Design Challenge 13 winners and Finalists announced I’ve been busy this morning (and this weekend), going through all the great entries we just received for our contest. There were so many good ones, it was hard to choose only 30 finalists. Every year we have our big design challenge and the entries are always great. This year was no different. People from all over the world submit their designs in the hope to win Adobe Creative Suite, Wacom Tablets and training from PhotoshopCAFE. I want to express a big thanks to our sponsors. It wouldn’t be possible without you, and it keeps the
contest free to enter. Not just the prizes, but it has become somewhat of a “feather in the cap” to win the PSC Design Challenge. This is our 13th year and the challenges attract the best designers from around the world because the bar is high and it’s a tough challenge. We don’t just allow anything that people have created throughout the year, they have to specifically design a new piece for the contest and it’s always a real-world challenge. This year it was mobile phone cases, and the creative juices were running! The hard part is ahead as we will be announcing the winners soon. It’s hard to judge! I love some of the clever ideas and excellent Photoshop skills demonstrated in these Photoshop Smartphone case designs. It’s worth looking at the finalists work.
As always, it was free to enter and 3 lucky winners will nab some awesome prizes from Adobe, Wacom PhotoshopCAFE and more.
UPDATE, we had Bert Monroy as this years special guest judge.

What can be more exciting than the smell of burning rubber and the ground shaking, body moving sound of highly tuned dragsters tearing up the tarmac? How about shooting them with a drone?
