A talented young creative from the UAE is among the 84 finalists from 23 countries for The One Club for Creativity’s prestigious Young Guns 20 competition, celebrating international creative professionals age 30 or younger.

The only YG20 finalist from the Middle East is Ameya Gupta, film editor in Dubai.

This year’s winners will be announced online on November 2, 2022, and celebrated at a special in-person event on November 16, 2022 at Sony Hall in New York.

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 96 top creatives — many of whom are past YG winners — from 41 countries.

All Young Guns 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 get a complimentary one-year One Club for Creativity membership, permanent membership in the Young Guns network, a chance to be featured in Young Guns events and an assortment of career-boosting opportunities from Young Guns sponsors.

Program branding and design of the Cube award itself is reimagined each year by a past Young Gun winner. 

This year’s YG20 branding and award have been designed by Zipeng Zhu (YG13), founder and creative director at Dazzle Studio New York. The font for the YG20 branding was created by NaN Berlin.
