    Open to professionals internationally, Applied Arts Awards are Canada's largest multi-disciplinary competitions. Launched in 1992, the Applied Arts Awards are the only competition in Canada that recognize the creative work of professionals across the visual communications sector, from image makers to advertising executives to designers.

    Applied Arts magazine is Canada's leading voice for visual communicators, so being published as a winner is your best opportunity to promote your work across Canada and beyond.

    For the 2020 Illustration Awards, entries can be submitted in four main categories:

    • Illustration
    • Motion
    • Young Blood
    • Community

    Community Awards categories are only open to work done by and for Canadians. Young Blood categories are only open to works produced by entrants who have been out of school up to three years.

    Each competition is judged by a different and independent jury of award-winning creative professionals. Winning entries are not ranked and there is no pre-determined quota of winners. So if the jury votes you in, it means your work will be published in one of the Awards Annuals.

    Early Bird: December 20, 2019.
    Final deadline: January 10, 2020.

    Entry fees start at 50 USD.


    Open worldwide to all forms of commissioned, published, unpublished and personal work from professionals and enthusiasts created between January 2019 and January 2020. Only digital entries are accepted for this competition.


    Winners receive:

    • Their work published in print in the Spring 2020 issue
    • A complimentary copy of the Spring 2020 issue
    • Their work published online in the Winners’ Gallery
    • Digital tear sheets of their work
    • A personalized, awards certificate for every winning entry signed by the founder of Applied Arts
    • Their work displayed at related Applied Arts events

    All entrants will be notified in February 2020 via email. At that time, those selected as winning entrants will be required to submit high-res digital files for reproduction in the Illustration & Illustration annual. Winners’ certificates will be mailed separately, after the Illustration & Illustration annual is published.
