You've got ideas.
Now get them noticed.

The Applied Arts Awards competition is an international recognition of creative excellence with a history of more than 25 years. Applied Arts 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.

The Applied Arts Awards are the only competition in Canada that not only recognizes the creative work of professionals across the visual communications sector, but also establishes the industry standard in the photography, illustration, design, advertising and interactive disciplines.

Current Issue

The Winter issue of Applied Arts magazine focuses on the cornerstone of advertising – creativity. Our cover story asks who and what inspires some of the leading Canadian Creative Directors while our columnists delve deeper into what it means to be a "creative", how to be creative in the face of austerity and what creative tools and assets can an agency offer that can't be obtained through in-housing.

Our most popular issue of the year offers over 115 pages of creative inspiration from industry-leading advertising agencies. The SickKids VS campaign, which transformed the category of giving, was created by Cossette and is featured on this cover.
