They also have their work published in our Student Awards Annual and online in the Applied Arts Winners Gallery – seen by more than 50,000 influential creative professionals working in the visual communications arena.

"I won an Applied Arts Award as a student at AU Arts, and it was a very exciting boost in my early career."

Judging Process

All work is entered digitally and judged digitally. There are no hard copies. Therefore, please read our Helpful Tips, in the 2020 Entry Kit to ensure that you prepare your work to be viewed in the best possible way.

A separate jury of senior creatives is chosen for each competition and does not include anyone from Applied Arts staff. All Judges must be invited.

The judges are divided into groups, with each viewing a different and random group of entries. Each judge reviews and scores entries separately. Judges do not confer or discuss their work, and there is only one round of judging.

Entries are given one total score, based on three criteria only:

  1. Creative merit
  2. Technical excellence
  3. Suitability for end use in the category into which it is entered

NOTE: Entries submitted to the high school categories are judged with the level of experience and available resources taken into consideration.

Judging FAQ

Will the judges see my descriptions during the judging? Judges do not see the creative descriptions you have entered. These are only for publishing in the Awards Annual and online Winners Gallery. If you feel your submission needs a description, you may include a short description with your assets (no more than 50 words or 10s for broadcast/video).


Deadlines

Extended Deadline: May 29, 2020

We can grant short extensions, but we cannot guarantee one. Endeavour to have your entry finalized by the posted deadline date.


Eligibility

The student competition is international and open to post-secondary (under-graduate and graduate studies) and high-school students. Only digital entries are accepted for this competition.

High-school students may only apply to the high-school categories. The rest of the categories are for post-secondary students.

You may submit any work completed either as a school requirement or independently (personal work) during the course of your studies, during any year of your schooling, as long as you have not submitted the work to the Student Awards competition before.

If you graduated from a post-secondary school within the past year, you may submit work completed during your studies to the 2020 Student Awards.

Eligibility FAQ

I'm a high school student. Can I enter? Yes. There are a limited number of categories available for high-school students in the Student Awards competitions. The rest of the categories are open only to post-secondary students attending a college, university or other type of art school.

I am currently studying a post-graduate/graduate program, am I still eligible to enter? Yes. You are still eligible to enter the Student Awards competition.

Am I still eligible to enter if I recently graduated? If you've graduated in the past year you are still eligible to enter the Student Awards. You may also qualify to submit work to the Young Blood categories in the professional competitions. Please see the specific discipline for eligibility.

Categories FAQ

Can I enter a piece in multiple categories? Yes. In your account on the My Entries home page, click "Copy" on any entry you've created. Or, after you've finished an entry, click "Submit in another category" and a duplicate entry will be created with all the same information. Be sure to change the discipline and entry category to the new one you want to submit to.

Which category does my entry belong in? Often the best way to understand a category is to see previous work that won in that category. Check our online Winner's Gallery for examples. If you still have questions regarding our categories or require assistance in selecting the appropriate category, contact awards@appliedartsmag.com.

NOTE: Applied Arts reserves the right to move an entry to another category if we feel it unsuitable or incorrectly categorized.

Is my entry a single or a series? A single means one piece, and series means you are submitting more than one piece of the same project to a maximum of five. If an entry contains more than the specified images, we will either contact you to split the submission into multiple entries, or choose which ones will be judged, so it's best to stick to the indicated numbers for single or series.

What is a Complete Single/Complete Series: 'Complete' refers to a multiple-page entry, such as a book or a publication. More images are typically required to properly show it and judge it.


Entry Material Requirements

All entries are submitted digitally only. Hi-res, final files are to be submitted for judging. These files will be used for publication, if selected for the Annual.

Acceptable formats:

Please also review the SUPPORTING FILES section below.

Stills

Motion / Online Video / Broadcast Video

File Limitations

Single – One piece. Maximum of 1 file can be uploaded.
Series – 2-3 pieces from the same project. Maximum of 3 files may be uploaded.
Complete Series – 2-3 books/publications. Upload up to 3 files, with up to 6 pages per each book.
Campaign – Up to 6 pieces from an entire campaign. A maximum number 6 files can be uploaded.

NOTE: URLs with links to the work counts towards one file upload.

French or other languages: you must submit a translation to English with your entry files for judging purposes. Upload the supporting documents to the supporting documents sub-section of the ENTRY MATERIALS section (Step 4 of the entry form).

Helpful Tips

Multiple-page PDFs are preferred over multiple, individual JPG files.

Use a multi-page PDF to ensure the judges can easily get the full picture, at a glance, on screen. We recommend entries be curated to the maximum number of images indicated for each category, except in the following instances: show inside pages, multiple views of 3D pieces and zoom in on small print or details. Also show work in the context of how it was seen by the audience, especially in cases for advertising work.

