Passion and Creativity Take Center Stage at 10th Annual Adobe Design Achievement Awards

MAX 2010 got off to an inspiring start last night in Los Angeles. The skill, imagination and raw talent of dozens of art and design students from around the world were on display as we recognized the finalists and winners of the 10th annual Adobe Design Achievement Awards (ADAA).

For a decade, the ADAAs have honored the most talented and promising student graphic designers, photographers, illustrators, animators, digital filmmakers, developers and computer artists from the world’s top higher-education institutions. Since the ADAAs began in 2001, close to 20,000 students across 52 countries have participated in this competition.

This year’s finalists were, in a word, phenomenal. I was completely blown away by the sophistication and power of all the finalists’ entries and the graciousness of the winners as they accepted their awards. Since words can’t quite do it justice, I’d encourage you to check out the ADAA Gallery, a digital compilation exhibiting the work of all the past winners and finalists from the last decade.

If you missed the event, we invite you to look through the 2010 Program Guide that highlights our partner, Icograda; our prestigious judges and Master of Ceremonies; and our student finalists. For a full list of the winners and a recap of the evening click here. There’s also a video that reflects on the importance of events like ADAA.

We feel fortunate that the ADAA competition attracts the best student designers in the world, and that we have been able to shine a light on these future creative leaders.
