Last week, I entered The Art Director's Club International Young Guns Competition that is open to creative individuals under the age of 30 (I'm only 24).
The annual competition "exists to identify the vanguard of creative professionals who let loose their imaginations, shattering conventions and breaking boundaries with a dash of brilliance and personal flair. Those of you who’ve set your minds to making a name for yourself, raising new standards from within cubicles, conference rooms, cramped apartments, and studios across the world—this is your chance to put those battle cries in action. If you’re age thirty or under and have two years of the working life under your belt, we’d like you to show us what it’s all about."
I included in my entry some of my recent national photo publications, upcoming 2009 calendar, surfboard designs, epic art public installations and a few stylized portraits. I look forward to the competition results that will be announced in a few months.
