Post by: MatHayward on August 08, 2019, 09:57
I've got good news to share with you. The Adobe Creative Cloud subscription bonus program is back!

You can read all the details here: https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/creative-cloud-bonus-FAQ.html

If you have 300 or more files approved that have been submitted in 2019 with at least a 50% approval ratio you will receive via email in the next 6 weeks a code for a complimentary year of Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan (20GB).

If you have 300 or more video files approved in 2019 with at least a 50% approval ratio you will receive a code for a complimentary year of the Adobe Creative Cloud All Apps plan.

This is great news, Mat. I've enjoyed my complimentary subscription this year and believe I will qualify again.

Great news, (for once!), and I should qualify for the Photography plan again.

However, I recently upgraded to the full CC package, so will I be offered a discount to the value of the photo plan?

Thank you!

Hi Kat,

No, there isn't a discount option based on the CCP bonus. You could gift it to a friend or family member. If you did, I'm sure you would be regarded as a personal hero to whomever you gifted it which is a priceless opportunity right? :)

This is covered in the FAQ I linked in my original post. Here is a hypothetical scenario to answer your question. Let's say you have 300 approved 2019 images right now. You qualify for CCP bonus and will receive the code in the first wave of code emails. Then in 2 months you have your 300th video approved, you would receive a code for the full CC after.

If right now you have 300 videos from 2019 and 300 images you would only receive the CC code since it has all the programs offered in CCP already included. Does that make sense?

Very nice. I was hoping this would come back.

I got the free Photo plan last year. Just checked, and I am well past the 300 photos this year, but do not know how to determine my acceptance rate (which must also be over 50%)??

I have 214 videos so far.  I might be able to push that to 300 too. :)

Perfectly. I'd meet criteria for both so in that case would get the CC (full package). I see you have 12 months to use the code so when my existing ones run out Oct/Nov I can just redeem it then... if I've understood the terms correctly.

I still don't understand why are vector artists always left behind?
With 300 vector uploads one should receive an Illustrator CC license code.
A photography plan is pretty useless for vector creators, even though we qualify...

Sorry Shelma, I'm not ignoring you. We don't have a standalone version of Illustrator available as a bonus at this time. You would need to submit 300 videos in addition to your vectors to receive a complimentary code for the full Creative Cloud which does have Illustrator in it. Your feedback has been noted. I'm sorry you are disappointed.

Best regards,

Ridiculous. Adobe now expects illustrators to become videographers or animators as well. Imagine walking into a roomful of people and offering everyone a gift except, for no particular reason, one person. And then telling them they need to become a different person if they want a gift. I see that vectors are top sellers across all stock sites, but whatever. Between Shutterstock's ridiculous new submission requirements for illustrators and Adobe's refusal to acknowledge us, I'm really not into contributing anything any more. No biggie....I've only been using your products since their inception.

Thanks Mat, it's great to hear the bonus program has returned. I see they've upped the ante. The "$500 in sales" requirement is gone, but now we need 300 freshly uploaded videos. I better get to work then... ;)

@Shelma:
I agree it's not fair to leave illustrators hanging like that. I have the luxury of being a vector AND video contributor, but hopefully next year they'll include ALL contributors.

But why are you excluding illustrators, aren't vector sales a large percentage of the total.
Giving a bonus to photographers and video contributors and nothing to illustrators both this and last year makes me feel offended.
If you wanted to include us you could have given a discounted price of whatever plan we are using or something similar.
My guess is the bonus is a marketing tool because lots of people are switching to affinity as they don't like the subscription only option but I still don't understand why not give something to illustrators too.

Post by: Clair Voyant on August 10, 2019, 14:33
Mat: Why not just offer Creative Cloud to content providers of 300 ++ submissions a year? As you can see from the posts above illustrators get the short end of the stick. As it stands for me, I get the free Photoshop but use an alternate to Premiere, simply because of cost. I'd glady use Pemiere if it was offered. I am not a marketing guru, but it makes total sense to me to pull in the creative community for all aspects of what Adobe has on offer. If you think about it some people won't even use what is on offer, and others will take full advantage. To exclude content providers because there is no stand alone product makes no sense at all. There are other video editing programs and other illustration programs and Adobe is more or less saying we don't matter, and truth be told I think offering the full meal deal would go a long way within the creative community regardless of medium in which we choose to express. It would be a real morale booster. Food for thought.

