Adobe CoCreate: MAX kicked off this week, a program that hires creators of all disciplines from around the world to help build, promote, and make MAX 2021 the best it can be. Originally introduced last year, the program aims to empower and amplify diverse and emerging creative talent by commissioning them to create art to help bring the Adobe MAX creativity conference (happening again virtually this year), to life – all while getting paid to do it.
Last year’s CoCreate: MAX received over 1,900 applicants from 90 countries. Applications for 2021 are open now, and creatives of all skillsets are encouraged to submit art via Behance within the following categories:
- Motion/Animation – Create interstitials, GIPHY sticker packs, visualizers, and more
- Graphic Design – Create downloadable art to promotional posters, preset packs, and more
- 3D/AR – Create MAX-themed Instagram Story filters, and more
- Illustration – Create photo booth stickers, video call backgrounds, illustrated notes, and more
Creatives can sign up to participate in this year’s CoCreate: MAX here.
Adobe MAX, taking place virtually October 26–28, will feature hundreds of live and on-demand learning sessions for all skill levels, as well as notable creative luminaries and celebrity speakers such Chloe Zhao, Tilda Swinton, Kenan Thompson, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and Casey Neistat.
