The Promoter’s Photo Contest Winner

Spitting Images awards Canvas Print Prize

We recently worked with The Promoter to host a photo contest for their Explore Bobcaygeon and Explore Fenelon Falls publications. Photography from the entrants were included in the pages of the books and some graced the covers. Along with The Promoter’s Art Director James Goodliff and Fred Thornhill, we judged the photos and came up with a winner. We chose Brian Wunderlich’s photo of Burnt River as the overall winner. Brian was awarded a 24″ x 16″ canvas print of his photo as his prize.

Students and teachers can get Creative Cloud for a discounted price for their first year

Adobe Creative Cloud Special Offer for Students and Teachers

For a limited time, students can get Adobe Creative Cloud for only $19.99/month

Once in a while we come across promotions from companies we like. Spitting Images uses Adobe Creative Cloud to run our business – we use Photoshop and Lightroom to create artwork and send Canvas Prints to our printer. We use Illustrator and InDesign for our graphic design projects. We’re also using Dreamweaver, Flash and Muse to create websites and web content for our clients.

We know first hand that being a student can be a real financial strain. So when we came across this offer from Adobe for a discounted membership to the Creative Cloud, we wanted to share it with you.

If you don’t already know all the benefits you get from subscribing to Adobe Creative Cloud, we recommend that you take a look at their website. Click the link or on the banner below to get all the information you need and to sign up for this limited time discount offer.

For a limited time, students can get Adobe Creative Cloud for only $19.99/month.

Another option for some creatives who don’t necessarily require the most up-to-date version of Adobe Software. It’s pretty easy to find old copies of outdated and unsupported versions of Adobe Creative Suite. It might not be totally compatible with the newest computers and operating systems, but it might be worth a try. Spitting Images got along just fine with this particular software suite for a few years before upgrading to CS4, then more recently to CS6 Creative Cloud. However, please note Adobe’s warning on the site and use the software at your own risk.
