This year marks the first time that the Adobe Design Achievement Awards (ADAAs) are offering higher education students around the world the opportunity to submit early and be recognized – with three semifinalist judging sessions for entries submitted by Jan. 28, April 29 and June 24. Students can submit twice within a category, and for the first time, can participate in as many categories as they would like. The 2011 awards also introduce three new categories for faculty: Innovation of Interactive Media in Education, Innovation in Video and Motion in Education, and Innovation in Traditional Media in Education.

Today Adobe announced the call for entries for the eleventh annual Adobe Design Achievement Awards (ADAA) and introduced new categories — to include faculty and staff. For over a decade the ADAAs have celebrated higher education’s best student graphic designers, photographers, illustrators, animators, digital filmmakers, developers and computer artists. This year marks the first time that Adobe and the creative industry will recognize teaching excellence as well as student accomplishment.
Adobe will host the awards ceremony during the International Design Alliance (IDA) Congress in Taipei, Taiwan in October 2011. For the third year in a row Icograda is endorsing and supporting Adobe’s flagship creative competition.
