Applied Arts introduces new program
Since 1992 the Applied Arts Awards has recognized the work of visual communicators, from advertisers to designers, and this year it is launching a community program for small businesses and freelancers across Canada.

“Every year, we receive countless submissions from talented creative professionals across the country and we are delighted to feature their work,” Applied Arts publisher Rosetta Heckhausen said. “But we often only see work that has a large reach. We know there is a huge market out there of creative professionals in communities across Canada who do wonderful work that we don’t get the chance to feature.”
The new program will be launched on November 25, along with the 2017 call to entry.

Community celebrates creativity in local markets, and work will be evaluated according to population grouping by a jury of senior-level creative professionals. While each entry is still scored individually, the judges will also consider the work within the context of the market size. There are three divisions available for entry:

•    Population Less than 100,000
•    Population Between 100,001 and 500,000
•    Population Above 500,000*
Winners of the inaugural Community program will be published in the March issue of Applied Arts magazine, (currently celebrating its 30th anniversary) as well as online in the Winners’ Gallery and Awards Archive.
