The Finalists Are In! Audience Voting is Now Open for Adobe Youth Voices Awards

At Adobe, we believe in the power of creativity and want to give our youth more opportunities to express themselves. Today, we celebrate the creativity of students around the world via the Adobe Youth Voices Awards, an annual competition that invites students to express their vision for driving positive change via digital media. In its third year, 2,402 students from 51 countries around the world submitted 1,315 projects this year – the largest batch of submissions we’ve ever received.

We’ve narrowed it down approximately 20 projects in each of our seven categories. From today until May 30, you’re invited to vote for the Audience Award winners. They’ve shared their voice with the world – now it’s your turn. Audience Award winners will each receive a $500 donation to the charity of their choice and a one year membership to Adobe Creative Cloud.

Our esteemed panel of judges will also be hard at work over the next month to determine first and second prize winners in each category, who will receive everything from a charity donation, to a Creative Cloud membership, to Samsung Galaxy Tabs for their school.  Of course, all award-winning media will also be featured prominently on our Adobe site and distributed in a number of print and digital platforms.
