About Adobe Design Achievement Awards

Since 2009, ico-D has proudly partnered with Adobe in a shared goal to empower young designers through creative engagement.

The Adobe Design Achievement Awards celebrate student achievement reflecting the powerful convergence of technology and the creative arts. Since 2016 the competition has aimed to be a spearhead for the launching of student careers. The competition—which showcases individual and group projects created with industry-leading Adobe creative software—honours the most talented and promising student graphic designers, photographers, illustrators, animators, digital filmmakers, game developers and computer artists from the world's top institutions of higher education.
