The Dazed Media co-founder will be recognised for his work uplifting emerging talent and as a global tastemaker

Today it was announced that the Dazed Media co-founder, curator and creative director Jefferson Hack is to be honoured with a Special Recognition Award for Cultural Curation at the 2022 Fashion Awards, which takes place on December 5 at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Two decades after founding Dazed & Confused in 1991, Hack launched AnOther Magazine, which forms part of the Dazed Media group, and celebrated its 20th anniversary last year.

This award commends the success of Hack over the past three decades in the fields of publishing and curation, from his base in London working with up-and-coming, nonconformist talent, giving them a platform to achieve new heights as mavericks in fashion and culture. Heading up a remarkable publishing portfolio, which in addition to AnOther includes Dazed and Nowness, as well as the creative agency Dazed Studio, Hack has achieved a cultural resonance comparable to few in the field of independent publishing. The steadfast commitment to empowering the next generation of creative youth ties in with his support for humanitarian and environmental organisations such as Crisis Action and Parley for the Oceans, as well as a judge for the prestigious LVMH Prize, which offers a €300,000 grant and a year-long mentorship to the fashion designer who wins – invaluable support for emerging talent. 

“We are thrilled to be honouring Jefferson Hack with the Special Recognition Award for Cultural Curation. Hack is being awarded for his incredible contribution to culture, art, and fashion as well as his limitless energy and time for growing and investing in people,” says Caroline Rush, CEO of the British Fashion Council. “His commitment to empowering youth through creativity has defined the zeitgeist and shaped the future, making him one of the most exciting creative voices of a generation. We look forward to celebrating with him in London in December.”
