2021 International Vega Student Awards

The International Awards Associate (IAA) is calling for entries to the 2021 International Vega Student Awards — a brand-new awards program from their Vega series.

Vega Student Awards intends to inspire young talents to ride the wave of this new era and make a name for themselves before approaching the professional world.

Students all over the world are welcome to enter their works, as a bid to compete on an international field and be triumphant. Entries must fall within a two-year window from their creation – 2019 to present.

Competition categories for 2021 include:

  • Outstanding Achievements

The Vega Student Awards is open to new and emerging digital creatives aged 18 or over without prior or significant experience in a paid creative role.

To enter as a student, you must be enrolled full or part-time on a recognized Higher Education level course, anywhere in the world, on 1 January 2021. Being a student means you are automatically eligible and do not need to match any other criteria.
