Certiport, a Pearson VUE business, is now taking submissions for the 2018 Adobe Certified Associate U.S. National Championship. The competition is designed to promote certification and showcase creative students with expert digital design skills using Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator.
U.S. students ages 13 to 22 who have earned Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) certification in Photoshop, Illustrator, or InDesign between the dates of June 16, 2017 and June 15, 2018 are eligible to submit a project. Projects should demonstrate design ability and can be created in any school program or specifically for the competition. The projects will be judged by a team of creative experts and the top three U.S. winners will win an all-expenses-paid trip to represent the U.S. and compete in the 2018 ACA World Championship in Orlando, Florida, July 29 – Aug. 1, 2018.
