The Young Ones Student Awards is one of the world’s most acclaimed competitive showcases for advertising, digital communication and design students.

The programme offers three separate awards:

  • Young Ones ADC, offering students the chance to earn an ADC Cube by competing in the same disciplines and categories as the prestigious ADC Annual Awards;
  • Young Ones One Show Brief competition, which tasks a team of college students with creating client work with the chance to earn a One Show Pencil;
  • Young Ones Portfolio competition, where students submit 6-15 pieces of their work and have it judged by industry professionals.

Based on cumulative points for all awards won by a school’s students in this year’s competition, ArtCenter College of Design Pasadena was crowned Young Ones 2022 School of the Year.
