Adobe Wants You: Adobe launches 2004 student awards 

Attention all students: Adobe wants you. The San Jose-based company has just launched its annual Adobe Design Achievement Awards. The idea here is to nurture promising design talent in currently enrolled in post-secondary education courses in North America and the UK. Do note, however that residents of the Province of Quebec are excluded. Of course, submissions are expected be produced primarily using Adobe products.

Between 1 April and 17 May 2004, students can submit work in the categories Time-based Media, Print, Illustration, Photography, and Multiple Media. If you work as part of a group, you can also enter the Print Collaboration and Digital Collaboration categories. Category first prize includes a cool bit of wedge: $5000 worth to be exact, plus a trip to San Francisco for the awards event, including airfare and hotel. Of course you also get to pick one of ten Adobe products.

Judges include Andrew Blauvelt Design Director of Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Carol Bokuniewicz, Founding Partner at M&Co in New York, Karin Fong, Director and designer at Imaginary Forces in Los Angeles and Lucille Tenazas, Principal at Tenazas Design in San Francisco. The panel’s chair is Alexander Gelman, Founding Partner and President of Design Machine in New York.

Judging takes place in early June, and the awards ceremony will be held 29 June at the Yerba Buena Center for Arts in California.
