[UPDATE – Also see our all-new Creative Cloud 2021 Giveaway!]
If you like Photoshop and want a free paid trip to Photoshop World plus a CS5.5 suite, check out Adobe’s Next Photoshop Evangelist contest… All you have to do is create and upload a 1-2 minute video demonstrating your favorite “Hidden Gem” in Photoshop CS5.
What’s a hidden gem? Essentially, it’s just a lesser-known feature or workflow of the product that you find valuable – perhaps using a function or tool in a way that Adobe didn’t imagine… For some great examples, check out this helpful series of Photoshop Hidden Gems that Adobe produced.
The top 5 videos will be selected and voted on, with the winner receiving a $4,000-$6,000 prize package including a trip to the PSW Conference either in Washington, D.C. this spring, or in Las Vegas this fall – plus a full copy of CS5.5 Design Standard. The trip includes roundtrip airfare, lodging, event admission, and spending money – plus meeting Adobe’s Photoshop Product Team personally and the opportunity to demonstrate your hidden gem live at the show. Four runners-up will get a free $1,000 copy of Photoshop CS5 Extended.
It’s open to users 18 years or older in the USA, Canada, U.K, and Germany. No purchase is necessary to win – because if you need Photoshop CS5 to use for your entry, you can easily download the fully-working free trial for 30 days. You can submit as many original videos as you like, just be sure to mention the phrase “hidden gem” in each… For some ideas of what to talk about, see the list of new CS5 features for Photoshop (and all other products). Complete contest rules here.
The submission deadline is March 5th after which five finalists will be chosen by Adobe, and the grand prize winner will be selected by the Photoshop community on Facebook. All five finalists will be showcased by Adobe on several venues. So show off your Photoshop skills and sharing abilities and you could be on your way to Photoshop World this year with a new CS5 suite on your laptop and some fame to your name.
