The ACA World Championship presented by Certiport Inc. is a global competition that tests students’ design skills using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. Top students were invited to represent their respective countries at the World Championship where they  create a designated design project for Certiport’s chosen non-profit client.
