Apply for Your Passport to Creativity with Adobe Students

The ultimate creative experience. With no experience required.

Calling all students with a passion for travel and conservation – and an interest in photography or videography. This is your chance to expand your creative horizons, and turn a life-changing trip into a world-changing creative installation.


Adobe is working with Passion Passport to give six students from around the world the chance to travel to one of three of the world’s most protected natural environments.

On location, students will use Adobe Creative Cloud to capture and interpret the environment’s sights, sounds, and sensations.

Each student’s creative output will be showcased through an immersive, multimedia installation that recreates their expression of the protected landscape in an urban environment.


Simply tag the videos or photos in your Instagram feed that best showcase your creativity, and your perspective on the world, with #MadeThis and #PassportToCreativity to be considered.

Application deadlines depend on where in the world you’re located.

For the USA / North America:  February 23rd 2016

For Europe: February 29th

For Australia and New Zealand: March 4th



Chosen for their diverse ecosystem and conservation focus, these destinations will provide fertile ground for creative expression:

  • The Cleanest Place on Earth // Lord Howe Island, Australia
    Located in the world’s southernmost barrier reef, this island is free of litter, air and sea pollution, and home to large numbers of rare and endemic species
  • Africa’s Most Diverse Ecosystem // Greater Mara Ecosystem, Kenya
    Encompassing the grasslands and riverlets of southwest Kenya, this area is globally famous for its protected population of wildlife – including lions, leopards, African elephants, African buffalos, and black rhinos.
  • The World’s Next Protected Area // Patagonia, Chile
    Stretching from the fjords along the Pacific coast to the glacier-fed rivers of the Atlantic coast, this geographic wonderland is lobbying to be the region’s next national park. This status is vital as the native pumas, long-necked guanacos, Huemul deer, Andean condors and more, are threatened by various development projects.
