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

Applied Arts is serving up 200+ pages of inspiration! The new issue is a double award's annual combining the winners from our 2020 Design & Student Awards competitions.

This issue continues our over-arching theme of 2020 'through the eyes of the client'. Our editorial contributors examine relationships - what characteristics are critical to developing a successful client-designer relationship and how that relationship can dictate the creative work.