I thought last years codes had no expiry?  You could use one after the other if you had both?

Glad i saw that, im using the LR one and the all apps expires Sept1 so i need to use it before then.

There seem to be 2 FAQs with different dates:-

https://helpx.adobe.com/lt/stock/contributor/help/creative-cloud-giveaway-FAQ.html
Says "You have until July 31, 2021 to redeem the code."

Whereas this:-  https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/creative-cloud-bonus-FAQ.html
says "The code will remain valid 12 months from the date it is issued to you. "

The latter is the one linked in the email that sent the code.

Okay, now I am confused. The FAQ for the first program ($500 in sales...) says expiration date: 7/31/2021.
The FAQ for the latest program says expiration date is one year from issuance of code. So for the first (>$500 sales) program, it would seem that 7/31/2021
is the expiration date.

Mat, can we get a clarification on this? Specfically, what is the expiration date for folks that qualified for the original (>$500 sales) program?

Thanks
Title: Re: Adobe Stock Creative Cloud Bonus Program
Post by: gnirtS on August 17, 2019, 11:25
The first one says published Last published: 2018 August 9

The second link is published August 2019.

So i assume the first one applies to the codes issued in 2018?

Clarification would be helpful.

Hey Mat,

I'm also confused. Can you please help me with this:

I've received the "Creative Cloud Bonus" code last year. I haven't activated the code yet. I tried to activate it now and it says it's expired.

But here is the email I've received from Adobe:

"Dear -------,
 
Last August the Adobe Stock team launched a Creative Cloud giveaway program to reward our top contributors. Congratulations, you are one of them!
You were awarded a 12 month free Creative Cloud subscription, and received an email from [email protected] with your redemption code. We noticed that you havenít redeemed the code yet to start your free access to Lightroom CC, Photoshop CC, and more.
In case you overlooked the previous email, your code is -----. You have until July 2021 to redeem it. ..."


So as stated in this email I've received from you, the code should still be valid.

Can you please help me with this?

It has worked. I have contacted the support (the Adobe Stock support), they promised me a new key and in two days, the new key was in my inbox. I have applied that and even though it was set correctly, it still has been showing that my next billing is next week for a while. After few hours, everything corrected itself and now it is showing that the next billing is in September 2020. Great. Thanks, Adobe :-)

Yes, regardless of whether or not you've used a code in 2018, you should be eligible for a new code in 2019 if you meet the required number of uploads.
The code will be sent automatically some weeks after you've reached the target, according to the FAQ.

The email is sent from: AdobeStockContributor.com
Once clicked it forwards to: adobepartneroffer.com
And finally resolves to Adobe's actual website.

I get that Adobe have several websites and want to track clicks, but I'm really not keen on following this one through until I have someone say this is legit.

Just wait until your current subscription is about to run out, then use this code to extend your subscription another year.

I happened to be lucky enough that the code came less than a week before I was to have to pay for the next year.

yes the squeaky wheel gets the grease and i truly hope adobe wakes up and offers a stand alone version for illustrators. the broken record approach of whiney poor me rhetoric is not going to grease anything.

FWIW i am not an illustrator. this is nothing more than poor decision making in regards to the client base adobe relies on for profit and the contributors that support adobe stock. my vote is adobe should offer one offer all provided they meet the criteria. adobe, this is a fail in my books.
Title: Re: Adobe Stock Creative Cloud Bonus Program

I really do not get it. The company is giving some of its contributors free software (nobody forced Adobe to do so and it is not its obligation) and so many people are complaining and considering it as fail etc.

Of course, it would be fine if there is an illustrator bonus program as well and/or ability to purchase various Adobe softwares separately instead of buying all applications at once (why one cannot buy Photoshop/Illustrator or Photoshop/Premiere bundle at some reasonable price...) but to consider not giving free software for all as a fail? I do not think so.

Completely agree.
Everybody likes to be payed for his works. Is it not this the reason why every day there are complaints about how poor is the monet that agency is paying us.
And now there is Adobe that give away for free high value software for contributors. It's a great move in my opinion. They take care of contributors.
They are interested in more photos and clips, so this is the reason. Maybe they are not interested in more illustration arts, I don't know, but it's completely up to them to choose what and when give away.

