The Adobe Youth Voices Awards is a global challenge that invites youth to creatively express their vision for presenting potential solutions through visual storytelling. It recognizes media with original, high-quality youth-produced content that creatively express the vision for driving positive change in local communities.
Adobe Youth Voices Awards prizes will be presented in all seven categories:
- Music Video
- Photo Essay
- Poster Campaign
Adobe Youth Voices Awards will be awarded to the top three projects per category. Prizes will be awarded to youth artist(s), as well as the school/organization where the project was produced. Award winning media content will receive broad recognition and exposure through wide multi-platform distribution of their work, including online, print magazine, film festivals, and DVD.
The Adobe Youth Voices Awards judges are selected based on their expertise in media, technology, education, youth development, and social activism. Each judge is dedicated to supporting young media makers in the use of digital tools to create powerful messages for change.
Youth ages 13-19 are eligible to participate by teaming up with adult educators who are from any school or youth organization worldwide. In order to submit media, all educators are welcome to register with Adobe Youth Voices Community at no cost. If you are an educator affiliated to Adobe Youth Voices through one our partner organizations, please submit your media via the Adobe Youth Voices online community.
Eligible projects must be created by youth and demonstrate the power of media to give voice to youth issues and concerns. Media must have been created between 2010-2013 and submitted by an eligible adult educator.
U.S. export regulations prohibit the export of goods and services to Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria. Therefore residents of these countries/regions are not eligible to participate.
