Great news ahead of the long weekend! The deadline for entry in the 2017 Advertising Awards has been extended past this Friday to April 21, 2017. You now have one more week to put together your entries!


Winners receive their work published in the September issue of Applied Arts, read by 46,000 creative professionals, and online in our Winners Gallery, Awards Archive and tablet edition. Plus much more!


We’re seeing tons of thoughtful work popping up in our broadcast and interactive advertising categories, but we wanted to take a minute to celebrate the magic of print.
