Adobe, the worldwide leader in creative tools, is harmonizing with Oscar-winning Pixar Animation Studios to present a new artists’ challenge tied to the eagerly awaited animated feature Soul (available on Disney+ on December 25). For the Art and Soul contest, fans around the world are invited to share their creative spark by designing an album cover celebrating their true selves — inspired by the awakening journey of music teacher Joe in the movie.
An album cover is an outward artistic expression of what’s inside, both literally and figuratively, making it a perfect format to play with themes from the film: Soul is all finding out what makes you, YOU – whether that’s a feeling, a passion, a calling or a place.
“We’re excited to collaborate with Adobe around the release of Soul to inspire and engage their broad creative community around this milestone release,” said Jonathan Garson, SVP Marketing, Pixar. “Our work together is the manifestation of our shared goal to inspire creativity and champion artists all over the world, and we look forward to creating greater opportunities together so that everyone can tell their amazing stories.”
One Grand Prize winner will receive an exclusive mentorship session with Soul director Kemp Powers, $10,000 USD cash prize, a signed Soul poster, special vinyl release of the film soundtrack, one-year Creative Cloud membership.
To enter, fans can take advantage of a 30-day free trial of Creative Cloud and artwork from the new Disney-Pixar flick to create an album cover design that shines a spotlight on who they are, using CC apps like Illustrator and Photoshop. Entries can be shared via public accounts on Instagram (with @adobecreativecloud, #AdobeArtandSoul and #Contest) or Twitter (with @creativecloud, $AdobeArtandSoul and #Contest).
The contest is now live and will close January 10, 2021. Find the complete rules, runner-up prize info, resources and inspiration at adobeartandsoul.com.
