Adobe Looking for the Next Photoshop Evangelist

Adobe is running a unique contest right now in search of the “next Photoshop evangelist”. Sadly, the winner isn’t given a special “evangelist” position in Adobe’s marketing department, but rather the prize package is pretty typical: a copy of CS5 Design Standard and a trip to Photoshop World in 2011 (which includes airfare, lodging, meals, and a chance to demo the winning tutorial).

Here’s a lighthearted video they made announcing and promoting the contest:

To enter, they’re asking that you upload a short two-minute video tutorial teaching some new CS5 feature, and incorporating the number 20 somewhere in the video (celebrating the 20th anniversary of Photoshop).

At the time of this post, only 4 videos have been submitted to the contest so far. The submission deadline is 8/24, so if you’ve got any skillz at creating Photoshop tutorials at all, your odds for winning the grand prize might be quite high. Good luck!

    So you have to promote Photoshop CS5 and then you can win CS5 Design Standard, which contains Photoshop? Nice! ;)

    There are 4 videos there, but only three are real submissions (the fourth being the announcement). Of the three only 1 is two minutes long (2:02 actually). And this video does not use the number 20 in it! So uptill now none of the videos conforms to the contest rules!

    Too bad I can't compete, since I live in the Netherlands (why did they restrict the number of countries that can enter?).

    Kind of strange indeed, winning some software you are actually promoting AND using while promoting it. I can only think of trial users then who actually find it worthwhile. Actually the trip would be worthwhile so forget I said anything :)

    By the way- glad you said the number of countries is restricted. I had the tendency to make a video but since I'm Dutch as well I can't. Shucks.

    Dear Adobe…you re going OUT OF BUSINESS. You are a hostile Indian Company that doesn’t understand Westerners or Americans in particular. You are like Microsoft…you exist in-spite of yourself. You are not needed. Please go away….thank you
