• Participation in the competition is "absolutely" free: no need for any payment to be made either before, or after. There is no registration fee, neither in case of victory, classification, nor of course, in case of non-placement; there will be no additional expenses to pay for any additional event or disclosure. Openart is personally committed to making active the above

• The competition jury (unique reward in this field with this characteristic) is composed entirely by students and former students of graphic design and visual communication of our institute! This feature of the award creates a concrete bridge between the world of education and the job market; this will enable students to directly experience a professional job and at the same time enabling the professionals to test their creativity on a jury very communicative and with a particular attention to the new trends in graphics, characteristics of the students of the courses of graphic and visual communication.

• Openartaward is a completely independent prize from any sector body, it has no profit-making purpose, but, on the contrary, originally has a purely educational purpose. It does not access (and does not want to access, to maintain maximum transparency and independence) to any public or private subsidy and sponsorships tend to cover only organizational expenses.


• In the 2018 edition, openartAward was the prize for advertising with the highest number of participations and still remains the only international award in Italy!

• OPENARTAWARD - Prize to advertising (tomorrow's creative people rewards today's creative people)", contest reserved to those companies interested in communication and marketing.


• The award ceremony will take place, as every year, in a prestigious location at the height of the importance of the award, during the month of October 2019.

The exhibition of the participating works and a series of collateral events at the event (conferences and meetings on the themes of graphics and advertising communication) will take place in the same venue chosen for the award ceremony.

As every year, it is expected the presence of civil authorities that will deliver some plates of particular significance, as well as the presence of numerous employees of the world of journalism and entertainment.

• The award covers the highest level of prestige as it has already proved a participation and visibility success in past editions, it is "certified" by the sponsorship of numerous institutional bodies


• No other advertising prize can boast institutional awards of this level such as to make "ONLY" OPENARTAWARD the ONLY PRIZE of the institutionally recognized sector!


• OPENARTAWARD is therefore today the most sought-after award in the advertising category and is, among other things, the only one that does not include any registration fee for participants

• The partnership of the past openartAward editions.
