Adobe Systems Inc.
put out its call on Tuesday for the
2004 Adobe Design Achievement Awards
(ADAA). The fourth annual awards program honors student designers, illustrators, digital filmmakers and artists from leading U.S., Canadian and British design schools.
Students submit projects created using software and design tools developed by Adobe. The awards are broken into seven different categories, judged by design professionals from various disciplines who will select winners based on criteria like overall impact, design execution and technical capabilities.
Winners receive a trip to San Francisco to attend the awards ceremony, where their work will be showcased and they’ll meet design industry professionals who attend the event. What’s more, first place entries get a US$5,000 prize and their choice of 10 Adobe products.
Last year nearly a thousand college students submitted ADAA entries. The entry period for this year’s awards runs from April 1, 2004 to May 17, 2004. Entries will be judged in early June and the awards ceremony happens on July 29, 2004.
