Creative software giant Adobe has kicked off its annual hunt for the world's most promising student talents, launching the 2010 Adobe Design Achievement Awards (ADAA).

The awards are open to students and cover a range of digital creative disciplines, including illustration, animation, motion graphics, print communications, browser-based design, app design and more. Click here for the full list of categories.

ADAA Awards are open to both groups and individuals; all entrants must be students. For the full list of eligibility requirements click here.

The awards -- which run annually -- are hugely prestigious and offer prizes including trips to Los Angeles and the Adobe Max conference, $3,000 cash prizes (about £1,850), and Adobe Creative Suite 4, as well as mentorships, portfolio reviews and other career-boosting goodies.

To enter, students must submit a work that has been created since May 1, 2009. The piece must have been created using predominantly Adobe software. Works can be submitted through the ADAA website, here.
