Adobe is partnering with actor-director Zach Braff to create a fun little contest where you create a movie poster using Creative Cloud apps, about anything you want, and if Braff likes it, it will become a short film. But it’s not for anybody.
The basic rules are, you use any Adobe Creative Cloud app, including Photoshop or Spark Post, to create your movie poster. Then you post it to Instagram or Twitter by November 30th, with the “hashtag” #MoviePosterMovie #Contest. Then you follow @AdobeStudents on Twitter.
The winning poster will be selected by Zach Braff, who will then write and direct a short film based on your poster idea. Winners will be flown out to the set to watch the magic happen. The grand prize winner will also receive a MacBook Pro and one year of Adobe Creative Cloud. There will also be runner up winners for categories including Best Illustration, Best Design, Best use of Template, and Best Photography. All runner up winners will also receive a MacBook Pro and one year membership in Creative Cloud.
But there is one catch … the contest is only open to college students who are at least 18 years of age or older and enrolled in at least 12 credits. See Official Rules here.
Adobe is also offering a free trial download of Creative Cloud, plus a 60% discount if you subscribe. There is also Adobe Spark Post, which you can launch online to create, and Adobe is even offering templates to get your started. Adobe Spark Post looks really easy to use, with templates that include access to Adobe Stock Images, or the ability to upload your own. So if you can’t afford to use Creative Cloud, Spark Post is very doable.
Deadline for the Adobe Movie Poster Movie Contest November 30, 2018 at 11:59:59 PM PT. Visit moviepostermovie.prizelogic.com for Official Rules and complete details.
