If you have professional experience and training in any creative field that puts you at a distinct advantage over students and emerging creators, your entry will be disqualified.
There will be just one cut in the 2019 competition, down to the top 5-10% of all entrants. These emerging creators will be the members of Adobe's "Top Talent" of 2019. They will all receive a free year-long Creative Cloud subscription, and they will all form an exclusive community, with special access to Adobe, eligible for additional opportunities on a regular basis, for a term of 12 months – all designed to launch their creative careers. Moreover, this year Adobe is giving a special cross-category prize this year. Use Adobe XD in your entry (in any category) and you'll be in the running for extra recognition.