Including English translations or descriptions for judges within your multi-page PDF makes it easier for judges.

Look at your entry on a smaller-screen desktop. A judge may be viewing it at that size, so take that into consideration and show zoom-ins on detail.

Entry Material FAQ

Can I submit a hard copy or disk? No. Only digitally-uploaded entries are accepted.

The program crashed. Did I lose everything? No - you will be saving your work as you go through each section of the entry form. If the program crashes as you are completing a certain section, it may not have saved.

The file I uploaded won't show me a preview. Why? You may not see the image preview if you haven't followed the specs outlined in ENTRY MATERIAL REQUIREMENTS. Check your file and re-upload. If you continue to experience difficulties, contact awards@appliedartsmag.com.

I uploaded the wrong file. Can I change it? Yes. You can resubmit images at any time until payment is made. Click the 'Remove' beside the appropriate file and re-upload your image. Note: Thumbnail images may not correctly display your new image. You may need to close your browser and log back into my entries for the changes to show.

On the online entry form the fields for the Winners Information, Description of Entry and Creative Credits are for publication use only and are not visible to the judges. Please review this information carefully – it will be published if your entry wins.

Winners' Information
The 'Winner' field is the primary individual you want to be credited on the project.

Description of Entry: The intention of the description is to provide an overall creative summary of the entry piece or project to be printed in the Annual. The description is limited to a maximum of 500 characters (including spaces).

Helpful Tips

Descriptions for the judges are not recommended, except where specifically noted. The judges do not see the typed Description of Entry – they are for publication in the Annual.

Creative Credits

Credits are a summary of the individuals or companies that have worked on the project.

A credit can be designated with an individual's name or an organization. A credit role is a job function (i.e. instructor, school, or program).

IMPORTANT NOTE: A maximum of six credit roles will be published in the Annual, however, all creative credits you entered will appear in the online Winners Gallery.

REMINDER: The WINNERS' INFORMATION (including the Description of Entry) and CREATIVE CREDITS should be entered at the time of submission, as we only allow for a very short window of time to edit or add these once winners are notified.

Credits automatically get saved to your account to be used for any competition. You can either select a saved credit for your entry or you can add a new credit. To change the order of the credits, change the number from the sort column and select 'Update Sort' when you are finished.

NOTE: It is recommended that credits be completed at the time of submission. Please review your credits preview carefully, particularly the credits to be the printed in the Annual. If your entry is selected to be published in the Annual there will be a very limited time period to edit or add to your credits.

Step 5: Certificate information

You will receive one certificate for each winning entry. Complete the winning company/individual and/or client you wish to appear on the certificate. The entry title and the category the project won in will also be included on the certificate. You will have the opportunity to order additional certificates once winners have been notified.

A submitted entry is not final and entered in the competition until you pay for it. You may edit an entry at any time until it's been paid. Once payment has been processed, it is final.


Payment & Refunds

Entry fees vary. Check each Awards competition for entry fees. Only once you have paid for an entry is it considered final and officially entered and cannot be changed. You can pay for all or only some of your entries at any given time – just select which entries you want to pay for.

The payment option is on the My Entries home page. Payments can be made by Interac, Visa, MasterCard or American Express (Amex on Canadian payments only at this time). For U.S. and foreign entries, submit fees in US funds.

We only accept cheque or direct deposit in special circumstances. These cases must be pre-approved. Contact awards@appliedartsmag.com with your request.

If you are entering a piece as both a Single and as part of a Series, ensure there are two separate entries on My Entries—one for the Series and one for the Single. Keep a record of your submissions.

Payment FAQ

Can I submit more entries after paying? Yes. In My Entries, you will have the opportunity to submit additional entries even if others already entered have been paid. This will simply generate a new confirmation email when you complete your entries with payment.

I want to change something after I've paid. What do I do? Once an entry is paid, you cannot change the category, entry format, entry title, description of entry or creative credits. A paid entry is final, so check it carefully before proceeding to the payment fields. If declared chosen a winner, you will be given a small window of time to add or edit information.

Can I get a refund? Entries are non-refundable; costs cover administration, processing and the judging of the entry. A submission of entry acknowledges acceptance of these rules.

I'm getting error messages when I try to pay. What do I do? If you entered your payment information incorrectly on your first attempt, any subsequent attempts would be declined, even if you change your payment type. Close your browser and log back into My Entries. You should now be able to proceed with payment. If you continue to experience difficulties, contact awards@appliedartsmag.com.

How do students enter and pay? Students can enter on their own, or teachers may submit on their behalf. If you are a teacher with a large volume of student entries to submit and would like to organize payment through your school, you can contact awards@appliedartsmag.com for a School Group Code.
