The Adobe Digital Edge Awards celebrate game-changing student projects that use Creative Cloud apps, like Photoshop, Illustrator or Premiere Pro, to take uni work to the next level. Whatever you’re studying, digital skills can make you and your coursework stand out.
Digital literacy is the ability to use digital tools to solve problems, create innovative projects, and enhance communications to prepare for the evolving workplace. These are skills every new graduate needs to demonstrate to employers.
Set yourself apart.
Showing how you can communicate complex ideas in a simple, creative and impactful way will give you an edge over your peers.
Fill the skills gap.
Creative problem-solving and the ability to collaborate effectively with others are soft skills many current graduates are lacking. They’re missing out because of it - so make sure you don’t!
With AI and automation predicted to replace around 80% of today’s jobs by 2037, you need to make sure you can do the things computers can’t – articulate ideas and be creative.
With over 600 student entries from 83% of UK universities, the judges saw best-in-class examples of digital literacy from all over the country. Find out who had the digital edge.
