This year YoungGuns is providing young and emerging talent the opportunity to get more of their work into YoungGuns for free. Young and emerging talent can back themselves or a friend with YoungGuns 2012 “20 Guns of the People”.
All you have to do is:
1. Upload their work for free;
2. Activate their social network to vote for them:
The top 20 voted (professionals and students) by the people will automatically be entered into YGAward2012; the premier award for global young talent in advertising, digital, design, PR; and students. Young and emerging talent can prove their self-belief right, get the recognition they deserve and who knows what else. For those already working maybe a pay rise; a bigger office; an expense account?; and for students maybe the job at THE agency they have always wanted.
A special Black Bullet trophy will be awarded for the No.1 peoples’ choice (professional and student) – the most voted. Just a little something extra that can be casually waved around in any discussion with bosses about the future; or job interviews.
LAUNCH is a YoungGuns initiative connecting students and graduates with creative organizations who want the best emerging talent. For any more details on YGAward or Launch, please contact Livia via email here.
