Thanks everyone. I hope you are enjoying your software and look forward to seeing what you create with it!

Mat Hayward

Thanks Mat, all precious infos!  :)

I want to let you know a side "problem", I post it here as this could be useful for someone else

I'm Adobe customer (photographer plan) before this free offer.
BUT instead of standard plan I had a plus, taken from a special offer months ago: 1Tb of cloud space instead of standard 20Gb

After having received my code I contacted via chat the Adobe customer care to understand how to use the code AND at the same time save the same cloud space. The answer was to activate the code immediately and the cloud space would be remain the same. I was doubtful about this and, in fact, instead of free year photographer plan subscription I gained two subscription plans... one is one year free for contributors with 20 Gb cloud space, other is the payed plan with 1Tb cloud space.

As I can understood, there was no way to exchange plans, and also no way to pay only the addition for the 1Tb cloud space (well, really there could a way to do that, but it would more expensive than the simple plan I had before! So it's the same to say "no way")

Finally: now I've activated my free yearly plan but I necessarily had to close the 1TB cloud space; this involved a lot of work for to empty cloud, and move files to other places, and, bad for Adobe, I'll be no more 1Tb cloud space subscriber... not for my choice, but for strange cross of different offers.

I know it's difficult for big company to trace every single situation ;-) but just to let you know, Adobe gave me a great gift (thanks!) and at the same time had forced me to close the extra payed plan. Also the kind guy at the chat told me "I'm sorry I can't do more than this for you, I can only close the payed plan without penalty"

So for all of you that don't have a standard plan on Adobe take carefully when activate your free plan.
I know, as I read on FAQ, that any subscription planes different than standard ones should be taken at the end before activating the free one, but maybe this is not really clear, also on Adobe customer care side!

And, for Mat, please suggest to your colleague to send more infos to other countries customer care (I'm from Italy, and the people at the customer care seems to be not really informed about situations like these). And suggest to your marketing dept to find a good way to solve situations like mine, so you will not loose 1Tb cloud subscriber (paying customer!) giving at the same time app subscription for free :)

Last: sorry for my poor english :-D I Hope you understand everything :)

I was wondering why I haven't received my code in spite of meeting all the conditions.

After reading the official rules I figured out I come from a wrong country.  :'(  :'(  :'( For what ever reason, my country Slovakia is not included on the long list of eligible countries. Any idea why a European Union country is excluded from the giveaway?

And why is Adobe sending the offer to countries that are not eligible to take the offer anyway?  :o

Hmm.  Im sure i had over 300 approved this year before Aug 3rd (definitely do now) and acceptance rate is 95%+ or more.

Is then any easy way to count number of accepted videos this year other than going through the "date uploaded" manually and counting up to that point?

I got the LR/PS code email but i havent had another one so i doubt its in spam.

Mat figured out the problem with my account - it may not apply to other people though.

My problem was that I haven't uploaded in 2018. I've been busy elsewhere and didn't realize that in addition to the sales minimum, I needed at least one upload approved in 2018. I've uploaded a small batch and should see my code shortly.

Thanks again Mat for your assistance

Jo Ann, Could I ask you if you've now received your code?  I am in the same position - have now had uploads approved but so far no code has been sent.

Thanks,
Pablito

Not yet, but Mat had said that he wasn't sure when the next batch of codes would go out - I'll post here when I receive mine

Sep 19 - just to note that I haven't forgotten to post, but I haven't yet received a code. I'm hoping the next batch, whenever it goes out.

I was also wondering why I didn't get my code a few weeks back, so I emailed Adobe on their support page about the question.

Someone got back to me a few days later.  They said that I had passed the 300 accepted level, but that my acceptance rate at the start of the year was under 50%.  I had never read about 50% acceptance rate being part of the criteria??

At any rate, she said that my submissions this year have brought my rate above 50% (I had uploaded a ton of editorial images early on, before I realized they did not accept them, which brought my early rate way down).  I should expect my coupon soon.

Sure enough, it came in the mail a week later.  As luck would have it, the coupon came just a few days before my annual renewal of the CC Photo Bundle was due.  Effectively, Adobe just paid me an extra $120, which is a nice bonus...  :)

Hi Mat,
I live in Poland and my earnings on Fotolia site are shown only in Credits, and my earnings on Adobe site are shown only in Polish PLN. I couldnt find a way to view from Poland my earnings in US dollars. So my question is: How many Fotolia credits equals $500?. I have earned 470 credits this year so far, so if 1 Fotolia credit = 1 USD, I hope to qualify soon. But please confirm.

Regards
Chris

1 Fotolia credit = $1 for the promotion. You are almost there.

To qualify you need to one of the first 20,000 contributors to have 300 files approved or have $500 in earnings since January 1, 2018 with a 50% or higher approval ratio to receive a CCP member.

The first 2,000 video contributors to have 300 videos approved or with $500 in earnings on video sales with a 50% or higher approval ratio will receive a one year full Creative Cloud membership.

If you have already qualified then no action is needed on your part. In the next 6-8 weeks you will receive a code via email. If you haven't met the criteria yet...get out and start shooting and submitting!

An faq has been created to answer most questions. If you have any other questions please let me know.

While grateful for this offer. Some of us are still nervous who qualified on the day of the announcement but haven't received our codes yet.

The most recent set of codes were sent out this past Saturday by CompEXT. I don't have the list of qualified contributors in my possession at this time for confirmations but I should soon.

Thank you,

Mat

I'm at 494 as of august 24th. Surely that's more than $500?

At first Adobe Stock support told me I didn't meet the criteria, that I was at $494. I replied that it was 494. Then they told me to wait for the next batch of codes.

Now I'm not convinced that the automated system takes into account the difference between and $.

If you don't have 300 files approved this year then you will need to earn 500 before you qualify. Sorry for any confusion.

Hi Mat, everywhere I look it says $500 not 500. Ill probably get to 500 eventually but Im worried that the codes run out before that.

In an earlier post you wrote that 1 Fotolia credit = $1 for the promotion. So it is 500 credits, and not 500?

BTW, I just passed the 300 approved files mark today.

Yes, my mistake. I apologize for the confusion on currency and earnings requirements. Congrats on the 300 approved file milestone.

Fairly sure the answer is "no" but....

I activated my LR/PS free code about 3 weeks ago before realising i'd also qualified for the full CC package.

Is there any way to transfer this 3 week old code to another adobe CC account (a relatives)?

Hi Matt,

Just out of curiosity, are there any free codes left? I just passed the 300 video uploads mark, but also passed the $500,- mark three weeks ago.

I'm pretty sure that once redeemed, you cannot transfer a CC code. Contact customer service through Adobe.com however as they will have a more definitive answer for you.

Yes, there are still codes available.

Just found my code I received in mid-August in my emails and registered the code on Adobe CC site.  Thanks Adobe.  This is a good move by them.

Wondering the same thing! We earned the photo code back in the first round but just qualified for the whole package and are hoping we did so in time as it's such a nice bonus.
