Adobe is pleased to announce the 2014 Adobe Design Achievement Awards Semifinalists for Session I! Running for fourteen consecutive years, the ADAA global contest continues to receive thousands of quality submissions every year, maintaining its reputation for recognizing the best creative work of student designers, photographers, animators, and digital filmmakers.
Talented students from around the world are invited to submit their work, hoping to achieve Semifinalist status, or better. There were 363 Session I Semifinalist entries selected, from 1066 submitted entries. The first session of Semifinalists hail from twenty countries, including Indonesia, India, New Zealand, Great Britain, Scotland, France, Germany, Italy, China, South Korea, Poland, Spain, Brazil, and Mexico.
Semifinalist entries will be judged in New York City during two intense hands-on judging days, August 11 and 12, at the Adobe corporate offices. Finalists will be announced in September. Grand Prize winners, and winners of each of the eleven categories, will be announced at Adobe MAX, in the Community Pavilion, October 4 – 8 in Los Angeles, California.
The semifinalist judging panel is comprised of 23 professional designers, artists, and animators, contributing to a variety of artistic disciplines. The selection panelists represent eight different countries, including Mexico, Canada, the US, the UK, Israel and Germany.
There is still time for higher education students to get their work in front of the the judging panel. Session II of the ADAA contest is open. International students are invited to submit their work for consideration, during this extended call-for-entries period.
Higher education students are encouraged to continue to submit their work until June 20. Students who’ve already achieved semifinalist status may continue to submit more entries. Every participant is eligible to submit up to three entries per category, or a total of thirty-three entries during the duration of the annual contest.
