Broad Categories:

Young Blood - Professionals that have graduated within the last 3 years may apply to the Young Blood categories.
Community - For Canadian artists and studios working in smaller communities or with smaller businesses or budgets, to help them get the recognition they deserve without competing directly with big-budget projects and studios/agencies.
