Diesel's impressed us once again with their tireless support of young creative talent and the inventive way they do it. The winners of their annual competition for the Diesel Wall have been announced and this year the project has grown from just one wall in Milan to four across the world.

Like previous years, young creatives were asked to propose large-scale urban artworks, but this time around for walls in Milan, Beijing, Copenhagen and Toronto with the theme "I Could Be Yours."

After seeing over 1,000 entries, the high-profile jury (including award-winning Chinese media mogul Hung Huang, Marketta Seppala, director of Finland's Fund for Art Exchange who also coordinated the "Padiglione Nordico: at the Venice Biennale this year and Wilbert Das, Diesel’s Creative Director) chose four winners.
