Each year, we have loads of teachers who come to the Photoshop World Conference, and even teachers who bring groups of students to the event, but here’s an opportunity for both: if you’re an educator and you have a star student that you think could really benefit from attending this summer’s Photoshop World 2017 Conference in Orlando, Florida (April 20-22, 2017), you can submit them for one of the twenty-five student full-conference pass scholarships we award each year. Here are the details:
The Photoshop World Student Scholarship Program has been created to give promising students the opportunity to expand their Photoshop, graphic design, photography and creative skills by attending the Photoshop World Conference, a three-day conference offering invaluable training sessions led by the world’s leading experts in the creative industry.
Each year, KelbyOne awards scholarships to talented students from across the country. The recipients receive free full conference admission, as well as a one-year membership to KelbyOne (which includes a subscription to Photoshop User magazine). The scholarship is valued at $998.
The scholarships are awarded to 25 students based on a direct recommendation from their teacher. We’re looking to award these scholarships to the most deserving students based on talent, potential and passion and if you would like to nominate one of your best and brightest for a scholarship, please share a few words (below) about why the student you are nominating would make an excellent choice as a scholarship recipient.
Deadline date for submissions is at 11:59 PM (ET) on Monday, March 6, 2017. If you have already submitted an application prior to March 6th, and have been chosen, you will be notified by a KelbyOne representative by Friday, March 10, 2017.
Here’s a link to the submission form.
Panel Discussion For Students
Last year, for the first time ever, we hosted a special panel just for students about getting photography work after graduation, and the panel had some of the best working pros in the business (open to all registered students at the conference). Well, the panel was such a big hit, we’re bringing it back again this year, so if your student wins a scholarship, make sure they attend this special panel created just for them.

Hope you all have a rockin’ Monday!
