Make Marshmellow's New Music Video and Win $10K from Adobe

The video editing contest gets you a free 30-day trial to Adobe's video apps, too. 

Want to create Marshmello's official "Be Kind" fan video? Here's your chance. Adobe has partnered with the DJ in a contest where the grand prize winner will receive $10,000 in cash and other cool prizes. 

To get started, head over to the contest page and familiarize yourself with the contest rules. The most important one to note is that it's only open to residents of the U.S., U.K, and Canada ages 14 and older.  

The idea is to create a kickass original video using the track "Be Kind." The video must be between 15 and 30 seconds long. Adobe has provided the artwork, graphics, and audio, which can be downloaded directly from the contest page. However, the video you do create doesn't have to be limited using those assets. The contest suggests that you can cut together original footage to make your story stand out. 

The video must be created using Adobe Premiere Pro, Premiere Rush, and/or After Effects. For those who don't have a version of the software, Adobe is offering a free 30-day trial. When signing up, be sure to note any cancellation date if Adobe plans to charge you after the free 30-day trial.

To enter the video, post it to Instagram or Twitter using a public account and tag @adobecreativecloud on Instagram or @creativecloud on Twitter. The hashtags #MarshmelloxAdobe and #Contest are also required. Entries must be submitted by June 3, 2020

In addition to the $10K grand prize, 9 2nd place winners will receive $400 and 3 months of free access to all the Adobe Creative Cloud apps. All the winning entries will be cut together to create the official fan video for the track and will be released on the Marshmello's YouTube channel.

Oh boo hoo. If you want to argue about the merit of these kinds of silly contests then sure, I'm on board. But the whole Adobe thing is just so boring. If you don't like it, don't use it. Some people have workflows that don't benefit from Adobe products. Some do. Calling Resolve way better though is just ignorant of the market and the needs of people all around.

They're all just different tools and you don't have to constantly scream that one is the best the down with the rest.
