The 2020 Applied Arts Advertising Awards

Winners Announcement

November 13, 2020


Thank you to everyone who entered the 2020 Advertising Awards. Your hard work hasn't gone unnoticed.

Email notifications were sent out on November 11. Congratulations to our newest Applied Arts Awards winners!

Today we are celebrating all work submitted to the 2020 Applied Arts Advertising Awards, and special kudos to those that were selected as winners by our judging panel.

Creativity wasn't paused this year, in fact, the industry has never worked harder, and that was evident. That commitment and dedication during these difficult times hasn’t gone unnoticed. For 30 years, Applied Arts have recognized creative excellence and, this year, even more than ever, we wanted to support the industry by recognizing all the great work created over the past year.

We may be celebrating slightly differently, as this is the first time in our history that we will not publish an Advertising Awards Annual, but all winning entries will be promoted digitally – both on our online Winners Gallery and social media in December. We will be back publishing an Awards Annual in 2021.

A huge thank-you goes to our 16 amazing judges from across North America. Our judges took time from their already packed schedules to help to determine this year’s winners.

Finally, a big shout-out goes out to our award sponsors, VISTEK and our association partners CAPIC, GDC and RGD for their support.
