Here’s how you could WIN £9,250 in cash for a piece of uni work
That’s a whole year’s tuition fees paid for
The first term of uni is in full swing and so are the assignments and exams. Are you tired yet? Stressed? In need of a well-deserved reward? Of course you are! Adobe appreciates this, so they’re offering students a chance to win £9,250, i.e. a YEAR’S tuition fees. But wait – it doesn’t stop at £9k, they have a total of £24,500 in cash prizes on offer.
Adobe is back with the Adobe Digital Edge Awards for a second year, and this time it’s bigger and better with double the number of prizes. Not only will two winners receive £9,250 cash, there will also be six runner ups who will win £1000 EACH.
If you’re thinking to yourself: “This sounds great but I don’t have time to create a whole new piece of work”, don’t panic because you have the choice to enter a piece of coursework you’ve ALREADY done.
YouTuber Max Fosh sums it up perfectly in this clip:
To keep things fair, Adobe wants to ensure students with all levels of skill have a chance at winning some cash, so the brief you’re given depends on what you study. Those studying art, design and other creative courses – where you’re likely to be more familiar with Creative Cloud tools – will work to a different brief. This way, you’ll only be judged against those with a similar skillset.
• Brief for students who are not studying to be a creative pro (that’s subjects like history, business and education) = show us how you have brought digital literacy (that’s using digital tools to solve problems and communicate effectively) to your university coursework.
• Brief for students who are studying to be a creative pro = reimagine a written essay into a digital piece of work
The work you submit can be in the form of a video essay, infographic, documentary, news report, magazine, podcast or loads more. The Creative Cloud apps include Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Premiere Pro. If you don’t think you have access to these, check your uni website as many unis offer the Creative Cloud apps to their students.
