To qualify for the U.S. National Championship. First, a student must pass one of the following exams by the end of the qualification period:

After the student passes an exam, they must submit an original design project with accompanying source files (Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and/or InDesign).

Designers who are typically chosen to compete at Certiport’s Adobe Certified Professional Championship submit projects that could be used for a business setting. When submitting a project, students should consider including:

  • Both text and graphical design
  • A call-to-action (where applicable)
  • Preparing the file for digital OR print distribution (where applicable)
  • Original artwork
  • A variety of design elements (such as shape, color, space, form, line, value, and texture)

Students can submit an original design project even if it does not include all the items listed.
