Muse Creative Awards

Muse Creative Awards is an international competition for creative professionals who possess the unique ability to inspire with a concept, idea or design - whether through traditional materials or electronic media. More than paychecks drive creative people to perfect their craft, they follow the spark of an inner muse, lighting the path to success with deep knowledge and shining originality.

We know that the brightest lights in our industry are not always in the biggest companies, and we are looking for the muse in your organization that stands out from the crowd. That's the reason Muse Creative Awards recognize advertising excellence in companies and individuals with billing under $30 million annually.

This competition offer participants a superb opportunity to showcase their talents among peers and receive feedback from industry experts. Winners receive long-deserved recognition as proof of their achievements through this highly prestigious award.

In line with our mission to recognize the brilliance of smaller agencies, competition entry is streamlined and affordable. Award certificates and internet medallions are free to winners, with the option of an elegant, custom-designed trophy as a lasting symbol of success and recognition.

Muse Creative Awards Offers:

  • International recognition
  • Reputable blind judging
  • Affordable / Reasonable entry fees
  • Custom trophies
  • No "acceptance fees" for winners
  • Awards announced 45 days after submission deadline

Just as small business is the foundation of the global economy, it is also the heart and soul of local communities, providing services, help and sustenance to those less fortunate.

We value public service and social responsibility, and we both foster and honor the contributions of small agencies who work willingly with nonprofit and charitable organizations. The Muse Awards stand in great part for achievement and service within our industry.

Each year, the generous efforts of professional artists, writers, and designers are recognized through special recognition. Muse entrants are not charged entry fees for work they produce for Corporate Social Responsibility projects.

To be eligible for FREE entry, you must be the representative of the company in order to enter. Agencies, individual or freelancers may not represent the client's company to participate in this category, but may instead participate in the "Non Profit Organizations" category.

  • TESTIMONIES

    Finally, 12 years after we started our careers in Motion Design / Animation, we won our first award. We had elaborate plans to just steal some awards from Studios we work with. \"AWARD STEALING\" was the goal we were after. But now we won one on our own! Sometimes, the thug life just doesn\'t choose you.


    ~ UBER Eck, Germany, Muse Platinum Winner

  • TESTIMONIES

    The win has given me a huge boost in confidence and has encouraged me to pursue even more progression within my design work. In terms of sales, yes it has helped, I have been able to take on clients that I otherwise would have struggled to get through the door and have even had to turn some client work down as I just don\'t have the time now. However the biggest impact the award has had is in myself, my drive has never been so high. I have always wanted to start my own agency and winning the award has made me even more determined that I will achieve this goal.

    Winning isn't everything, but it sure goes a long way to putting a smile on our designers' faces this morning! Point has taken out 2 Gold Muse Creative Awards in product branding and trade show exhibit for our client Slida.
