The Adobe Design Achievement Awards Commitment to Globally Elevating Student Work

The Adobe Design Achievement Awards offers students an opportunity to gain global recognition for their creative work.

The ADAA seeks to elevate higher education students for their creative achievements, through tiered levels of recognition and participation. By providing a platform rich in levels of recognition, more students are included and empowered to gain valuable visibility for their work on a global scale.

Layers of Recognition: Students who achieve Semifinalist status in the contest are featured on ADAA Live, and receive a digital ADAA certificate to add to their professional profile. Honorable Mention recipients receive a digital ADAA certificate, and are featured on the ADAA Gallery Honorable Mention List. Finalists and winners receive an ADAA certificate, and are featured on the ADAA Gallery, with a unique URL to their biography, as well as contest prizes.

Adobe helps elevate student work to a global community, by showcasing examples for every ADAA participant.

Every participating student is a valuable member of the ADAA community. Claire Erwin, Senior Manager, Adobe Education Community added, “We want to demonstrate to our educational community that every student’s creative contribution is important. The ADAA can be a powerful platform for students to scale their level of recognition, as their skills and creative understandings develop during their education. Students can submit multiple times, to find themselves reaching new heights of recognition through the contest.”

For the first time in the history of the ADAA contest, every participant is able to view their work on ADAA Live. Participants who complete their profile and submission process, will have three thumbnails posted of their work to ADAA Live. Students are able to immediately see their name, institution, and images of their work on the real-time website.

 

Mathias Vogel, Creative Director and Co-founder of LABOR, a design firm in Germany, designed the ADAA Live tool. Vogel commented, “The ADAA Live tool allows for students, friends, and professors, to search for creative work by title, country, institution, and participant. We feel it is important for members of the ADAA community to gain a real sense of one another. The community is empowered to watch itself grow and evolve in real time.”
