Adobe Creative Cloud

Online Creative Jam: Winners & Featured Work

We hosted our first online Creative Jam on Dec 1, the day we shipped all the latest Creative Cloud apps. Creators from around the world had just 24 hours to submit an original project inspired by the theme: “You need the dark in order to show the light.” (If you’re wondering, yes, that is a happy little Bob Ross quote.)

A panel of judges made up of Adobe employees and creative streamers reviewed more than 350 submissions, which ranged from images to illustrations to animations. They selected 10 semi-finalists, four finalists, and one grand prize winner.

Check out the winning artists and projects below! Then head over to the Creative Jams Behance Page to explore submissions from past battles, including our London, Los Angeles and New York City events. And stay tuned… we’ll be doing more online Creative Jams in 2016.
