ADC Young Guns 2016 Awards Ceremony + Party


One of the most anticipated events on the ADC calendar is here! On Thursday, September 22, the winners of ADC Young Guns 2016 will be honored in grand style at the ADC Gallery. We invite our friends and fans to come watch this year’s class receive their Young Guns Cubes — created and engineered by New York-based premium audio company Master & Dynamic — and join the ranks of past Young Guns such as Stefan Sagmeister, Jessica Walsh, James Victore and Kate Moross.


This year’s class of ADC Young Guns winners was revealed on Monday, September 12 (see all 30 winners here)  This year’s class marks a return to Young Guns’ roots, where winners were nominated by an esteemed cultural influencer committee made up of 40 leading thinkers, makers and visionaries from 11 countries representing a range of creative fields.

The evening will also feature an immersive audio-visual art experience by two of this year’s honorees: Paris-based digital artists Nonotak and Chicago-based interactive artist Ezra Miller.  Following the awards presentation, the party will have music selected by Brooklyn-based DJ Christine Renee.
