Today, the Adobe Design Achievement Awards (ADAA) in partnership with ico-D, International Council of Design, announce the 2015 Session I Semifinalists. Celebrating 15 consecutive years, the ADAA contest seeks to discover and recognize inspiring creative projects from student designers, photographers, animators, and digital filmmakers.
“This year’s initial entries are simply amazing. Adobe is thrilled to be able to highlight student work from around the world,” said Tacy Trowbridge, Adobe’s Education Programs lead. “I look forward to the next round of entries and to honoring the winners at Adobe MAX this fall.”
Higher education students from around the world are invited to submit their best work. The contest received 524 entries during Session I, from students representing 25 countries. 178 entries were chosen for the Semifinalist round and are now being shown in the ADAA Live Entries Gallery, which demonstrates and celebrates the immense variety of work submitted by every participating student in the contest.
The semifinalist judging panel is comprised of 29 professionals active in the ico-D, International Council of Design community. Panelists hail from 10 countries including the UK, Netherlands, Canada, Dubai, Poland, Israel, Germany and South Korea. Semifinalist entries will be judged at the Adobe offices in San Francisco in August. Category winners will be announced in September, and Grand Prize Winners will be announced during Adobe MAX to be held in Los Angeles, October 3-7, 2015.
The ADAA 2015 Session II call for entries is still open. The contest offers 13 categories for students to compete in; including game design, exhibition design, and social impact. Students and recent graduates may submit up to three times per category. The final deadline is June 19 2015.
