With the branding world brimming with exemplary young talent, Transform's Young Contenders recognises those making an outstanding contribution to the industry for a third year. Identifying the next generation of strategic, creative and innovative brand specialists, the awards will celebrate those who are shaping the branding industry of tomorrow.

The awards recognise and honour the young leaders in the European branding industry across strategic and creative disciplines. Last year’s event recognised  eight Young Contenders who are making a considerable impact on the way their companies or agencies approach brand development.

Last year’s panel of five judges, which was comprised of creative directors and managing directors and agency leaders from the likes of Siegel+Gale and Design Bridge London– recognised two Libby Tsoi as Young Contender of the year. Seven further Young Contenders were recognised, with three receiving ‘distinction’ marks from the judges. The full list of winners can be found here.

“Identifying the brand creative and strategy professionals with the most potential as young leaders, future leaders and standout talents is a rewarding experience for Transform magazine. But it also indicates a bright future for the branding industry itself,” says Brittany Golob, publishing editor at Transform magazine. “We are proud to celebrate all of this year’s Young Contenders and we will be excited to see what they are able to achieve for their companies and their industry in the future.”

This year, entries are being accepted into the Transform Young Contenders awards until 30 October. All nominees must be aged 30 years or under on 31 December 2020. Nominations can be made by the prospective Young Contender themselves or by a supervisor or colleague. Entries are accepted from organisations or individuals based in European countries only. More information about the entry process can be found here.

Each entry will be considered by a judging panel with the winners celebrated at the awards reception in March 2021.
