2022 MUSE Creative Awards

The MUSE Creative Awards is a part of the MUSE Awards Program, which was created by the International Awards Associate (IAA) in 2015. IAA’s inception was based on a mission to honor, promote and encourage creativity by providing a new standard of excellence for evaluating media design production and distribution. IAA’s mission has largely shaped MUSE Creative Awards’ goals.
At its core, MUSE Creative Awards is an international competition for creative professionals who inspire others to greater heights. With their concepts, ideas or designs, these creatives light a fire in others to strive further, thus becoming a muse.

The MUSE Awards Association accepts entries from agencies, graphic design companies, web and digital entities, production companies, and freelancers. We welcome submissions from all over the world. Entries must have been produced after January 1, 2020

Deadline: August 18, 2022
