Open to professionals internationally, Applied Arts Awards are Canada’s largest multi-disciplinary competitions. Launched in 1992, the Applied Arts Awards are the only competition in Canada that recognize the creative work of professionals across the visual communications sector, from image makers to advertising executives to designers.
For the 2022 Photography Awards, entries can be submitted in these main categories:
• Young Blood and Community
Community Awards categories are only open to work done by and for Canadians. Young Blood categories are only open to works produced by entrants who have been out of school up to three years.
Each competition is judged by a different and independent jury of award-winning creative professionals. Winning entries are not ranked and there is no pre-determined quota of winners. So if the jury votes you in, it means your work will be published in one of the Awards Annuals.
Entry fees start at 30 USD.
Open worldwide to all forms of commissioned, published, unpublished and personal work from professionals and enthusiasts created between February 2021 and February 2022. Only digital entries are accepted for this competition.
All entrants will be notified by early-March 2022 via email. Winners receive:
• Their work published in print in the Summer 2022 issue
• A complimentary copy of the Summer 2022 issue
• Their work published online in the Winners’ Gallery
• A personalized, awards certificate for every winning entry signed by the founder of Applied Arts
