Remember that movie with Emilio Estevez, Kiefer Sutherland and Charlie Sheen called Young Guns? They were cute and young and shooting firearms… Yum. I was just listening to the soundtrack (don’t ask), which has the seminal (okay, not really) “Blaze of Glory” by Jon Bon Jovi on it when I realized – hell, have the ADC’s Young Guns been selected yet? Turns out they have.
As you know, this is the very fine Art Director’s Club way of selecting the vanguard of young talent. No, you can’t see their work right now. Yes, we’d like to see it to, but alas. The site does not link to homepages or entries. That said, there will be an exhibit in New York on September 5 to the 19th. If you don’t live here to bad. You’ll have to wait for the winning entries to go live in the permanent online collection on the 22nd. By then, you will have forgotten about it.
Silly, silly ADC. In the mean time, the list of winners is after the jump. We wholeheartedly say congratulations! We’re all for some new blood, fresh ideas, total renegades, all that jazz.
