[UPDATE – Also see our all-new Creative Cloud 2021 Giveaway!]
Over the past year we’ve given away a lot of software… Last month we held our biggest giveaway yet – a copy of CS5 Production Premium (see our lucky winner). This month things get even bigger and better – in partnership with Adobe, we’re offering a free boxed copy of the brand new CS5.5 Design Premium – the #1-selling Creative Suite edition…
Creative Suite 5.5 was officially released just two weeks ago, and contains a large number of new product features and improvements over CS5. But this prize is not an upgrade or education version – it is the shrinkwrapped, full commercial English version of CS 5.5.
CS5.5 Design Premium sells for $1,899 / €1,899 / £1,509 and includes Photoshop Extended, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Flash Pro, Illustrator, Acrobat X Pro, among others… (see the complete list of applications it contains) If you want to try it out first, the free trials also are now available.
This giveaway is open to residents of North America, Europe, U.K., Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa – 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… (move to the next step if you already do)
- 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 CS5.5 premium suite.
Submissions are open until 11:59pm EDT on June 30th, 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 CS5.5 Design 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!
