Adobe Issues Call for Entries to 2014 Adobe Design Achievement Awards

ADAA 2014Attention creative students! Today Adobe announced the call-for-entries for the fourteenth annual Adobe Design Achievement Awards (ADAA). This prestigious competition honors the most talented and promising student graphic designers, photographers, illustrators, animators, digital filmmakers, developers and computer artists from around the world. Students are encouraged to submit their most creative projects for a chance to have their work recognized globally.

The ADAA competition is for individuals and groups who produce work using Adobe’s world-class creative tools and services such as Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. Submissions are eligible in one of 11 categories from three segments: Traditional Media; Interactive Experience; and Motion and Video. Students will have a chance to showcase their talent and have their work judged by an international panel of design experts who will choose the category and Grand Prize winners. Winners will be announced in October in conjunction with the Adobe MAX event to be held in Los Angeles.

This year, the ADAA will also provide mentorship opportunities identified by ADAA’s co-sponsor Icograda – the International Council of Communication Design. Once a student submits their entry, they become eligible for mentorship selection. Fifty students will be chosen to receive a 3-month mentorship in 2014, with an additional 450 students to receive a portfolio review by an industry professional. More information regarding the ADAA mentorship program can be found here.
