[UPDATE – Also see our all-new Creative Cloud 2021 Giveaway!]
Last year was a good one for ProDesignTools and also for our readers. Over the course of the past twelve months, we’ve given away brand new copies of Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Acrobat X Pro, three copies each of Lightroom 3 and Photoshop Elements 9, and ten of the best CS5 books…
But now comes our biggest drawing yet: a shrinkwrapped new box of the CS5 Production Premium suite (the full commercial version), courtesy of Adobe – a new spring sweepstakes to thank our visitors.
CS5 Production Premium sells for $1,699 / €2,099 / £1,509 and includes Photoshop Extended, Illustrator, Flash Pro, After Effects, and Premiere Pro, among others… (see the complete list of applications it contains)
This giveaway is open to residents of North America, Europe, U.K., Australia and New Zealand – and all you need to do for a chance to win is the following three steps:
- Follow us on Twitter and/or Like our new Facebook page – this will allow us to contact you if you win…
- Retweet this post by clicking on the green “retweet” button just above, and/or Share this post on Facebook by clicking the blue “Share” button next to that.
There’s a third way to enter too – just leave your email for our free occasional Adobe Special Offers newsletter in the sidebar to the right… and you’ll add another chance, plus receive future notification of new Adobe deals and coupon codes (once in a while, never spam).
Each of these actions counts as a single entry into the sweepstakes – so if you do all three, you’ll receive a total of 3 chances to win the CS5 suite.
Submissions are open for four weeks until 11:59pm EDT on April 6th, 2011. The winner will be drawn at random from all Facebook fans and Twitter followers who have shared or retweeted this post, plus new newsletter subscribers – and we’ll announce this lucky recipient right here within one week from the closing date.
If you’re the one, we’ll ship you the shiny new shrinkwrapped CS5 Production Premium for free! We’ll contact you via Twitter or Facebook or email simply to get your address for shipping, and then announce here with just your first name and hometown. That’s all there is to it!
