Judges & Scoring
As of 2018, all Applied Arts Awards programs are judged online. We no longer accept hard copies for any competition.
Applied Arts contests are judged by panels of highly regarded industry professionals and experts in a rigorous process. Every entry is scored independently on creative merit, technical excellence and suitability for end use. Discussion is not permitted and judges must abstain from voting for their own work. Entries that meet our pre-determined cut-off score are published. Check back soon for our list of confirmed judges.
All entrants will be notified in April 2018 via email. At that time, those selected as winning entrants will be required to submit high-res digital files for reproduction in the Design annual. Winners’ certificates will be mailed separately, after the Design annual is published.
What do winners receive?
- Their work published in print in the Summer 2018 issue
- A complimentary copy of the Summer 2018 issue

- A personalized, embossed awards certificate for every winning entry signed by noted designer Georges Haroutiun, the founder of Applied Arts
