Can I enter a piece in multiple categories? Yes. In your account on the My Entries home page, click “Copy” on any entry you’ve created. Or, after you’ve finished an entry, click “Submit in another category” and a duplicate entry will be created with all the same information. Be sure to change the discipline and entry category to the new one you want to apply to.
Which category does my entry belong in? Often the best way to understand a category is to see previous work that won in that category. Check our Winner’s Gallery for examples. If you still have questions regarding our categories or require assistance in selecting the appropriate category, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is my entry a single or a series? A single means one piece, and series means you are submitting more than one piece of the same campaign or project to a maximum of three (Design, Advertising and Student competitions) or of five (Photography and Illustration competitions). If an entry contains more than the specified images, we will either contact you to split the submission into multiple number of entries, or choose which ones will be judged, so it’s best to stick to the indicated numbers for single and series.
What is the Young Blood category? Young Blood is a series of categories open only to entrants who have been out of school up to a certain number of years (three for Photography and Illustration, and five for Design and Advertising). As with all categories, they are judged on creative excellence, technical merit and suitability for end use, but the jury takes into account the level of professional experience. You will be required to specify the name of the Young Blood entrant to qualify.
What is the Community category? Community was one of our newest Awards programs, launched in 2017 to help artists working on smaller local clients earn the recognition they deserve without competing directly with the big agencies/studios with large budgets. This year the Community Awards have been rolled into each of the four programs (Photography, Illustration, Design and Advertising). Eligibility, you must work in a small market or the client must be a small business.
