In the mood for all-nighter? Because tomorrow is the last day to enter the Art Directors Club’s Young Guns competition, which spotted Stefan Sagmeister, James Victore, and Chris Rubino when they were but wee design/art powerhouses in-the making. Now in its seventh go-round, the cross-disciplinary, portfolio-based competition is open to those aged 30 or under that are doing great things in graphic design, photography, illustration, advertising and art direction, environmental design, film, animation, video, interactive design, object design, and/or typography. Until 11:59pm EST tomorrow, Young Guns 7 is accepting entries from far and wide (last year’s saw entrants from 38 countries). A jury of 29 past ADC Young Guns including Christoph Niemann, Graeme Hall, and Jennifer Lew will select the 50 winners. In addition to taking home a coveted Young Guns cube, winners will compete for ADC Young Guns-Moleskine grants and the opportunity to create original artwork for New York’s new Ace Hotel (née Hotel Breslin).
