Sorry about the upcoming rant, but something bothers me about the eligibility requirements. :\Art /must/ be in Photoshop format? I'm sure not all artists can afford Photoshop ($700), especially hobby artists.None of the other mediums require several hundred dollars of equipment/software to even be /eligible/. Movies should be required to be submitted in Final Cut Pro format and music in Logic Studio Pro format if that's the case...I mean, even the prize is a copy of Photoshop (granted, with the rest of the suite). Why would they need that as a prize if they already have it?Sorry again if it's off-topic. Just thought it had to be said. :\

Photoshop Elements is available for around $50 on Amazon, and students can get a full version of Photoshop for around $200. Also, free trials do exist, so if you're strapped for cash but want to submit, just download that and be sure to finish the project within the next 30 days. I work in Photoshop and I only have CS3, so I'd LOVE to get CS4 as a prize. A free upgrade? Hells ya.

Or you can just use GIMP. It's free and you can save the files as photoshop images.

@Kelowa- " be sure to finish the project within the next 30 days".I'd hope so, seeing how the deadline is on the 31st of July...
