Friday, June 7, 2013 is the very last day to get in nominations for Curbed Young Guns, Curbed's roll call of the next guard. The aim of Young Guns is to identify the most promising up-and-comers in the architecture and design industries, whether they're a junior architect or draftperson, interior design assistant or fearless head of a newly launched firm.
The criteria are simple: nominees must be under 35 or have been in the profession for under five years, and they must be currently employed in the United States. Though you most likely haven't yet heard their names, they must show extraordinary promise. These kids are the future, those that will soon lead the business but have yet to receive critical attention.
To identify them, we've opened the nomination process up to the public, and we're asking for your nominations right here. This nomination process will be open through June 7, which just so happens to be one week from today.
Then, we'll put our heads together with the legends of the industry in markets across the country who've agreed to serve on the Young Guns deliberation committee. To keep things as transparent as possible, the entire process, from the nominations to the deliberations, will be presented in full view in this space. In August, we'll name this year's class.
But first: nominations. Do you know someone who deserves to be honored as an Curbed Young Gun? Fill out the nomination form here; if you have additional supporting materials, please send them our way at firstname.lastname@example.org. And away we go.
