To coincide with National Cat Day, Adobe Japan has launched a creative social media photo contest on the theme of cats: the Adobe Nyan Contest 2023 ("nyan" being Japanese for "meow"). This covers both photography and videography, and doesn't discriminate on how the content is captured, whether through a professional camera or your basic smartphone camera. BUT - there is a small catch.

When editing your submission, it must have been processed using some form of Adobe Creative Cloud software, including but not limited to Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere Rush, Premier Pro, and Adobe Express to name just a few. Entries not utilizing Adobe software are at risk of being excluded.
