The GQ Global Creativity Awards are back! Our second-annual gala celebrating the industry-spanning innovators who are setting the tone for an increasingly multidisciplinary, creativity-minded world will take place on April 11 in New York.

As GQ’s global editorial director Will Welch explained last year, the very notion of creativity has morphed from being a mercurial quality possessed by some, into the “most desirable cultural currency of our times.” In turn, the GCAs were conceived to answer a question, as Welch put it: “In a world where everybody wants to be creative, who are the real-deal global icons setting the bar?”

This year, our 2024 Global Creativity Awards honorees are:

Lewis Hamilton, F1-transcending powerhouse.

Hunter Schafer, Hollywood star and activist.

Danny McBride, renaissance funnyman.

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, legendary rock gods turned Oscar-winning composers.

And rounding out GQ’s GCAs Class of 2024 are the American multimedia artist Lauren Halsey, Marni’s surrealistic creative director Francesco Risso, and ground-shaking Afrobeats innovator Asake.

All of the honorees will join us for our big bash on April 11, where the evening’s MC will be none other than Emmy-winning comedy veteran JB Smoove—hot on the heels of Curb Your Enthusiasm’s swan-song season.

As with our inaugural GCAs gala last spring—where we honored Apple CEO Tim Cook, Hollywood multi-hyphenate Donald Glover, global breakout star Hoyeon, and fashion world-builder Yohji Yamamoto—this year’s event is a celebration of “Big Ideas for a Better World.” Either way, it’s sure to be a night full of great speeches, killer style, and other major surprises. Stay tuned here for more details.
