Contest info


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 Advertising Awards 2018, entries can be submitted in four main categories:

Interactive Advertising
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 for fresh graduates from school or $75 and above for single entry in the other categories.
