran creatives to provide portfolio reviews, workshops, and events for our student community! Student Members receive discounts to our programs, as well as exclusive opportunities for mentorship, such as Mentor & Creative.

We work with colleges, portfolio programs, and agencies to champion a culture of inclusion and diversity, opportunity and mentorship, and a future of creativity that is constantly innovating. Whether it's on the chalkboard or in the boardroom. Our priority is opening doors to new ideas and celebrating the success of our community.








For countless creatives worldwide, winning at the One Show, ADC Annual Awards, or the TDC Competition is a dream come true. But dreams have to start somewhere, and for that, we have the Young Ones Student Awards.

This global creative competition aims to lift up the best of the next generation of talent and challenges students in creative studies to put their best foot forward in hopes of winning one of the first honors of their burgeoning careers.

Winners are awarded annually at the Young Ones Student Awards Ceremony. Finalists are also included in the online Young Ones Student Awards Archive.

Twice a year our immersive Saturday Career Workshops bring together high school juniors and seniors for inspiring interactions with well-known creatives. These experiences are coupled with hands-on workshops to help students put their newly developed skills into action. Through workshop activities, students gain knowledge of various career entry points, learn diverse techniques and viewpoints, and cull their art and design literacy. Culminating in a college portfolio day, the program affords participants the opportunity to meet university and art school representatives, develop connections, grow their talent, and gain deeper insight into future career opportunities.

A grant from the Richard and Jean Coyne Family Foundation make the Saturday Career Workshops possible.
