Creative Quarterly 53: Call for Entries

New Awards, New Fees

As we head towards our 51st call for entries we’ve made some changes to our shows.

We’ll continue our quarterly competitions and winners become finalists in our year-end 100 Best Annual. Quarterly winners will be featured in print and our online gallery, receive a free publication and have a choice to receive a printed certificate. Honorable Mentions will be displayed online.

100 Best Gallery Exhibit

100 Best winners will be shown in a New York City gallery with an artist reception. And starting this year the 100 Best Annual will be distributed worldwide. Winners will be promoted online and in print as well as being exhibited in our online 100 Best gallery.

New Entry Fees

To broaden our shows we’re restructuring the entry fees: $30 for up to three images—perfect for single entries—each additional image will be $10. For $45 you can enter up to six images, either single or series entries.

For students, post graduates and recent graduates: $15 for up to three images, $45 for up to nine images.

Categories and Eligibility

Open to all art directors, designers, illustrators, photographers and fine artists in all countries. Categories: Advertising, graphic design, photography, illustration and fine art. Professional and student entries are judged separately.


Our quarterly shows are judged by an editorial staff of award-winning graphic designers, a former judge for Communication Arts annual and represented in The Graphic Eye: Photographs by Graphic Designers from around the Globe, a judge for the Society of Illustrators, Print Regional Design Annual and regional and national advertising and design competitions. 100 Best will be judged by industry professionals.

Named one of the top 100 art and design publications in the world, Creative Quarterly accepts professional and student entries from all parts of the globe. For more information check our FAQ page.
