Pretty Photoshop Actions Bi-annual Scholarship


Pretty Photoshop Actions recognizes the importance of higher education and the role it plays in our personal and professional fulfillment. That's why we are so excited to announce the Pretty Photoshop Actions $500 bi-annual scholarship (awarded twice per year). This ongoing scholarship provides college and university students an opportunity to earn money to further their education and achieve their goals! The deadline for scholarship entries is bi-annually on April 15 and October 15. The winning entry will be published on Pretty Actions Blog. The winner will be notified by e-mail three weeks after the deadline. Scholarship entries will be carefully reviewed by a team of judges at PhotoshopActions.com. The scholarship will be paid out in the amount of $500 (U.S.) to each bi-annual winner, in the form of a co-payable check that will be mailed to the college or university attended by the winning student. Carefully research and compose an essay style Adobe Photoshop tutorial of 800 to 1,000 words, with screenshots and photos included to illustrate your points on one of the following topics. You must either own copyright to the images, or have written permission to use the images included in your essay. Use proper grammar and punctuation. Choose a topic for your tutorial essay: How Photoshop has changed photography; How to re-touch skin in Photoshop for photographers; Favorite tips for enhancing color in Photoshop; Photoshop overlay ideas for adding WOW to your portraits. Eligible student entries are as follows: you should presently be a senior in high school, or be transitioning from high school to a college or university; or be already enrolled in a college or university inside the United States or Canada. Employees and their immediate family members of PhotoshopActions.com are not eligible to participate.
