FREE Pass to Adobe MAX 2016! Win a Full Ticket Worth US$1,595

MAX 2016 – the big annual conference intersecting creativity and Adobe technology – is coming up this fall in San Diego, California… And continuing our long tradition of free Adobe giveaways, we’ve got one free regular full conference pass (worth US$1,595) to give away, plus one US$400-off ticket savings, both courtesy of our friends at Adobe Systems!

Adobe MAX 2016—The Creativity Conference: Learn More!

Adobe MAX 2016, The Creativity Conference – running from November 2-4 – will be chock full of expert keynotes and presentations, technical and how-to ses­sions, product announce­ments and sneak peeks, evening events and parties, networking and meeting the teams, and possibly some surprises… The show is an amazing experi­ence where they really take care of you from start to finish while you soak up all the growth and learning you can.

In fact, many of the best courses and tutorial sessions from the last MAX were recorded and are still available on-demand for free viewing, covering all Adobe applications.

As their website puts it, “MAX is a gathering of 9,000 like-minded creatives who are as passionate about their work as you are. MAX is inspirational and iconic speakers; hands-on labs; time-saving tips and techniques; sneak peeks at new technologies; and strategies for delivering your best creative work. MAX is not to be missed.”

And right now there’s Early Bird Pricing available for MAX with tickets offered at US$300 off until August 19th, or US$500 off for new Creative Cloud customers.

However, if you’d like to travel to California for free this year (or anywhere actually), then we’ve got another great deal for you: sign up for a new credit card like this one and you can now receive 50,000 bonus frequent flyer miles – which is more than enough for a free roundtrip flight ticket anywhere within North America (using a Saver Award on United Airlines)… And the annual fee is $0 for the first year.

    I’ve never been to the Adobe Max conference. I would love to go!

  2. From attending the Art Institute of Houston back in the day of galleys and past-up boards, hand cutting amberlith and rubylith, dodging and burning by hand while developing negatives in the darkroom, creating storyboards using markers, watercolor and colored pencils to transitioning over to this new concept of doing all of this digitally was a GREAT thing. I have worked with Photoshop and Illustrator since it’s inception, and it was very easy to me because the menu items had the same names as the photography and design lingo that I already knew.

    However, just like anything else that constantly progresses, you have to try to keep up with the latest versions and all of the tips and tricks that third parties come up with. I know that attending the Adobe Max Conference will open so many new paths for me, not only in the programs that already use, but it will intrigue me to explore other programs in the Adobe family to further enhance not only the work I do, but most definitely spark new ideas to enhance my company and the people I work with.

  3. Sherry

    I’ve been to MAX twice and it’s by far the best conference I’ve ever attended. Thousands of people who understand what I’m really saying when I talk about what I do and sessions, labs and workshops led by prominent experts…what’s not to love? I enjoy having the opportunity to speak to the experts one-on-one, as well! MAX has allowed me to explore other creative areas, in addition to building skills in the ones I already work in. I use what I learn at MAX all the time and I look forward to having a week to just recharge creatively!

  4. Karin

    Creative Cloud is enhancing our online training development like I’ve never seen before. By attending Adobe Max, I think the world would be opened up even more for me.

  5. I would LOVE to get the Adobe Max so I can start my own T-shirt making business!

  6. Dajuan H.

    Hey, my name is Dajuan, I am 23yrs old and this would be such an amazing experience to attend a event as such, I just graduated in May with my Web Design & Support Degree (which I recently lost all access to my adobe products, I simply could not afford it). To add, if everything goes as planned, I will embark on another journey which includes me getting my second degree (graphic design, visual arts, and more)… still trying to figure out which path I want to take. Overall, this would be the best gift that I have received this year besides me receiving my degree in May, being a creative soul it’s who I am, it’s in my spirit. God Bless and Best Wishes to everyone else who entered.

  8. I have been to MAX2013 and I loved it. This edition would be a perfect ‘upgrade’ for me.

  9. Adam

    Went to 2010…time to shake the dust off and go again!

  10. Sarah K. Smith

    Would love to go so I could meet the industry’s best people and enjoy the workshops.

