2024 Salazar Awards

Celebrating up-and-coming designers making their mark

​The Salazar Awards are presented annually by DesCan Vancouver and founding sponsor Metropolitan Fine Printers to talented and inspiring DesCan student members currently enrolled in design programs in BC.

​Established in 1985 by DesCan Vancouver (formerly GDC BC), the award was created in honour of Enrique Salazar. Mr. Salazar was one of the founding members of GDC BC and served as its national representative for two years. He was a partner in Salazar Graphics, and taught graphic design at Capilano College until his death in June of 1985. Students receive awards in four categories: Branding, Print, Interactive/UX/UI, and Video/Motion. Supported by MET Printers, $500 is awarded to the top student in each category.
