One Show Young Ones


The One Show Young Ones Competitions aim to identify the best young creative talent from around the world. Students can enter the Young Ones Brief Competition and the newly launched Young Ones Portfolio Competition. For this year's brief competition, students are tasked with developing advertising campaigns for either TOMS, the non-profit PartnersGlobal, or BMW. The Portfolio Competition is an opportunity for students to submit the best work from their portfolio.

To qualify for entry, national and international college students must be enrolled in an accredited undergraduate or graduate college program, or other program approved by The One Club's Education Department. Submissions to the competitions are judged based on creativity and originality. Winners are awarded during the Young Ones Education Festival, held each May in New York City.
