Applied Arts 2020 Illustration Awards now is over!
CALL FOR ENTRIES: Applied Arts 2020 Illustration Awards has been recently opened for entries, open worldwide to all forms of commissioned, published, unpublished and personal work from professionals and enthusiasts.
Applied Arts 2020 Illustration Awards is an annual illustration competition recently opened for entries.
Launched in 1992, the Applied Arts Awards have become an international recognition of creative excellence, and we are Canada’s only competitions that recognize the work of both professionals and students across the visual communications spectrum, from image-makers to advertising, marketing and graphic designers. This illustration competition is open to all forms of commissioned, published, unpublished and personal work from professionals and enthusiasts created between January 2019 and January 2020 (but not entries that have been submitted into last year’s competition).
There are six main categories:
• Young Blood Illustration
• Young Blood Motion
• Community Motion
You can submit your work as a one piece or series. A single means one piece, and series means you are submitting more than one piece of the same project to maximum of 3.
Only digital entries are accepted for this competition. If you wish to show your entry as both the individual image(s) and in context, create one multi-page PDF and include both.
In this competition, the jury is only judging the images, not the design or art direction (entrants who want those areas looked at should enter them into the Design and Advertising disciplines of the Applied Arts Awards).
To all entries will be given one total score, based on three criteria only:
• Creative merit
• Technical excellence
• Suitability for end use in the category into which it is entered
All entrants will be notified in February 2019 via email. At that time, those selected as winning entrants will be required to submit high-res digital files for reproduction in the Illustration & Illustration annual. Winners’ certificates will be mailed separately, after the Illustration & Illustration annual is published.
All entrants will be notified by mid-February 2020 via email. .
Entry fees start at $40 CAD and very depends of the submission category.
