Students in 24 countries will have the opportunity to test their skills in a number of creative endeavors and, perhaps, get a jump-start on their careers with a prestigious award from Adobe Systems.
Adobe has this date issued a call for entries for the sixth annual Adobe Design Achievement Awards for promising students in graphic design, photography, illustration, animation, digital filmmaking and computer arts.
The competition is open to students using Adobe software like Creative Suite 2 for their projects. There will be a total of nine categories. Originality and effectiveness in communicating objectives will be the main criteria for judging, the company said.
Judging will be in May and finalists will be contacted shortly afterwards. Finalists will receive a trip to Toronto for the final awards. Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in Toronto on July 20. Each winner receives $5,000 in cash and a selection of Adobe products.
Judges include Leslie Beeler of Second Story; Rodolphe Guenoden of Dreamworks Animation; Diti Katona of Concrete Design Communications; Masamichi Udagawa of Antenna Design New York Inc; and Jan Wilker of karlssonwilker, inc.
