Former recipients include Agi & Sam, Alex Mullins, Astrid Andersen, Cmmn Swdn, Craig Green, Diego Vanassibara, Kit Neale, Nasir Mazhar and Vidur.
As well as being given the chance to showcase their designs at London Collections: Men in June, all 12 will receive legal, commercial and accounting advice from leading firms.
Newgen Men was founded in 2009. The recipients are selected by a committee from across the fashion and magazine industries including Four Marketing founder Ben Banks, Harvey Nichols head of menswear Darren Skey and founder and director of Fashion East and Man Lulu Kennedy.
London Collections: Men will run from June 12-15.
