An international competition poised to honor excellence in the planning & execution of digital communications
The award recognizes and celebrates excellence in Websites, Video, Mobile, Social, Animation, Marketing, and Podcasts – across local and international.
Vega celebrates the very best brought forth by the world’s digital architects and craftsmen. Since the competition focuses on excellence, it does not matter whether the submission is from a firm or an individual; a professional or an enthusiast; a veteran or a novice – what matters is the work itself, wherein the details, innovation, creativity, and foresight shine brightest.
Vega accepts digital works and projects, which include advertising, design, interactive content, mobile apps, web design/development, and audio/video productions. The competition’s categories are set to be diverse in order to represent digital culture.
Submitted works must be within a two-year window from their creation, for example, 2020 to current competitive year (2022).
To go beyond the common and to set ourselves apart – that is what excellence strives for. There is a yearning for what’s beyond comforts of the known and safety of the established, something that goes beyond the limits or boundaries of that which we are used to. When the tangible and conceptual coalesce to move people beyond something that is quantifiable, we transcend boundaries.
The Vega team commends those who had gone beyond the normalized practices and had helped the world stay connected in these past two years. In times of uncertainty, your carefully crafted works stand as lighthouses for the wandering denizens of the web, beckoning to them and serving as a banner for those whose interests align to gather under.
Your beacons became symbols of hope, instilling an idea in the hearts of others that they are not alone. Those who rally communed, new societies formed, and the barriers of normalcy were transcended. Will the current status quo remain, or will be break past yet once more into the metaverse? How far will your works take us?
The future is in your hands, you who transcended boundaries.
The Vega Digital Awards competition is conducted in 500+ categories. Work may be entered into more than one category and will be separately evaluated separately in each. All multiple category entries are evaluated accordingly and are eligible for honors.
Entrants may submit their project in one or multiple categories. There is a fee for each category entered. If you are unsure of which category to enter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and an awards representative will assist you.
