I'm a semifinalist in the 2013 Adobe Design Achievement Awards in Editing/Post-Production!
I suddenly decided out to start organizing my email accounts tonight, and found this congratulatory email tucked away in some random folder, (because sometimes Gmail makes no sense) -
"Thank you for participating in the 2013 Adobe Design Achievement Awards and congratulations on the selection of your entry (Entry #2947) (Ice Cream For Breakfast) for the Semifinal round in the Editing and Post Production category." And now, you can find me in the 'semi-finalist' section of the site, and on the ADAA facebook!
I initially decided to enter because I saw posters all over my school promoting the contest, but I don't know anyone else from the school (or at the least, my major) who also submitted. On the site, there's a graph showing how many submissions per art school were made - and MassArt isn't even on the graph. I also noticed a girl with whom I attended high school is a semi-finalist for something-or-other, and I wanted to beat her, haha...competition.
Now I've gotta get all the required materials together and ship them off to Adobe - wish me luck! Just being nominated as a semi-finalist is an achievement in itself, but it would be great to move on to the next level!
