Colour World Genius Awards 2024 are now closed

The Colour World Genius Awards 2024 (CWGA’s) are now closed! The only independent awards event to honour the work of colourists in the UK. The awards are owned by us, meaning you can be confident of fair judging no matter what brand of colour used. Our jury is made up of leading colourists (usually comprising 40+ judges) to smooth out any bias. It’s fighting fair! The CWGAs celebrate you, the colourist. We champion your skills, your attitude and your genius.

This is the 6th year, and there are 10 trophies to compete for. The process is straight forward and you can upload your entries online.
