WHAT IS THE ACA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP?

The Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) World Championship presented by Certiport, Inc. is a global competition that tests students’ design skills using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.

Top students are invited to represent their respective countries at the World Championship where they will create a designated design project for Certiport’s chosen nonprofit client.

In some countries or regions, students are required to participate in a National Championship, and the winners of that event continue on to the World Championship.

Individual partners/countries may have additional published rules.

HOW DO I COMPETE?

Get certified to compete! By taking an Adobe Certified Associate exam in either Photoshop, Illustrator, or InDesign, you’ll be automatically entered into the ACA World Championship and could be chosen to represent your country!

The Certiadria team is proud to partner with our Solution Providers around the Adriatic region.
