Projects that are funded or sponsored by Adobe or designed specifically for Adobe are not eligible to participate in the Contest. All federal, state, provincial, autonomous, and local laws and regulations apply. Void where prohibited.

3. Categories & Judging

Each entry must meet the requirements, as specified below in Section 4. Any non-conforming entries will be disqualified. Altered, defaced, mutilated, illegible, or incomplete entries are not eligible and will result in disqualification of entry. Entries that contain any content that is pornographic in nature, lewd, or sexually explicit, in Sponsor's sole discretion, will be disqualified. After each entry is screened for compliance with the entry requirements, it will be judged by a panel of judges selected by the Sponsor. The judges' decisions are final and binding. Judges retain the right to reclassify entries from one category to another or to select only components of the submission for honors. Each of the six (6) categories will have three finalists selected and three honorable mentions awarded, unless the judges determine that the entry quality does not warrant the award of all prizes. Category winners will be selected from the category finalists through online public voting. Adobe reserves the right to not award any Honorable Mentions. The entries, whether submitted by an individual or a group, shall be judged together in each category on a points system based on five criteria applicable to all categories (Quality of end-user experience, Monetization of application/success at increasing revenue and profitability, Breadth of Adobe solutions used to develop the application, Reach of application, in terms of audience and availability across devices and Demonstration of real-world, live implementation, and quality of project data submitted) All point calculations will be kept confidential.

Explore ways to create and deliver interactive, engaging reading experiences that balance the beauty of style, the richness of imagery, the visual impact of typography and the engagement of interactivity, animation, sound and video without losing the convention of effective storytelling. This category will showcase the best of book and magazine design for non paper media. Magazine layouts must be built with Creative Suite 4 or Creative Suite 5 and delivered in the SWF file format.
