Is this for Fotolia contributors also?

Yes, as long as you have synced your account with Adobe Stock. If you haven't done so yet, please visit contributor.stock.adobe.com to sync up and qualify for the giveaway.

-Mat

If I sync now I doubt I'll be in the first 2,000 chosen.
Are there any other benefits to syncing accounts?

Sure, there are plenty of benefits to submitting through Adobe Stock. Top features include the ability to edit keywords on approved content, an unlimited number of assets allowed in drag and drop upload feature, the ability to upload directly through Adobe Bridge and/or Lightroom, auto-keywords and custom portfolios.

Hi Mat.
I got the email, I know I qualify, but I cant see how to redeem this wonderful gift.

Also, I have a subscription that ends at December. Will I be able to redeem it then?

Thanks.

LOL. No love for the Illustrators.

Not true! We definitely love illustrators! I understand you are referring to Adobe Illustrator specifically but it's important to note your vector uploads and earnings from vectors do count towards the CCP giveaway. 

-Mat
He wanted to say that as a (vector) illustrators, we don't need Ps+Lr subscription and can't get full CC, because it requires 300 video uploads.

Cool bonus from Adobe.

What happens if my Adobe Stock and Creative Cloud accounts are based on different emails and not connected?

Nice to have some good news for a change. I qualify already for the photoshop offer, so I will be watching for the email to head my way.

Thanks very much Adobe.

The language says "or": "...be among the first 20,000 Adobe Stock Contributors to upload at least 300 accepted assets or earn $500 (USD) in royalties for the period Jan 1-Dec 31, 2018...."

So if we have not uploaded >=300 assets but meet the $500 sales criterion we still qualify?

@Liorpt "I got the email, I know I qualify, but I cant see how to redeem this wonderful gift.

Qualified contributors will receive a redemption code in the next 6-8 weeks.
Per the FAQ regarding your second question "If you have the exact same plan as the one you are awarded (CC Photography plan with 20GB of storage, or CC All Apps plan) and you redeem the code using the same Adobe ID: At the time of redemption, with the same Adobe ID, billing is suspended for 12 months if you have a monthly plan that is billed annually. If you paid for the full year in advance, the year of your CC giveaway plan will start once your prepaid year is over." 

@Pokemonmaster "He wanted to say that as a (vector) illustrators, we don't need Ps+Lr subscription and can't get full CC, because it requires 300 video uploads."

-Duly noted

@ForrestBrown "What happens if my Adobe Stock and Creative Cloud accounts are based on different emails and not connected?"

That shouldn't matter. You can redeem the code you receive with any Adobe ID.

@wds: "So if we have not uploaded >=300 assets but meet the $500 sales criterion we still qualify?"

Yes, that's correct. Though you should still have uploaded at least 300 assets. If not...get shooting right away! :)

@Brightontl: "Great stuff Mat!
Keep on rocking!"

Thanks much for that though I can't take the credit. Adobe Stock has a very strong team and ensuring contributors are taken care of is a top priority. It makes me very happy to be able to communicate with you about this promotion for sure!


Thanks everyone for  and questions. Keep them coming, I'll be checking in all day.

I'm with the vector illustrators and would be very glad to have my giveaway (I qualify for it, yay!) for Adobe Illustrator - sadly Photoshop it's not really useful for me in itself. It's nice news nonetheless, but would be truly great news for us to be able to use it for what we need and work with. Is there any chance to have this changed in the future? :)

Thanks Mat!

It would be good if there was the option 1) Photoshop & Light Room or 2) Illustrator on it's own. That way it would allow vector artists / illustrators benefit from the give away as well!

I don't think that is in the plans right now but anything is possible with future promotions.  has been noted for sure.

Thanks again!

I guess you can get a single app subscription for $20.99. That mixed with Photoshop and Lightroom would cover most of my needs and save about $32 a month. I guess if you are doing a lot of side work in InDesign or other programs then maybe not. I'll have to weigh it all out.

Well, that's all assuming that you can run 2 plans at once Photo Plan and Single App plan. If not, then back to square one.

I have confirmed that yes, you can have both a CCP subscription and a single app Illustrator subscription running at the same time with the same Adobe ID.

Sounds promising Mat.... it really does make a change that an agency gives a little back to it's contributors! Much appreciated!!

Will the credits for the photography plan go towards a full CC version that I'm already paying for? Like others have said the photo version isn't a ton of use by itself to me, but a little off my bill is always good.

The full cc comes with illustrator
Edit: I see, it's the PS, LR combo that's given away. not the $50 plan. Meh

lol. Maybe they can devise a strategy to just slice our bill in half ... for all of us with the full CC and no video. lol

Definitely what I think, too. Even though this is a "gift", I won't go through any hassle (e.g. waiting several weeks, making sure that my older versions of PS and LR will still keep working - and the whole "never change a running system" thing) as long as Illustrator isn't included. I do get along with my older versions of PS and LR. So, ... sorry Mat, IMHO Adobe should either do this right (and equally for everyone) or not at all. Thanks, anyways.

what if we already met both criteria in March this year through Fotolia and synced accounts today?

I totally agree, not to mention the automatic renewal of the giveaway plan.

In fairness, in the FAQ's it does explain that you don't have to add credit card details and therefore avoid the automatic renewal scenario. It would just run out.

I don't want to tar all illustrator artists with the same brush, so sorry for including the 'good guys' in this generalisation, but from a lot of the illustrations I see... you'll probably get a bunch of contributors make some white, tubby, featureless character holding a sign, and then they'll just render out a version face on, and then one rotated 1 degree to the left, 2 degrees to the left... and before you know it, they've uploaded 360 illustrations from a mornings work. Criteria met!

As a photographer, I now meet both criteria and I have already received a message about it. I am very happy to receive real appreciation from a stock photography agency. That feels very good! Thank you Adobe and Mat!

In all fairness, there is only one way I understand this:
Quote
You will not be charged anything right now and you can skip this step by selecting Remind me later. If you select Accept terms and conditions and enter a credit card, you will receive notification at the end of the CC giveaway subscription term that your membership will automatically renew and you will be charged the regular monthly rate. Terms and pricing will be presented at the time of renewal.

Still it is a nice gift for many contributors.