Complaints for this is a nonsense. Everyone in this forum want to be payed for his work. Also Adobe want to be payed for its software. Of course they think that the giveaway can give them more advantage in long run.

BTW I received my code, thanks Adobe, another good move!

And I hope Adobe to correct this.

I hope so 😊 but "indipendent" doesn't means that every single compliant is the right one 😏

We support each other and we are equally members as contributors to agencies. Or artists or whatever the right name is. There is are no discriminations right?

For sure, but this is a commercial business and Adobe, like everyone else, take decision for its own business model, as each one of us do.
We (contributors) are not friends, we work in a high competitive business.
And they (Adobe and other agencies) work in a high competitive world too.
We make our choice and selection. They do the same.
That's all

Of course I think it would be great from Adobe to give to illustrator artists a nice rewards as they do for photographers and video makers but... This is a commercial business choice, not a gift for everyone. They do what is good for them, and this is very normal. Also for us.

Hi Matt,
I can't seem to find an answer to these questions anywhere, and while I think I know the answer, what content is included in each of the giveaways.
For example do animations or motion templates qualify as "video assets"?
Does the photography plan include all assets (including video and illustration)?
Is video that is included in the photography plan then still available to be counted for the complete plan?
Thanks, and also thanks to Adobe for resolving my issue last year and coming through with the giveaway.

As a joke i would reply that if it isn't written in the contract it doesn't count.

It is indeed a nice move from Adobe side and i envy those that get it.
But considering overall time uploading and correct submitting
just for the free code don't justify the effort.
Assuming no sales starting over from a blank portfolio.


There are various ways to get a free subscription, e.g. Adobe editing contest.
And that is a great opportunity to remind Matt that Greece EU wasn't included last year.
Just saying....

Mat is the ultimate authority but I can say that years ago when I had more than the two allowed computers, running something Adobe, I had to write to support and have them deactivate one computer, before I could change the registration to a different computer. Whatever the limit for CC, I thought it was two systems? You will need to deactivate one before you can activate a new one.

This year's code is valid 12 months from when you receive it. Once you redeem it the software is activated for 12 months. Don't worry I haven't redeemed last year's yet never mind this year's.

Thank you Pablito



I still don't know the system. I don't know if the link takes me to the 12-month counter, or simply gives you a code. I don't know if the period starts since the code is granted or since the cloud registration is done or since the link is clicked. I don't know if in February 2020 the link doesn't work anymore. I don't know if the link gives you the code and can be saved until February 2020.

I'm afraid I have two options, give the link now and find out or activate the link in February and find out what's going on.

? Which link are you talking about?
You should receive your CODE (not link) via mail.
Then use it when you want (in one year) via adobe account. That's all.

@Tenebroso You should have twelve months to click on that link and start your free subscription. At least if you already have a (paid) subscription and are logged in you don't see a code which you could enter somewhere later. It was more like okay, code redeemed, next payment due in a year. Don't remember what it was like last year, but this time at least for me it was like that.

What about animating your illustrations and uploading it as video? If your subject matter is suitable, you could try that.

Are photographers required to animate their photos to get Photoshop?

Please explain why only one group of contributorsóa very successful group that consistently brings in a lot of sales for stock sitesóare left out of this.

I reached 300 videos for 2019 in August, But haven't received the all apps bonus yet. It's been almost 8 weeks. Are the bonuses sent out individually based on when you reached the threshold or are they sent out in batches so some might get them in less time than the 6-8 week time frame and others longer than the 6-8 week time frame?

This is the answer I got after contacting support (as advised by Mat):

Not all contributors who qualify have received bonus codes yet.

It is possible that you may be included in the next wave of emails with bonus codes that are to be sent out, however, we do not have a timeline for when that will be.

If you do not receive an email with a bonus code then it is most likely because the promotions department did not feel as though your account met the requirements.

Ultimately, it is up to the promotions department to determine which accounts will receive bonus codes. We have no influence over their determinations nor can we generate bonus codes.

Thanks for sharing this @ouatedeP. I will follow up with you offline to get some more information about who you were communicating with to make sure the language in our email responses is updated. I'm sorry about the confusion.

