2021 Early Career and Emerging Talent Awards Longlist

APA Awards Competitions News

We have been absolutely blown away by the submissions for the first-ever APALMANAC Awards – especially the Early Career and Emerging Talent category.

For being relatively new to the field, so many of you out there are making incredible work that is up there with even the most seasoned pros. We sent off the mammoth amount of entries for this category to the judges, and have begun tallying up their selections. That leads us to the Early Career and Emerging Talent awards longlist, representing the best of the best in this category.

To keep this page from loading at a glacial pace, we’ve just included one staff favorite photo from each longlisted submission. Once the winners are announced, we’ll share their full submissions.
