Next Creative Leaders

About Next Creative Leaders

Developed collaboratively by The One Club for Creativity and The 3% Movement, Next Creative Leaders is a portfolio competition that identifies, celebrates, and gives a global platform to talented women and non-binary creatives who are making their mark on the world with both their work and a unique point of view on creative leadership.

Deadlines & Dates

Deadline: August 26, 2022

Who Can Enter

Talented women and non-binary creatives who are stepping into leadership roles: Copywriters, Art Directors, Designers, ACDs, newly-promoted Creative Directors and Design Directors (read: less than a year with that title) and creative teams who are doing game-changing work and helping change our industry for the better.

Equitable Access

We’re working hard to break down any and all barriers to talented women and non-binary creatives seeing the spotlight. We believe so fiercely in the importance of gender diversity that we’re waiving the application fee for this competition.
