Transform's Young Contenders MEA

The branding world is brimming with excellent young talent. Now, Transform's Young Contenders MEA will recognise those making an outstanding contribution to the industry in the region. Identifying the next generation of strategic, creative and innovative brand specialists, the awards will celebrate those who will be crucial to the success of brand strategy and design in the region in the years to come.

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 brand strategy and design.

Talent attraction is expected to be one of the biggest challenges for design agencies next year. Getting your staff included amongst the Young Contenders for 2022 highlights the efforts your agency is prepared to put into staff development.

Individuals entering or being nominated for Transform's Young Contenders should show the most promise as young professionals. This class of emerging talent should demonstrate their talent and potential as well as the impact they have made within their organisations and for their clients. Entrants and nominators should submit evidence of the young contender’s work and the achievements he/she obtained in the area of rebranding and brand development.

The awards will be judged by a panel of agency heads and in-house thought leaders who will consider entrants from across MEA. Those named as Transform's Young Contenders will be the best and brightest and will be crucial to the success of brand strategy and design in the years to come.

The Young Contenders recognised through this awards programme are the flag-bearers for an exciting, talented and creative future in the Middle East and Africa, and we look forward to reading all about them.
