Nice to see Australia kicking some young international arse.

Young Guns would have to be the biggest load of crap.

First, does the industry really need another bullshit award show?

Second, who cares if you're young or not. It's more important to be good.

Good luck to anyone who uses it to get ahead in the industry, but seriously, who cares?

2.50pm the judges have to abstain on work from their own agencies so no coincidence...sorry.
i'd say it's probably got more to do with those agencies having the best work!
And 12.25pm go and drown yourself. No one cares what you think. Just because you're jealous a show like this wasn't around when you weren't such an old fart......oh dear

Where's 303 on the Australian agency list? I know we're from over West, but we still got shortlisted.

You should be ashamed of yourself - picking on an old man!

Let's be honest about Young Guns.

It's really an opportunity for some dudes to make money by exploiting the desperation of junior people in our industry to be get recognised.

It's also an opportunity for a clique of agencies to promote themselves with often scammy ads for which they pay their creators very little money.

Again, the fact is that good work is good work. The age of the person that did it is utterly irrelevant.

One more thing...

What was it again?

Ummm....

I'm getting a little old and foggy nowadays.

You have to be kidding 12:25.
But then again, you're probably just bitter at seeing a talent pool that's about to put you out of a job.

Are the guys who run Young Guns still young enough to enter, or just old enough to take the money.

Well done on getting the only Aussie nomination in Print Category. Maybe Lynchy just didn't notice

No ideas made it onto the "Bottom Draw" shortlist?

They have a scam catagory then not one agency in the world is able to produce a scam ad worthy of at least a shortlist?

Seems as though YG are the ones doing the scamming.

smells fishy to me

young guns is for everyone! if you want to enter something, just get the juniour to put his name on it. all of you will be credited if the campaign wins. You just won't be named the young gun. But the campaign will still get exposure etc.

come on stop complaining and share the love with the junior!
