It’s that time of year again students – back to school! While some of you are experiencing mixed emotions right now, we encourage you to be optimistic and get excited, as the beginning of a new school year brings endless possibility. That’s why we’re challenging you to showcase your passion – outside of classwork, what will you focus on in the year ahead?

For inspiration, we’ve teamed up with three graphic designers — Shelly Kim, Elizabeth Gray, and Ian Barnard — to create remixable Instagram Story templates in Adobe Spark (see below). Now we’re asking you to showcase your passion and individuality by remixing one of these templates in Spark and sharing it on Instagram for the chance to win an iPad Mini and Creative Cloud subscription.

Whether you’re promoting a passion project, developing your personal brand or looking for a fun way to connect with your followers, we can’t wait to see how you express yourself.