  11. Neil

    Adobe Max, is by far my favorite conference to attend. The wealth of knowledge available to attendees is invaluable. I love the idea of picking up new skill sets and tips and tricks in programs I have been using for years. I also love learning about programs in which my knowledge is limited to their two-letter icon only seen at a passing glance. I absolutely love Adobe Max.

  12. Jessie

    To recharge my creative juices like never before and meet some really cool people! It will be my 1st foray into Adobe Max.

  13. I want to see how adobe Max is for The First Time in my life … if i had the chance, i will be so grateful. Also i love the Adobe Company and all Products That They Make … if i didn’t have the chance, it’s Ok as i believe in adobe EveryWhere … Thanks Adobe For Everything …

  14. I would like to network and to learn more about how Adobe technology can move me forward

  15. Philemon Ejimuogu

    Thanks, Hope i get a freebie.

  16. I would like to win because I’ve been using Adobe products since Photoshop 2, was awarded your STUDIO PACKAGE in 1998 for my KidCast for Peace Solutions For A Better World project (Adobe one of many sponsors) but more importantly….

    I am steward of the domain Creativity.com. I am wanting to find creative collaborators to make this web domain a Creativity PORTAL; to influence people the world over in ways that will benefit them and nurture Creativity and everyone. Your tools and conference excit me. I would love the opportunity to be able to tap in to the inspired mindshare of those at your conference, hoping to enroll creatice collaborators and those who would like to support the idea, AND SHARE IN THE Global PROCEEDS, from a portal and open door to creativity enhancement and nurturing of the creative spirit in us all…to uplift, inspire and benefit the world. Please select me. It would go a long way also to help manifest a specialty venue called Creativity Cafe ; a “new school” (http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Sandbox/CreativityCafe) dedicated to creativity, creative people and those who think they’re not (nothing could be further from the truth).

  17. Travis Brainerd

    Want to get a glimpse behind the scenes and hope to have some great conversations with others in the animation/illustration field, or the teams who work on the apps I use.

  18. Rebecca Alley

    Are there any more Adobe Max giveaways?

    • Hi Rebecca – believe it or not, we are still trying to find a winner for this one… We have now drawn and contacted 4 different winners over the past two weeks, but nobody has confirmed via email yet!

      Our efforts continue, so please keep an eye on your Inboxes – and stay tuned!

    Adobe MAX is a great conference. I went to one in the past and felt so inspired after attending. I am the solo designer at a nonprofit. I don’t have the opportunity to work among other designers. This conference is a great way for me to be among my peers. Thanks for your consideration.

  21. Our Winner of the Free Adobe MAX Conference Pass

    We’re happy to announce the winner of our Adobe MAX 2016 Free Ticket Giveaway…

    Our grand prize winner is Michael McMahon from Aurora, Colorado! Mike has just been awarded a compli­mentary full pass (value US$1,595) to the Adobe MAX conference this fall in San Diego.

    Mike says, “I had seen the email stating that I had won the contest and was filled with immense Joy. I could not believe this company was willing to invest in our success. ProDesignTools has helped me out with many Photoshop issues, and now, they are sending me to Max!? Words cannot express my gratitude. Thank you!”

    Our runner-up is Don from Detroit, Michigan. Don received a voucher for a US$400 discount to MAX.

    Congratulations to Mike and Don, and thanks to every­one for being part of our latest giveaway… A special thank you also goes out to Adobe for generously sponsoring this promotion. If you didn’t win this time don’t worry – stay tuned for our next contest coming soon!

    @ProDesignTools
    Looks like you found an awesome winner!!

  23. Look, I’m one of those artist sorts. I do all right for myself, and I do much of what I do utilizing adobe programming… While I’m respected with my work, I’d like to take it to the level of mastery. Having access to the classes and learning at Adobe MAX would be a dream; a level up situation.

    I don’t have the funds to attend otherwise this year. But, if I could go, I’d take these new skills and use them to harness the powers of Adobe and finish my art book. It’s West Coast Samurai themed. I’m about halfway done, and the imagery is killer… I set a large goal of having 99 images finished, and at times it’s daunting. With your help I’d be slaying and knocking down some cool art. I linked to my instagram so you can see what I have flowing…

    Thank you for your time in reading this. I toss my coin into the well.
