The Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) World Championship presented by Certiport, Inc. is a global competition that tests students’ design skills using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. Top students are invited to represent their respective countries at the World Championship where they will create a designated design project for Certiport’s chosen nonprofit client. In some countries or regions, students are required to participate in a National Championship, and the winners of that event continue on to the World Championship.
In its fifth year, the 2017 Adobe Certified Associate World Championship attracted more than 110,000 unique candidates from 67 countries who competed to demonstrate their mastery of Adobe products. Forty-seven student finalists participated in the final round of competition. Student competitors designed a printable poster and digital poster for Iridescent, a science, engineering and technology education nonprofit organization that empowers underrepresented youth to become self-motivated learners, inventors and leaders.
You’d never believe these designers are students.
