ACA Championship 20 Days To Go

ACA Championship 20 Days To Go
20 days to go ... Prodigy Learning is delighted to announce the UK Final of the ACA UK & Ireland Championship will take place at Adobe's EMEA HQ in Maidenhead, UK on June 16, 2016.

In February the first 10 UK & Ireland Finalists were announced (chosen from thousands of eligible ACA exams taken during the First Qualifying Round between October 1, 2015 and December 31, 2015). 

Now only 20 days remain to be in with a chance to join them at the UK & Ireland Final in June.  Students must sit a qualifying ACA exam by May 15, 2016 to enter.

Andrew Flood (CEO, Prodigy Learning) said: "With only 20 days to go, excitement is building for the ACA UK & Ireland Championship Final.  The next few weeks are a great opportunity for students to take an ACA exam and hopefully join us as UK & Ireland Finalists in June."

Last Chance to Take Part - Closing Date May 15, 2016

A further 10 students from around the UK & Ireland will be chosen using the "top-score method" (highest exam score and lowest exam-taking time) from eligible ACA exams to qualify for the Regional Final in June 2016.  This round has now started and customers are encouraged to sit ACA Photoshop, InDesign or Illustrator exams without delay to be in with a chance of joining the list of National Finalists and winning fantastic prizes.

UK & Ireland Final

The Regional Final will bring together the 20 finalists (selected in the two Qualifying Rounds) at an event hosted by Adobe UK on June 16, 2016 to determine the UK & Ireland Champion. 

The event will see finalists compete in a design challenge where they will be given instructions, project requirements, and assets to complete a real–world design challenge using Adobe Creative Cloud software.  The UK & Ireland Champion will be determined based on an evaluation of the finalists work.
