Two students from the University of Westminster qualified for the UK and Ireland regional final at this year’s Adobe Certified Associate World Championship, with one of them achieving second place in the competition. 

The UK and Ireland regional final for the ACA World Championships was held on 14 June at the Design Museum, Kensington. Selection of participants for the event was based on scores achieved from the Adobe Certified Associate qualification offered to students at the University.

Jackie Watson, student on the Computer Games Development BSc Honours course and Jonathan Pryke from Radio and Digital Production BA Honours qualified for this year's ACA World Championship finals, with Jonathan achieving second place and receiving a Microsoft Surface Pro Laptop as an award.

The event saw the 20 finalists from institutions countrywide compete in a design challenge where they were given instructions, project requirements, and assets to complete a real–world design challenge, using Adobe Creative Cloud software.

Westminster has achieved a history of success in this annual event, with our students securing a place in the top three for three consecutive years – first place in 2015, third place in 2016 and second place this year.

All Westminster students have the opportunity to qualify as an Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) in Adobe Creative Cloud Software through training provided by the University. On successful completion of the training students receive the ACA certification, which represents an industry standard and a globally recognised qualification.
