YOUNG GUNS 19 Finalists Announced!

After a month and a half of intense scrutiny, the esteemed jury of Young Guns 19 have selected 94 finalists from 27 countries for the prestigious Young Guns 19 competition, celebrating international creative professionals age 30 or younger. Finalists will move onto the final round of judging.

Young Guns is the industry’s only global, cross-disciplinary, portfolio-based awards competition that identifies and celebrates today’s vanguard of young creatives. This year’s entries were judged by a diverse jury of 88 top creatives — nearly half of whom are past YG winners — from 38 countries.

Program branding and design of the Cube award itself is reimagined each year by a past Young Gun winner.  This year’s YG19 branding and award are designed by Simon Chénier-Gauvreau (YG12), head of design at TUX Creative, Montréal. 

Winners will be announced on Wednesday, October 27th.

YG19 Celebration + Party

It's our first in-person event in more than a year and a half, so you know we had to come back in style! On Wednesday, November 17, the winners of Young Guns 19 will be celebrated at New York City's Sony Hall, and the entire creative community is invited to join in on the traditionally raucous festivities.

More than winning a Cube, the YG19 class is also entering an exclusive club of past Young Guns winners, including such names as Stefan Sagmeister (YG1), Bonnie Siegler (YG1), Rei Inamoto (YG4), Tim Goodman (YG7), Jessica Walsh (YG8), Dana Tanamachi (YG9), Lauren Indovina (YG11), Moth Studio (YG12), Braulio Amado (YG13), The Daniels (YG14), Noemie Le Coz (YG15), and Tré Seals (YG17). The Young Guns party has traditionally brought many past winners out to welcome the new class, and seeing that last year's awards had to be virtual, there's more reason than ever to come out and celebrate.

And speaking of last year's virtual ceremony, because they missed out on partying in person, this year's celebration will also shine a spotlight on the 31 amazing winners of Young Guns 18!
