Very nice gift from Adobe, although I don't meet criteria. Even if I meet them, I am wondering would I be able to get free 1-year subscription and is it worth to look foward to other promotions. I am from Croatia, in my country Adobe CC web subscription is not available, which is pretty big issue for photographers and designers here.

So my questions are:
Will Adobe make promotions available equally for all contributors, even us from countries without subscription?

If I decide to buy subscription some day, will I be able to do it if I get Adobe ID via syncing my Fotolia and Adobe Stock account? I guess not, but it's worth asking.

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!
I know what you mean, but these aren't done by "Illustrator artists". Those are rendered. I was talking about vector illustrations. But anyway: There are *some* 3D artists spamming as well as vector illustrators as well as photographers. Doesn't make a difference. They could have easily set different criteria (e.g. solely the annual earnings), if they're afraid of that.
Plus, if they accept such, this is ... I was just tempted to say "not our problem", but actually it *is*. One of the biggest issues I, personally, have with this industry. ;)

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

In that scenario you should be good to go!

Nice move from Adobe but no, thanks.
I am alergic to all subscription plans.
I bought 5 years ago a high end computer which is still working like a charm, fast like new one. My secret, no Internet connection, no stupid system and software updates which are made in "background". Don't like to rely on computer and marketing "wizards".
For Internet I use a laptop, reset and cleaned every 6 months.

This is the reason there is a 50% approval ratio requirement in place to qualify. In my opinion this is a reasonable ratio  that should be met by most contributors. The exception would be image spammers with the intent to game the system.

I found my answer in Official rules, looks like Croatia is eligible for this promotion. Sorry Mat, I haven't found that info before. Surprising but nice.

... and that's absolutely fine with me, Mat. (I'm at 90% or such, anyway.) But then I understand even less why Adobe doesn't "reward" us illustrators in an equal way. I actually *do* some image editing (both in PS and LR) as I'm a graphic designer, but I spend a lot more time working in Illustrator. So, there isn't too much of a benefit for me, although I easily qualify. :/

Since we're talking about acceptance ratio there is 1 thing I would like to mention. If you upload photos, and then for whatever reason delete them before they are reviewed, they're still calculated into acceptance ratio even they were never reviewed. And ofcourse ratio drops because photos don't end up in you portfolio.

My acceptance ratio is 94% so I really don't care about that, I'm just saying how things are.

One more thing I'll never understand, either.
