An international competition poised to honor excellence in the planning & execution of digital communications


The Vega Digital Awards highlights the vital role of digital pioneers in an ever-changing digital landscape.

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, 2021 to current competitive year (2023).

2023 Vega Statuette

Vanguards of the Digital Space

Stoic and prepared, the Vega statuettes exude the very essence of what it takes to be a frontrunner in a digital age. Crafted thoughtfully by the International Awards Associate (IAA), the statuette depicts the figure of a warrior, who’s postured upright with their shield up, ready to take on whatever comes their way.

The statuette’s face is undiscernible under their helmet, signifying how those who go further do not always do so to seek glory. The statuettes come in three versions, representing the three winning levels – Platinum, Gold, and Silver.

May these statuettes honor the vanguards of the digital space.
