SA television commercials director Siphiwe Myeza has been listed as a winner of The One Club's Young Guns 15 competition by New York-based One Club for Creativity, a nongovernmental organisation. Young Guns identifies and celebrates today’s vanguard of global creative professionals aged 30 or younger.

Myeza is one of only 32 creatives to be selected, and the only one from South Africa.

Myeza is a director and shareholder at 7Films. His short film Chasing the Dragon — for Cape-based nongovernmental organisation Surfshack — which won a gold award at this year’s Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity, depicted how surfing could help young people overcome drug addiction. The film, produced in collaboration with the Y&R agency, also won a gold at the recent Loeries competition.
