NCL REGIONAL HONORS


Along with naming 10 global winners based upon the highest scores from judges, The One Club and The 3% Movement have also expanded the program to recognize those in each of the six regions (North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific, MENA, Africa and Europe) whose work and creative vision the judges feel deserve Regional Honor accolades. Regional honorees will be recognized on The One Club's website via a press article, promoted on our social media, have opportunities to participate in future One Club awards juries, panels and mentorship events and more.
