We believe that together, we can all rise."
Anticipation is building ahead of this year's Muse Awards, as seen by the breadth and depth of past years' submissions. Entries in all categories will compete for a freshly re-designed trophy with Platinum Gold or Rose Gold finish, depending on the level of win determined by an elite panel of judges.
Ong noted that the March 2018 deadline is especially beneficial for Muse Award recipients. "Winning so early in 2018 can have a greater impact on career and reputations all year long," he said.

In addition to the award, and in the spirit of "Rise Together," small grants may be given to firms who personify social responsibility and service to their communities. "As the world moves toward global initiatives and a global economy, we want to reward excellent work that communicates in ways that are universal," Ong said.