This isn't a subjective or conditional offer. If you qualify for the bonus code by having 300 files approved in 2019 with a 50% or higher approval ratio you WILL be getting a code. Regarding the timing for when you will get the bonus...The codes are sent out in batches at a predetermined time that isn't necessarily in tandem with the exact time you qualify. There is generally a gap between when you qualify and when your bonus code is emailed. In some cases, artists that have qualified and were sent the bonus code found them in their spam folder so if you feel you should have already received yours, be sure to check there first.

I hope this clears it up for you. Thanks again!

Mat Hayward

Hi Mat I received a quote last year December Iíve not used it yet and tried this morning but it told me itís expired. Iíve never used the code before.

Maybe I'm being too impatient but I wanted to ask. I had my last batch of images accepted over a week ago and now have over the 300 required images accepted for 2019. I haven't heard anything from Adobe yet so I was wondering if I need to just be patient and wait longer or if there's anything additional that I need to do.

Thanks!

Bonus codes are sent out in waves and are not issued immediately when you reach the threshold. If you met the requirement, we'll send you a code shortly.

Kind regards,

Mat Hayward

I received an email for the Creative Cloud Photography bonus saying it is good for 12 months (Thank you!!). My email doesn't actually have a code, it has a "redeem now" button. I assume this is normal?

When you click on Redeem Now, it takes you to the redemption page redeem.adobe.com and auto-populates your code. If you have the exact same Creative Cloud Photography subscription as you received via the bonus, you can redeem the code now, it will push out your next billing by 12 months. Also if you received a Photography plan bonus code for 2018 which is still active and you got another one in 2019, you can also redeem it now, these are stackable.
But if you have a different plan, such as a Creative Cloud All Apps plan and you redeem the Photography plan - both plans would run in parallel, which doesn't make sense. In this case it's better to wait with the redemption until your paid plan ends or comes up for renewal.

Once again - thank you Adobe and Matt.

I've just redeemed this year's code (last year's can wait till this one expires)
Everything worked brilliantly. I had been using CS6 and on opening PP2020 it warned me that the graphics driver was not up to the job. Luckily I was able to get a new driver (from Nvidia) that PP2020 is happy with.

I used the Adobe installer - and had a choice of which software and which version I wanted. As I have PP CS6, LR6 and PS5.5 I can keep them on the same computer side by side so can always go back to them in the future if the subscription gets too high or to use old projects as things are not backward compatible.

I might even dabble with Audition and AE

Im using a CC code from last year with no problem and have just received a new code for the next year.

My question is, if i redeem that code *now* will it extend my subscription by a further 12 months automatically (in which case i may as well do it) OR will it run in parallel so i'll effectively lose it (in which case, im better off waiting).

Its for an identical package (CC all apps).

It will extend it (move the billing date one year further). Mat has already answered it several times. So, I have my Photoshop for free until September 2021 :) It does not work that way if you have codes for different plans. In such a case, they run in parallel

On December 27th, I had 300 videos and yesterday I received All Apps code and link by email and immediately activated it. Please do this every year. Thank you so much.  :)

Yay, out of the blue, I got my code yesterday! Actually I didn't expect that, because I thought my chance had gone. A very classy move by Adobe - thank you very much, I really appreciate it!  8)

Thanks Adobe! Got the email.

A question for Mat:

I was keywording a bunch of images today that I uploaded in 2019 but did not finish tagging, so they were still in my "to submit" queue. If Adobe has the Creative Cloud Bonus Program again in 2020, will those images be counted as 2020 uploads? I hope to add a lot more than 300 images in 2020, assuming I will qualify for illustrative editorial during the year, but you never know, and I want to keep track properly for this year. Thanks.

It's a good question. I think the system that automatically determines who is qualified would not count those images. Not 100% sure on that though. Why cut it so close? Keep uploading all year long! :)

It's not a great idea to keep uploaded content unsubmitted in general. The system looks at the upload date to determine where it's at in search. If it sits in your queue for 6 months, the system will see it as a 6 month old photo with no view or download history which implies it's not good and pushed it deeper into search. It's easier said than done I know, I've got files that have been sitting in my queue for a VERY long time.

Sorry if this was discussed before, I have this note on my dashboard to redeem my creative cloud code.
Is this for last year and automated for everyone? I haven't asked for it, so I don't know how it works?

It is the last year code, at least in my case. When I tried to use it, it has alerted me that it was already activated in the past.

No, the Creative Cloud bonus program was for contributors to the core collection.

Kind regards,
