New York Festivals launched the Torch Awards in 2014 to champion young creative talent. The competition encourages creatives from the ages of 18 to 25 to take part in a unique competition that explores a creative challenge and offers mentor training on how to pitch their idea. This year's challenge is the 60-Second Spot. Based on a provided brief, entrants submitted their idea for a 60-second video for the 2015 non-profit partner, The Project Solution.

Torch Awards Jury members will determine the Grand Winning Team based on the following criteria: relevance to and understanding of The Project Solution brand and mission; a clear demonstration of campaign goals and strategy; adherence to the brief, including scope and budgets; and creative idea.

New York Festivals partnered this year with The Project Solution, a non-profit organisation whose philosophy is centred on the idea that small solutions can make a big impact. The results: 5 years, 22 projects, 11 countries, and over 12,000 lives changed.
