What have you left unexpressed?
Within the expanse of one’s mind, that which is unexplored is far greater than what has been materialized. In every decision we make within every instance available to us, our thoughts stand a chance to come to life. Now, what if your every conscious decision is dedicated towards expressing your untapped creativity?
The MUSE Awards honors those who are unbridled in their expression; who create with every fibre of their being. They raise the bar and define the path forward, creating a benchmark for all to follow after.
MUSE is where those who break through the mundane flock to; for those who speak with their works despite the adversity and uncertainty. The MUSE Awards honors you and your uninhibited expressions, through which you create waves of influence in the world today.
Unleash yourself, speak your mind through your craft, and be crowned a MUSE.
The MUSE Awards is designed for the convenience of our entrants by way of online registrations and submissions.

*Note: Cash prizes are not cumulative. Only one cash prize can be awarded to each winner with the highest available prize applied.
For example, if a winner is awarded both MUSE Photographer of the Year (Professional Category) and Category Winner of the Year, they will only receive the $3000 cash prize from the MUSE Photographer of the Year and not $100 from winning the latter. First placed Category Winners can only receive one $100 cash prize even if they win the title in multiple categories.
If you submitted your entries through an award agent and won either MUSE Photographer or Category Winner of the Year, IAA will proceed to issue the cash prize to the closest representative of the winning entry, the award agent, to collect it on your behalf. Please liaise with your award agent on the matter of cash prizes. Cash prizes will be issued either to the winners or award agent within a month after the announcement of results.
