Student designers were in the spotlight at the 2009 Adobe Design Achievement Awards which promised entrants the chance to win a trip to Beijing and cash in exchange for groundbreaking designs across 12 categories from three forms of media.
The program received more than 3,300 submissions from students representing 37 countries, who were then judged by an international group of judges comprised of professional animators, illustrators, motion graphics and multimedia.
"This competition places your foot securely in the door of almost any company in the creative industry," says 2006 ADAA interactive Design Finalist Sam Smelter on Adobe''s homepage. "There is no price you can place on the amount of exposure this competition offers."
In addition to roundtrip airfare and accommodations for the Icograda World Design Congress in Beijing and a $3,000 prize, winners also receive a one-year mentorship with leading professionals in their area of entrance.
Categories in the competition included Browser and non-browser based design, animation, photography and installation.
In all 19 American entrants were honored by the competition, the most of any one country involved with the program.
