    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.

    These awards are your best opportunity to promote your work to an audience of the best and brightest of the industry as well as to potential clients. Over the past 25 years, the Applied Arts Awards have become an international recognition of creative excellence.

    For the Design Awards 2018, entries can be submitted in ten main categories:

    Packaging Design
    Promotional Design
    Editorial Design
    Typography Design
    Typeface Design
    Broadcast Graphics
    Interactive Design
    Young Blood (open to entrants who have been out of school for five years or less)

    Applied Arts contests are judged by panels of highly regarded industry professionals and experts in a rigorous process. Every entry is scored independently on creative merit, technical excellence and suitability for end use.

    Entry fees start at $60 CAD.


    Open worldwide to all forms of commissioned, published, unpublished and personal work from professionals and enthusiasts created between January 2017 and March 2018. Only digital entries are accepted for this competition.
