[UPDATE – Also see our new Spring Creative Cloud 2022 Giveaway!]
There’s no doubt that Creative Suite 6 will be out sometime later this year… We have a pretty good sense of when, but we’d like to get a leg up on the release and give out a brand new boxed copy of Adobe’s forthcoming top-of-the-line CS6 suite to our amazing readers who have helped build our site to what it is today…
Yes, that’s right, this is it: the big enchilada, the numero uno, the biggest of the best Adobe premium suites – it’s CS6 Master Collection, containing nearly every great application that Adobe makes! It includes Photoshop Extended, Dreamweaver, Acrobat Pro, InDesign, Illustrator, After Effects, Premiere Pro, and many more – see all the applications it will likely contain when released.
We’ve given away a lot of software over the years, but this prize is our largest ever… And it’s not an upgrade or an education version – this is the shrinkwrapped, full commercial English release of CS6, which has been generously furnished by Adobe. Master Collection currently sells for $2,599 / €2,899 / £2,303 – and collectively the 15+ major programs within are worth $7,587 if purchased separately.
So what new features will be in CS6, compared to CS5.5? Well, we have a good sense of Photoshop CS6 already through the free beta release download… For the other products, Adobe’s CEO dropped some hints recently, in addition to nearly a dozen sneak peek videos, plus the inside scoop on the CS6 video products.
How to get it? Well, it’s easy to enter. The contest is open to residents of North America, U.K., Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa – and all you need to do for a chance to win is one (or more) of the following:

That’s it! Each of these actions counts as a single entry into the drawing – so if you do all four, you would receive 4 different chances to win the CS6 Master Suite. Be sure your email is correct and current so that we can contact you. One entry per reader for each method, but please do share and tell your friends and colleagues who would like the software as well.
Submissions are open until 11:59pm EDT on Wednesday, April 18th, 2012. The winner will be drawn at random from all valid entries, and contacted via email – and we’ll announce the lucky recipient (first name only) right here the following week. If you’re the one, we’ll ship you a shiny new box of Adobe CS6 Master Collection the moment it’s available, for free!

Master collection is the best of the best choice to have all products from Adobe.
learning and design and working on it
With the cs6 creative suite, I will make a choochoo train.
If i win the master collection i will finish my course in graphic design whilst trying to develop my surf company and get it known.
I would use the software to design our Chamber newspaper. In our small town the Chamber is a community organization with as many individual memberships as businesses.
I agree! Master collection is the best choice to own!
Welcome Sean and Kim, it’s actually pretty easy to try out if you want to – as Adobe offers free 30-days trials of Creative Cloud for download and install… After the month is up, you can purchase either the Cloud or the CS6 apps normally, or win here!
Either way you can keep a free level of Cloud membership indefinitely, with 2GB of storage space to sync, share, and browse your files online. Good luck!
I would create better youtube videos …
I would be able to edit many of my graphic designs for my school newspaper!
CS6 is amazing! i love it. can’t wait to win it
With CS6 I can do a million and one things. Gonna work some animation for sure
“What do you plan to do with Adobe Creative Suite 6?”
With my Adobe Creative Suite 6 Master Collection I plan on showing the world how creative I can get! With everything in the box I will show how much I think “out of the box”! I love creating things! At the current moment I am building a production company. I really enjoy directing, filming, editing, and producing videos and everything that goes with it especially music animation and pictures. Adobe Premiere 3 is the only program I am able to use to assist with my videography at the moment and I know with a more updated version of it as well as After Effects I can really make some magic happen! I am currently working and attending school as a 23 year old full-time wife and mother to help myself get closer to my dreams and if I am able to receive a free Master Collection suite to cut down costs on my behalf I will be extremely appreciative and blessed! Thank you for your time and consideration! GOD bless!
I would give it to my wife so she has all the Adobe products she would need for her new Photography Business!
I like this present .
I will make future best tech games with adobe flash cs6…..
I would probably die of heart attack and be buried with it if i won.
What would I do with Adobe CS6? Well I would use it in conjunction with the other software that I utilize in my education. I am in school for my Bachelor’s Degree and this software is very important for me to successfully complete and submit my assignments. I had CS5 on my old computer that has become an oversized paper weight. Now I need a new version on my new computer so I can continue my scholastic pursuit.
As an photo restorer I would use Adobe Creative Suite 6 Master Collection for repair work, and all things artistic, which I work on. I would also use it for teaching purposes as a volunteer within a support group for a local community interaction project which helps depressed and vulnerable people overcome their problems. This would be the best birthday present if ever I won.
I am learning animation on a free cs6 trial and enjoying it!
well i guess i plan to smile like a fool for a month or two!
If I win, I will continue making films!
