How to Enter

CREATING A PORTFOLIO
  • Next Creative Leaders entrants must submit 4 to 6 professional, published entries. After creating your One Club account and Next Creative Leaders profile, click Create an Entry to add projects to your portfolio.
  • To submit your completed portfolio click Finish Entry. Do note that as long as you haven’t yet submitted your portfolio, you can save your entry progress and edit it as you see fit.
  • Projects entered need not have been created in a particular year — entries will be judged as a collection of work. Submissions need not conform to any specific media categories; your entry may feature projects in one medium or several.
  • Each project you submit will require a description, plus a statement of your role in its creation.
