Take Your Shot at Young Guns 8

The competition that spotted Stefan Sagmeister, James Victore, and Mike Mills when they were but wee design/art powerhouses-to-be is back for its eighth go-round. Behold Young Guns 8, the Art Directors Club‘s international, cross-disciplinary, portfolio-based competition to identify the young creative vanguard. By “young,” they mean 30 or under, and by “creatives,” they mean those doing great things in graphic design, photography, illustration, advertising and art direction, environmental design, film, animation, video, interactive design, object design, and/or typography. What’s so special about Young Guns? It recognizes an individual, and considers a body of work, not a single ad or design. Also, the winners get a really cool cube. Young Guns 8 is open to ADC members and non-members worldwide (last year’s saw entrants from 84 countries). A jury of past ADC Young Guns including Rodrigo Corral, Jason Fulford, and Julia Hoffman will select the 50 winners. The ADC is gunning for entries through May 12, so fire away.
