Hello! And welcome to The Young Creatives – the platform for creative people aged 16-25 to showcase their talent, as well as read tips, reviews and more.

The Young Creatives (TYC) was launched by Katie Byrne in January 2011, on the realisation that there was no site like this: no single place where artists, writers, designers, photographers, chefs, and more could share their talent and network with other similarly – or totally differently! – talented individuals.

To be featured on The Young Creatives, you must…

  • Be aged 16 to 25 years old
  • Have a creative talent you want to shout from the rooftops about
  • Have a blog or website and examples/samples of your work that you can email over

Contact us to get in touch!

That’s not all…

As well as showcasing talent, we also offer a range of reviews, whether it be for an upcoming movie release or a classic book that you simply must read.

We love to hear from our readers and if you would be interested in contributing – in whatever form takes your fancy (we’re open to ideas!) – then please do get in touch.

We’re also open to brand collaborations; if you represent an author or movie you’d like to see featured on the site, or simply want to find out more about how you can engage with our cool, savvy audience, get in touch!

A few facts and figures for you…

– TYC was launched on 9 January 2011 on realising a gap in the market.

– Our key audience is based in the UK; we’re also big in the US and France. Bonjour!

– We received over 13,000 visitors on our busiest day. #nobigdeal

– To date, we’ve featured over 350 creatives across the globe, as well as featured interviews with the likes of Peggy Porschen, Tatty Devine and Caitlin Moran. Oh, and Charles Dickens…

Get in touch! We don’t bite, promise…

  1. Hello,

    I’m currently a student at Manchester Metropolitain University and was wondering on what we have to do to get featured?
    I’m currently in my third year of D&AD (Design & Art Direction) and I think this would be a great oppertunity to show my work!

    Thank you!

  2. Hello,

    My name is Amy Clarke and I am a film maker from Liverpool UK. I’ve just started my film making site-


    and I’m wondering if we can work together some how? I’m making my big film at the start of next month, although it’s only a 5 day shoot I’m doing a day by day diary with photos of how the shoot went. I have lost of ideas for the site.

    All the best, speak soon,
