The One Club Announces Global Finalists for Young Guns 16, Celebrating Creative Professionals Age 30 and Under


The One Club for Creativity, the world's foremost non-profit organization recognizing creative excellence in advertising and design, used Facebook live to announce the 82 global finalists for the Young Guns 16 competition, celebrating international creative professionals age 30 or younger.



For the complete list of Young Guns 16 finalists, please visit http://youngguns.org/finalists.

This marks the first time live social video has been used to announce finalists for Young Guns, the industry’s only international, cross-disciplinary, portfolio-based awards competition that identifies today’s vanguard of young creatives. The 82 finalists consist of creatives originally hailing from 24 countries this year, two-thirds from outside the US. Submissions were judged by 61 top creatives from around the world, about half of whom are past Young Guns winners. The full jury list can be viewed at http://youngguns.org/jury/.

This year’s winners will be announced at the Young Guns 16 awards ceremony and party on November 15, 2018 at the Highline Ballroom in New York. The evening will be hosted by Gemma O’Brien (Young Guns 13 winner), acclaimed Australian artist and designer specializing in lettering, typography and illustration. Tickets are available at https://www.oneclub.org/events/-young-guns-16-ceremony-party.

Young Guns 16 winners receive a unique version of the iconic Young Guns Cube, designed exclusively for this year’s incoming class, and have their permanent profile page added to the Young Guns website. Winners also receive a complimentary one-year membership to The One Club for Creativity, permanent membership in Young Guns network, a chance to be featured in Young Guns events and an assortment of career-boosting opportunities from Young Guns sponsors.

“Young Guns is special because it’s incredibly difficult to make the cut as finalists,” said Michael O'Rourke, executive director, ADC. “Many of the best young creatives from around the world entered really strong portfolios across multiple disciplines, so the judges certainly have their work cut out for them. While winning and joining the Young Guns community is the ultimate goal, it’s a huge badge of honor for a creative to make it this far."

Past Young Guns include rising stars who went on to become leaders in their chosen fields, including advertising creatives Rei Inamoto (YG4) and Menno Kluin (YG6); graphic designers James Victore (YG1), Stefan Sagmeister (YG1) and Jessica Walsh (YG8); illustrators Christoph Niemann (YG2) and Deanne Cheuk (YG4); photographers Ryan McGuinness (YG2) and Jeremy Floto/Cassandra Warner (aka floto+warner, YG5); typographers Alex Trochut (YG6) and Gemma O’Brien (YG13); film and video director Mike Mills (YG1), animation artist Todd St. John (YG1) and others.

Program branding is developed each year by a past Young Gun winner. Branding for Young Guns 16 was designed by New York-based creative studio and artist representation agency Sunday Afternoon, led by Young Guns 11 winner Juan Carlos Pagan, co-founder and executive creative director.

Young Guns 16 and other One Club activities are made possible in part through the generous support of sponsors including BBDO, Crealev, Diageo, Facebook, Levine/Leavitt, MediaMonks, Shutterstock and Sunday Afternoon.

The Levine/Leavitt Artist-In-Residence Awards
Founded in 2014 in partnership with international artists management agency Levine/Leavitt, the Levine/Leavitt Artist-In-Residence Award is presented to newly crowned Young Guns whose bodies of work stands out from even their fellow winners.

East and West Side Story – The World’s First Film Made By an Airline and an Airport


Finnair and Helsinki Airport have been connecting East and West for 35 years via Helsinki. To celebrate this achievement, the two have released a short film, the first one of its kind – made by an airline and an airport. The short film East and West Side Story speaks of meaningful encounters that take place when people travel.

East and West Side Story follows a famous writer in need of personal privacy, while the whole world wants to have her in the limelight. The story plays on three continents, spacing from the US to Korea and ending in Finland. As the film’s title East and West Side Story suggests, the film has two directors: Young-Wok Paik aka “Wookie” comes from Korea and Johan Storm from Sweden. The two directors both give their point of view on the same story, produced by B-Reel Films (Bergman: a Year in Life). The leading roles are played by Anne Bergstedt (Boardwalk Empire, Black Swan) and Jae Hoon (One Day Maybe).

East and West Side Story is an excellent example of modern companies using branded entertainment to tell more emotional stories and reach an even wider audience around the world.

The short film premiered last night in a very special event at Helsinki Airport, where an aircraft hangar was turned into a movie theater for one night. The guests were hosted by Renny Harlin, the established Hollywood filmmaker and one of the most sought-after directors in China.
