The Visual Artist Awards organization is dedicated to lead the industry in recognizing pioneers and leaders in the field of projection mapping, motion graphics, and augmented reality. The Visual Artist Awards elevates this rapidly advancing field by honoring deserving talent, individual and corporate, as they research, innovate, test, and apply creativity, technology, and intellectual firepower to move photons in ways that spawn enthusiasm and enchantment for wide-eyed spectators in venues around the world.



Established to be the primary platform of recognition for contemporary visual artists – and aiming to generate a solid network for cultural development – The Visual Artist Awards ceremony pays homage to the best visual artists in the world in one of the most exciting and emerging locations of the Americas, Miami Beach.

Fine white sand, colorful Art Deco buildings, an eclectic mix of world-class boutiques, galleries and luxury stores, a 24/7 culinary hot spot, award winning parties, all under the starlight of tropical nights.

And that is just the beginning.

The “American Riviera” is more than a world-class lifestyle. Miami and the beaches is home to many of the largest art fairs in the United States, the largest concentration of international banks in the United States, a burgeoning tech community, world-class museums, and a growing financial hub. Miami and Miami Beach are front row center on the international stage.

The future is here. The future is now.  The future is visual.



Like other major award ceremonies around the globe, the Visual Artist Award pays homage to industry leaders with the winners each receiving a cherished award. The Visual Artist Award, The “Vizzie”, is handcrafted from solid bronze, chromium plated and polished to a mirrored finish. Mounted on a block of solid black granite the coveted award stands over 12 inches tall.
