When a graphic design company has a positive impact on the industry, it may be recognized for its efforts. Recently, Adobe announced that it will begin accepting entries for the 11th annual Adobe Design Achievement Awards (ADAA). New categories have been added for both faculty and students this year.

"For over a decade, the ADAA has acknowledged student excellence from the world's accredited higher education institutions," said Ann Lewnes, Adobe senior vice president of global marketing. "We are proud to extend our global reach and expand the program to honor the faculty and academic staff who nurture this student talent."

The International Council of Graphic Design Associations will be supporting the award ceremony for the third year in a row. Students, administrators and staff members from higher educational institutions will be eligible to participate for free.

The ceremony will be held in Taipei, Taiwan, in October 2011. Individuals in the graphic design industry will have until January 28 to enter the competition.

Employment in graphic design is predicted to increase by 13 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
