Prodigy Learning today are delighted to announce Barnardos as the charity partner for the 2022 Adobe ACP UK & Ireland Championship. Barnardos is the leading children’s charity, working across Ireland to give vulnerable children a better chance and improve their outcomes.
The Adobe Certified Professional (ACP) World Championship is a global competition that identifies and honours the next generation of design professionals using Adobe software. The ACP UK & Ireland Final will bring together the top 20 finalists in June 2022 to determine the ACP UK & Ireland Champion.
The final will see students compete in a design challenge where they will be given instructions, project requirements, and assets to complete a real–world design challenge for Barnardos Ireland using Adobe Creative Cloud software. The UK & Ireland Champion will be determined based on an evaluation of the finalists’ work.
The 2022 UK & Ireland ACP Champion will win the trip of a lifetime to represent their country and compete at the Adobe ACP World Championship Final in the USA*.
Kate Conroy (Head of Corporate Partnerships, Barnardos) commenting on the announcement said: “We are thrilled to be chosen again as the charity partner for the Adobe ACP UK & Ireland Championship. We were blown away by the level of talent on display during the 2021 final. It was a privilege to crown and to actually use the winning design in our ‘Jump the Generator’ challenge.”
“This initiative is a very special one for us as we love to see the real-life impact these creative and powerful designs can have in a marketing campaign. We cannot wait to see the submissions created by the top talented creative students across the UK & Ireland. Thank you for supporting Barnardos.”
Andrew Flood (CEO, Prodigy Learning) added: “Each year the ACP Championship presents a fantastic opportunity for us to host the top creative design students getting real-world design experience while also giving tangible benefit to a very deserving charity. Getting to see the projects these ambitious, talented students produce using Adobe Creative Cloud is a highlight of our year. We cannot wait to see these students kick-start their design career with Adobe ACP Certification and the overall champion’s artwork be used for such a good cause as Barnardos.”
Barnardos’ mission is to deliver services and work with families, communities, and partners to transform the lives of vulnerable children who are affected by adverse childhood experiences such as abuse, parental mental health, neglect, separation, bereavement & addiction.
