Ever wondered what it would be like to be fully funded and paid for your creative work? Adobe is giving talented artists that opportunity with Adobe Creative Residency. This program provides individuals the opportunity to work on their personal creative project for a year as well as offer guidance from advisers, compensation and resources. You’ll be able to share your progress and experience, attend events like Adobe MAX and 99U, collaborate with leaders in your field, and speak at conferences.
Creative individuals interested in taking part of the Adobe Creative Residency to help jump start their career in the chosen field need to apply by February 25th at 11:59pm PST to be considered for the 2018 year.
Applicants need to be residents in the United States, Canada, Germany or the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) and must be of legal age to work in your country.
While Adobe Creative Residency is looking to focus on photography, digital drawing and painting, graphic design, UI/UX design, and short form online video this year, they are looking for a wide range of projects and individuals and encourage anyone interested to apply.
The application is where you will share with your goals for the upcoming year, and how this program will help you reach them. Applicants will need to be prepared with a creative project they want to undertake during their year as part of the Adobe Creative Residency program. Show off your visually interesting and compelling project proposals that showcase past work, your influences and what you hope to accomplish in your new project. Highlight your strengths, what you hope to bring to the creative community and how this will challenge you as a creative individual. Know your passion and your project, and be able to share that. For the program, make sure to to know a general timeline for your project, which tools you’ll be using, and a budget for materials and supplies.
