The One Club for Creativity and The 3% Movement have announced the initial group of top creatives from 17 countries who will serve on the global jury for Next Creative Leaders 2022, a free competition recognising women and non-binary creatives on the rise.
Now in its eighth year, Next Creative Leaders is a free 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 that’s changing the industry for the better.
The initial list of judges, many of whom are past NCL winners, is as follows:
Eligible entrants for NCL are those who are stepping into leadership roles, including copywriters, art directors, designers, ACDs, newly-promoted creative and design directors with less than one year in the role, and creative teams who are doing game-changing work.
Along with naming 10 global winners based upon the highest scores, the competition also recognises regional winners in Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, Middle East/Africa, and North America. A list of all previous NCL winners can be viewed here.
Entries highlighting a candidate’s creativity, leadership, and unique point of view must be submitted by the August 26th, 2022 deadline. To make Next Creative Leaders as open and accessible as possible, there is no fee to enter.
Entrants are judged on four-to-six pieces of creative work and information about how they - and their work - are pushing the industry forward and making a positive contribution in terms of diversity, mentoring, and advocacy. Winners will be announced in Fall 2022.
Each NCL winner receives a one-year complimentary individual membership with The One Club, with opportunities to participate in future One Club awards juries, and complimentary tickets to a One Club professional development conference ($1,000+ value), panels, and mentorship events.
Winners also each get their work showcased on The One Club website, promotion on both The 3% Movement and The One Club social channels, and potential speaking opportunities. The 10 global winners also get a dedicated profile article about them on The One Club website.
Branding for Next Creative Leaders 2022 was designed by the team of NCL 2021 winners Cara Mia Cecchini and Mia Rafowitz, both of whom are on this year’s jury.

The team offers consulting services with agencies and brands to support more diverse leadership, and a 3% Certified program that awards those demonstrating true leadership around gender diversity.
