Today, at the Digital Publishing Suite Summit, Adobe and Adweek launched the Digital Publishing Awards. The partnership between Adobe and Adweek reflects shared values in creativity, innovation, and technology. Since 2010, Adweek has honored winners of the Talent 100 in its Adweek Talent Gallery, and this year has expanded its site to showcase creative work built with Adobe Digital Publishing Suite. The Digital Publishing Awards will recognize and honor original mobile apps and ads that harness the power of Digital Publishing Suite to create compelling experiences for consumers.
From now until July 22, 2013, submissions will be accepted through the Adweek Talent Gallery, powered by Behance. Any mobile app or ad built with Adobe Digital Publishing Suite (or built with Creative Cloud, Creative Suite and/or HTML and published via an app built with Adobe DPS) can be uploaded as a Behance project into the Adweek Talent Gallery. Any project tagged with “Adobe DPS” will appear in the “Adobe Digital Publishing” section of the Adweek Talent Gallery. See the DPSAwards.com landing page for instructions on uploading and tagging submissions.
Submissions to the Adweek Talent Gallery will be judged by creativity experts in advertising and publishing. Semifinalists will be determined based on the number of “appreciations” on Adweek’s Talent Gallery. Two winners will be chosen – one for the Mobile Ad category, and one from the Mobile App category. Each winner will receive a trip to New York City, hotel accommodations in New York for three nights, a delegate pass to Advertising Week, passes to Adweek’s Clio Awards, and a 12-month Adobe Creative Cloud subscription.
Post your creative and innovative work on the Adweek Talent Gallery to enter. Send your friends and supporters to the site to “appreciate” your project. May the best creative win!

The Cultivation of Creativity
Tuesday, January 15, 2013
EXPO Stage, Expo Hall, Level 1
Description: Recent studies show that 75 percent of us think we are not living up to our creative potential. So what would happen in retail if we were encouraged to be more creative, cultivated creativity and actually made more time for it? Products we sell might look different, production costs might be lower, and companies could be more forward-thinking and resilient as a result. Join us as our experts lead us to what our collective creativity might realize and achieve if nurtured and encouraged, fed and watered.

With the 59th annual Cannes Lions Advertising festival just concluded last week, advertising agencies used Digital Publishing Suite at the event to help showcase creativity and client portfolios on tablet devices. One of these agencies – J. Walter Thompson, used Digital Publishing Suite to create a portable showcase app that its executives used during one-to-one meetings at the festival.
Rich with interactivity and including over 23 videos, the app showcases the agency’s work for powerhouse brands like Heineken, Johnson & Johnson and Kellogg’s. Built by RMG Miami (a division of JWT), in conjunction with the firm’s New York office, the app enables JWT executives to pitch new business at the festival, while showcasing the app production capabilities of the company. One of the most compelling features of the app is how JWT used the flexibility of Digital Publishing Suite to create a drag-and-drop interface for videos. Users can select the videos they wish to see and then drag them into the queue to view them at once.
The JWT Cannes app allows agency executives to showcase the firm’s marquee brands when pitching new business.
“Overall, our Cannes app was very successful. All of our executives were happy with how quickly we could produce the app using Digital Publishing Suite, as well as the end result,” said Douglas Fajardo, CEO and Creative Director of RMG Miami. Fajardo worked with a small team in Miami and New York to concept and produce the app, and sees a bright future for Digital Publishing Suite within JWT to deliver compelling creative for the firm’s marquee list of clients.
JWT used the flexibility of Digital Publishing Suite to include a video player that allows users to select the videos they wish to see and then drag them into the queue to view them at once.
