Some Applied Arts Awards Deadlines Have Changed

November 21, 2017



As you may know, students at 24 colleges in Ontario are returning to class this week after a five-week faculty strike. Many of these students have not yet had a chance to begin the projects they would have otherwise entered into the Student Awards. And they won't have time to complete their projects before the original posted deadline. We carefully reviewed the feedback we’ve received so far and, rather than rushing the students further, we made the very difficult decision to swap the Student and Design deadlines.


How this affects the Student and Community Awards

The new Student Awards deadline is May 25, 2018. The winners will now be published in the Fall 2018 issue of Applied Arts. The new Community Awards deadline is also May 25, 2018. For entry forms and further information, click here. 


How this affects the Design Awards

All entries for the Design Awards are now due by March 9, 2018. Please note that despite the date change, you still have the same amount of time to enter as you did in the 2017 awards season. You’ll find all of the revised entry information here.


We will be sending out emails containing this information over the next couple of days.


Thank you for your understanding.
