20,000 Adobe Stock Contributors To Get CC Photography Plan Free In 2019

Posted on 10/9/2018 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (1)

To incentivize Adobe Stock image and video contributors Adobe intends to provide the Creative Cloud Photography Plan (worth $120/£120), to 20,000 to them for free in 2019. You must already be an Adobe Stock contributor and either have had 300 or more photographs accepted, or made $500/£375 or more from sales.

If you contribute 300+ videos, the prize is even greater, as the first 2,000 qualifying contributors get a free one year All Apps Creative Cloud redemption code worth £600/$600.

The Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan includes the all-new Lightroom CC photo service so you can easily edit, organize, store, and share your photos from anywhere, and Photoshop CC so you can transform your images into anything you can imagine.

To Qualify

There are a few terms and conditions. Only the first 20,000 Adobe Stock Contributors to meet these targets will qualify, and the qualifying period is January 1 to December 31 2018. There are two different software plans you can be awarded:
    1.    To receive a 1- year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan, be among the first 20,000 Adobe Stock Contributors to upload at least 300 accepted assets or earn $500 (USD) in royalties for the period Jan 1-Dec 31, 2018. To qualify, you must maintain at least a 50% acceptance rate of your submitted content.

    2.    To receive a 1- year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud All Apps plan, be among the first 2,000 Adobe Stock Contributors to upload at least 300 accepted video assets or earn $500 (USD) in royalties from videos for the period Jan 1- Dec 31, 2018.  To qualify, you must maintain at least a 50% acceptance rate of your submitted content.
Terms and conditions apply. Valid until December 31, 2018, or while supplies last. For complete details, eligible countries, and promotional item descriptions see Official Rules.

Don’t bother spamming Adobe with content between now and December 31st because contributors must hit at least a 50% acceptance rate to qualify. Contributors must be at least 18 years old and Premium, 3D, and template assets are excluded.

Adobe has published a Creative Cloud Giveaway FAQ for those who would like more information.

The good news is that if you’ve already achieved these numbers during the qualifying period you don’t have to do a thing, because you’ll get your complimentary 1 year redemption code automatically.

    Corrections on the Creative Cloud Giveaway Plan

    - It’s been running since last Spring.

    - On top of the Photography plan they are also giving away full Creative Cloud plans for the videographers or the contributors that generated more than $500 in revenue.

    - They already distributed +15.000 along the summer to our most successful contributors, it’s been an exciting giveaway worth fighting for!

    - They should have enough plans left to run until end of year. Whomever applies to the conditions receives the e-mail.

    - Fotolia contributors with the correct amount of uploads or sales are eligible too, they just have to sync their Fotolia accounts to Adobe Stock Contributor (contributor.stock.adobe.com) for the giveway to get triggered.
