+ Art Directors Club has announced Call for Entries: ADC Young Guns 6, biennial competition for under-30 creative professionals. The rules are simple. You must be under the age of 30, you must have two years’ experience in a creative profession, and you must produce high-caliber visual work that will seize the jury’s attention and knock ’em dead. On April 3, ADC Young Guns 6 opens its call for entries worldwide. Fifty new Young Guns will be chosen as this year’s competition class; they will be announced in September and presented with the ADC Cube at the opening party for the gallery exhibition of their work. Selections of their work will be printed in a commemorative, limited edition volume published exclusively for the Art Directors Club by Moleskine®. The ADC Young Guns 6 class will also have their work added to the ADC’s permanent collection online and receive one-year membership in the organization. As in previous years, submissions need not conform to any specific media categories; entries may consist of one medium or as many as the contestant chooses to include. Contestants are asked to submit 6–10 pieces, up to 3 of which can be personal work, and will be judged on the basis of this body of work. Eligibility requires only that the contestant is under 30 years of age and has at least two years of professional experience (both full-time and freelance work qualify). The competition is open internationally, and past entries have come from as far as Australia, Croatia, South Africa, and Hong Kong. The entry fee is $125 USD; proceeds help fund the ADC’s wide-ranging programs throughout the year. The deadline for submissions is June 2, and late entries will be assessed an additional $25 fee. Procedural guidelines are available online (adcyoungguns.org). Adobe®, the lead sponsor for ADC Young Guns 6, supports this project for its close alignment with the way Adobe® products recognize and help creatives who work across platforms and without boundaries. Supporting sponsorship has been provided by JanouPakter, a talent recruiter for the world’s leading corporations, design consultancies, advertising and branding agencies, and fashion and luxury goods houses since 1985.
