[UPDATE – Also see our new Spring Creative Cloud 2023 Giveaway!]
Welcome 2013! Last year we gave away a lot of software, so to kick off the new year right, we’re going to be giving away brand new boxed copies of Adobe Photoshop CS6, Illustrator CS6, and InDesign CS6 – with a collective value of US$2,000!
Creative Suite 6, Adobe’s flagship product line, has been doing very well in recent months… Available standalone for instant download or direct shipping, or as the core component of their new Creative Cloud offering, there are many important differences in this release compared to Creative Suite 5, including hundreds of new features added to the individual applications, major performance improvements, and much more.
And now we’re thrilled to give away brand new boxed copies of Adobe’s top-of-the-line CS6 products to our terrific readers who have helped build our site to what it is today… Just check out our most popular posts over the past four years to see what you’ve helped create!
For this new giveaway, we will be picking three winners. The first prizewinner drawn will receive their choice of Photoshop, Illustrator, or InDesign CS6. Then the second winner will get their choice of the two products remaining, and finally the third winner will receive the final package. Note these are not upgrade or education versions – these are the shrinkwrapped, full commercial English releases of CS6. Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign currently sell for $699, $599, and $699 respectively in the USA, though this contest is open internationally as well!
These products are getting rave reviews from customers but if you haven’t tried them out for yourself yet, then you can easily just download the free trials (for either Windows and Mac) to get started right away. All fourteen CS6 tools (and much more) are also available through a free tryout of the Creative Cloud.

I would be so happy to win Illustrator! I want to go back to school for graphic design and would love to get a head start!

Good luck to everyone!
I would love the chance to win InDesign because as a communications student I cannot afford it but love the software and need the practice for my résumé and hopefully eventually my career!
I would love to have a copy of photoshop — for taking photos of and editing the products I sell on etsy and eBay.
Wow, it is not easy to choose between these 3 great products!
My practical mind tells me InDesign, but my heart says Illustrator.
So it will have to be Illustrator… I can not wait to see what level Adobe has taken it to this launch.
I would prefer Photoshop, since I have developed an interest in photography recently. A copy of Photoshop would be great in compensating my lack of photography skill.
I would really like to have the Photoshop or Lightroom package cause I would really like to take my photography to the next level, but I am still a college student managing a budget.
Hi Andrea, thanks for your comment. If you want the latest versions of both PS + LR (Photoshop CC plus Lightroom 5), then some customers may now be able to get them both for $9.99 a month.
I will create premium designs and sell them online to support my income, as Photoshop, illustrator are so expensive to me because of the currency conversion rate!
i need adobe illustrator full
I would love to get the full version of Adobe Illustrator because I have used it in the past for logo design and it has been absolutely amazing. Unfortunately, it was much too expensive for my budget. Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity!
Many many thanks for this Great initiative and for conducting this Fabulous Giveaway. It is really appreciated.
I would like to get the full version License of Adobe Photoshop CC, the latest version because it has many cool features for designing any types of banners, logos, creative items, and many more which is absolutely marvelous.
I would like to create many website logos, creative designs for Genuine websites, creative banners for my projects, and likely use it as a first preference for designing and editing if I win. It would be a Great Help for me for my projects. I wish to be a Lucky winner of this Giveaway this year!
I am from a rural area of North Carolina and am trying to work up the money to attend a university to learn animation. I have used Gimp (an open source alternative to Photoshop) for years now and still have trouble with the often counter-intuitive design GUI. I am hoping to win a copy of at least Photoshop because of its user friendly interface and the plethora of training videos on the internet to help me lean how to bring the images in my mind to fruition.
can explain how i can photo edit, pls everyday … this is my humble request
