Launched in 1992, the Applied Arts Awards are the only competition in Canada that recognizes 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.


All Applied Arts Awards programs now accept only digital submissions. We no longer accept hard copies for Design and Advertising.

If you’re looking for the Interactive Awards, they’ve been hosted within the Design and Advertising programs since the 2017 awards season. You’ll find more interactive categories than ever!
