Scan gets creative with The Prince’s Trust

Last year, Scan joined up with Adobe to support the UK’s leading youth charity, The Prince’s Trust. Adobe Creative Cause was a competition that helped raise awareness and much needed funds to carry on the important work The Prince’s Trust perform. With your help we raised over £16,000 and discovered a wealth of young talent within the Adobe community.

The call for entries went out in September and by closing date of 1st of December Adobe had collected over 500 #AdobeCreativeCause submissions, each one taking its inspiration from the work carried out by The Prince’s Trust. Just before the Christmas holidays kicked in we travelled down to Adobe HQ in Maidenhead to help choose the winner of the Adobe Creative Cause competition.

It was a close call, but the eventual (and deserving) winner was Stuart Burton from the West Midlands. Amongst the haul of prizes delivered in time for Xmas morning was a Scan 3XS Ultimate 2D Plus workstation hooked up to a Logickeyboard Photoshop layout keyboard, a Manfrotto RedBee backpack and MVH500 Triopd for the newly minted Canon 5D mkIV and BenQ 4K monitor provided by the other competition sponsors, plus a 1 year free subscription to Adobe CC and Adobe Stock.

”It’s hard to put it into words!” said Stuart during a recent interview, ”Adobe must see a lot of inspiring work on a daily basis and for the judges to select mine out of hundreds of other great entries was amazing, and for such a big cause as the Prince’s Trust too. The prize was great; It’s a great way to end the year and start the new one with a powerful image editing PC and camera kit to help me improve on my photography. All the goodies in this prize have been high end so I’m extremely pleased to have my hands on them to inspire some more creative work in 2017. The PC will definitely speed up my work flow, as my current one is getting on a bit now and is sluggish when running multiple software.”

During the her Christmas speech, and marking The Prince’s Trust’s 40th anniversary, HM The Queen mentioned the fantastic work the Prince’s Trust do to empower young people to overcome the challenges of poverty, abuse and mental health, to make positive changes to help transform their lives. Scan are very proud to be a part of that success and support the Creative Cause competition. It’s never too late to make a difference. Last year the Prince’s Trust helped over 56,000 young people.
