The digital landscape has now become the platform of choice for most media.

Anchored by a simple online application process, along with affordable rates from $45, it intends to be approachable to all students of every walk of life, and of differing cultural and academic backgrounds.
Students all over the world are welcome to enter their works, as a bid to compete on an international field and be triumphant.

Vega Student Awards categories available for entry include – Audio & Radio, Content Marketing, Digital Illustration, Digital Marketing, Games, Mobile Apps & Sites, Outstanding Achievements, Podcasts, Social Media, Video/Online Video, Virtual/Remote Experience, VR & 360 Video, Website, and Wild Card.
Entrants have the option to enter individually, or in teams. A small fee for administrative purposes is also charged. Submissions will be assessed in their respective categories by Vega’s jury, which is made up of professionals from diverse backgrounds in differing fields.
The 2021 Vega statuette takes the form of a stoic being, in an attempt to embody the spirit of creatives who won. The statuettes, titled after the stars across the sky, are Canopus (Platinum), Centauri (Gold), and Arcturus (Rose Gold), all serving as representations of significant achievements in the digital media universe, while embodying the hope for our young rising stars.
IAA intends to extend its mission of honoring excellence amongst professionals to budding aspirants. “Talent can only get someone so far in life, and sometimes it just takes more to go further,” Kenjo remarked. “If done right, we would be able to prepare students for a lifetime of passion in the industry. Idealistic as it may be, it is something I wish to see through.”
