Rules & Regulations

Young Guns 19 is open to creative professionals - individuals or teams of up to three people - who meet the following requirements.

WHAT SORTS OF CREATIVES CAN ENTER?
Young Guns is an international competition open to all who qualify. Entrants must be professionals working in creative field(s) including but not limited to: graphic design, photography, illustration, advertising, art direction, environmental design, film, animation, motion graphics, interactive design, typography, architecture, copywriting, product design, package design, fashion design, furniture design, interior design, sound design or industrial design. That said, if your work does not fit within any of these categories, this does not necessarily mean that it isn't eligible!

WHAT IS THE AGE LIMIT?
Young Guns entrants must be 30 years of age or younger on the day entries open in order to be eligible. For Young Guns 19, this means you must be born after March 16, 1990. As long as you are 30 or younger on that date, you’ll be eligible — even if you turn 31 while the competition is open for entries.

Entrants will be required to submit proof of age in the form of a passport, driver's license or other government-issued ID.

HOW MUCH EXPERIENCE DO I NEED TO QUALIFY?
Eligible Young Guns entrants must have a minimum of two years of professional experience (both full time and freelance work qualify).

I'M A STUDENT. CAN I ENTER YOUNG GUNS?
Sorry, Young Guns is not open to students, unless you also have the aforementioned minimum work experience.

CAN CREATIVE TEAMS ENTER?
Certainly! Teams/partnerships/collectives of up to three people may enter as one unit, however each person must adhere to all other eligibility qualifications (age, experience etc.)

I'VE ENTERED YOUNG GUNS BEFORE. MAY I ENTER AGAIN?
As long as you meet all other qualifications, you are welcome to enter again. That said, once you have successfully been named a Young Guns winner, you may not enter again. This includes members of past winning teams entering as solo creatives and vice versa.

WHAT KIND OF WORK CAN BE ENTERED?
Young Guns entrants must submit six professional and personal projects, with a minimum of four projects being professional, published work. Unpublished and client-rejected spec projects may be included as personal work.

Projects entered need not have been created in a particular year — entries will be judged as a collection of work. Submissions need not conform to any specific media categories; your entry may feature projects in one medium or several.
