2015 Adobe Youth Voices Awards

The Adobe Youth Voices Awards program honors youth who make original, outstanding digital media to creatively express their vision for positive change. We invite you to submit media that inspires, informs, and generates solutions. Early submission deadline for content produced from 2012 through 2014 is March 9, 2015. Final deadline is: April 20, 2015.

Eligible projects must be created by youth between the ages of 13-19 and demonstrate the power of media to give voice to youth issues and concerns. Media must have been created between 2012-2015 and submitted by an adult educator. Participation is completely free and does not require the use or purchase of Adobe products.

The Adobe Youth Voices Awards accepts media in five categories: Documentary, Narrative, Animation, Visual, and Venture*.

* The new Venture category, launched in partnership with Ashoka's Youth Venture, focuses on youth-led social ventures.  A youth-led social venture is a project or organization run by youth to create positive impact in the community. Whether you are starting up or fully established, produce a video that shows the problem you’re addressing, how your solution works, and who it benefits.
