Adobe Youth Voices Aspire Awards Winners Announced!

It’s been a whirlwind spring for everyone who has participated in the Adobe Youth Voices Aspire Awards, and we’ve been amazed and humbled by the impactful media submitted by youth from around the world.

This was the first global youth media competition of its kind, and we are honored that we had the opportunity to provide a forum for young people to demonstrate their creativity and skill, and to share a message about the issues impacting their lives and communities. Award winners stretched from coast to coast and represented nearly every continent on the globe, making this a truly international experience.

It’s also been a pleasure to work with a panel of talented judges, which included educators, visionaries, and youth media peers. As supporting partners, Samsung, Dell & MTV Act contributed generously to our prize packages and added tremendous excitement for our participants.

And now, at long last, we’re proud to announce the winners of the AYV Aspire Awards!
