MUSE Creative Awards | MUSE Design Awards
New York, NY (Oct 14, 2022) The full list of Season 1 and 2 winners for the 2022 MUSE Creative and Design Awards had been officially announced by the International Awards Associate (IAA), marking the end of the 2022 competition. With well over 10,000 entries received from all over the globe in 2022, the MUSE Creative Awards and MUSE Design Awards resumed their mission to honor creative and design professionals’ excellence.
The MUSE Awards is a series of competitions hosted by the International Awards Associate (IAA), an organization that has continuously strived to honor creatives and designers for their excellence, regardless of their background or experience in the field.
“The IAA team was caught off-guard by the works submitted for the 2022’s MUSE Awards. These entries were truly astounding, and they certainly bring the level of competition up a notch,” Thomas Brandt, spokesperson of IAA, noted. “It’s amazing as always to witness great works lined up in the competition. The team is absolutely in awe of the level of creativity and ingenuity that is in the industry.
By inviting industry professionals to serve as the competition’s jury, IAA upheld their standards of impartiality and enforced industry standards as their assessment criteria. The jurors’ mission was to identify excellence and burgeoning talent amidst the myriad of entries submitted, which would serve as new benchmarks in their respective industries.
Applications were received from as many as 38 countries, but ultimately, only 110 jurors were selected. These esteemed individuals are professionals belonging to renowned companies, representing the industry’s best of the best, such as Founder and Creative Director of RCBD - Ralph Christian Bremenkamp, CEO of Paolo Cappello Design Studio - Paolo Cappello, Design Manager at Lavazza - Florian Seidl, Creative Director of Kre8ive Partners - Mark Turner, 3D Senior Global Packaging Designer at Tom Ford Beauty - Jiaru Lin, Founder of CHAMPARTE - Catherine Yu, Director at DesignAware - Takbir Fatima, Founder / CCO of Cutwater - Chuck McBride, Founder / CEO of Genome - Matthew Fitz-Henry, Chief Creative Officer at White Rabbit Budapest - Levente Kovacs, Founder of AdvAge Advertising & NFT Cube Agency - Maria Afroditi Patsi, Managing Partner at Coley Porter Bell - Jenn Szekely, Marketing Manager & Account Executive at M&A Creative Agency - Carla Neves, and etc.
Each entry was judged using category-relevant industry standards. Blind judging was also employed to enforce impartiality. Under this approach, entries were evaluated on their own without comparison to others. These measures were in place as IAA believes that all works that gain recognition should do so based on their own merits.
As the world’s gaze turned towards the competitions, the 2022 MUSE Creative and Design Awards received entries with names of prominent organizations from all over the world. Some entries were submitted directly by the organizations themselves, whereas some were submitted by entrants who represented them instead. Direct submissions saw familiar names such as DAVID CHANG DESIGN ASSOCIATES INT'L LTD., Prompt Design, Licht Kunst Licht AG, Thinc Design, António Fernandez Architects, Dong Lin Interior Design Construction, Prand, The Ritz-Carlton, W Hotels, Clarks Originals, Duncan Channon, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, Les Ateliers Louis Moinet SA, LWK + PARTNERS, Leica Geosystems - part of Hexagon, Aedas, ACTLD, and Huawei / Aspiegel; whereas indirect submissions included Crunchyroll, Empire State Realty Trust, Doi Chaang Coffee Original Co., Ltd., Super Muffato Gourmet Champagnat, AP (Thailand) Public Company Limited, Toyota Motor North America, SKODA AUTO, Clinique, DHL, Disney, Grey Goose, Warner Bros., The Pokémon Company, Pan Pacific LONDON, IBM, Mailchimp, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche Hungária, and Oxford Nanopore Technologies.
