Prototype your Creative City App using Adobe XD and your favourite icon kit. You will have the opportunity to win a one-year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud, 100 Adobe Stock images, and a paid trip for 2 people to attend Adobe MAX 2018 in Los Angeles later this year.

How it works

1 - You´ll need to download Adobe XD.

If you already have a Creative Cloud subscription, Adobe XD is included in all-apps plan and you can download it from you CC app or here. If you don´t have a plan you can use the free trial available here.

2 - Download the exclusive icon kits and select your favourite one to use in your app prototype.

You have to use at least 5 icons from the selected kit in your prototype.

3 - Design your own mobile or web app prototype on the theme "creative curated city recommendations".

  1. For your app prototype you can show how proud you are of your city by creating a curated list of your favorite 10 creative spots, the kind of inspiring places you think that creatives visiting your city would enjoy.
  2. Or you can prototype an app considering one of the curated selections made by the 3 icon kits' designers.

You are welcome to design the app prototype however you want, as long as your proposal features an app for sharing curated creative city recommendations. If you use photographs or illustrations in your app, please use only those that you have the right to use or you can even use up to 10 Adobe Stock images included in the free 30 day-trial option. Do not use photographs of people unless you have their permission. Entries containing recognizable photographs of famous people or public figures will not be eligible. See more details in the official rules.

4 - Publish your project on Behance and promote your work on Twitter using the tag #IconContestXD

Publish your project on Behance with the tag #IconContestXD including a description, some visuals to show your prototype and creative process and select the Adobe tools you used (eg. Adobe XD). If you have a paid subscription you can share the web link of your prototype. See how to publish it here.

Share your work on Twitter with the hashtag #IconContestXD. You can share from your Behance project, export your design as a PNG image file (or take a screenshot) and simply share that, or you can share your design by using the Share Online feature in XD to create a shareable link that you can tweet.

The deadline for submissions is March 15th, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. CET. A winner will be chosen and announced by March 27th, 2018 on our official social channels.

An expert judging panel – including the designers Anton and Irene, Lance Wyman, Büro Destruct, and Michael Chaize from Adobe – will choose the grand winner. We will also recognise 10 finalists who will each receive a one-year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud.
