Adobe D&AD New Blood 2018

Adobe D&AD New Blood Awards 2018

Adobe | D&AD

For this year’s D&AD New Blood Awards, Adobe is celebrating the spirit of the side hustle.

This isn’t the professional project you were sort-of proud of. It’s the one you really cared about. The one you carefully nurtured from mind to matter. The one that dominated your pyjama-clad Saturday nights because you just had to make it happen.

This is the perfect opportunity to make your mark in the creative industry – and bag yourself a generous payday while you’re at it. So come on, show us what your inspired passion and unstoppable attitude have created this year.

The brief

For the 2018 New Blood Awards, we want to see what your entrepreneurial spirit and commitment have created. We’re talking about something real, something tangible, and something you really care about.

And we want you to show it to us using imagery – be it with a short case study film or JPEG slides – so we can celebrate you as the entrepreneurial superstar you are.
