The Power of Words Challenge


The DLLF Graphic Competition will commence on May 1, 2023 and finish on May 31, 2023. This design competition challenges artists to use Midjourney and Adobe Photoshop to create unique artwork, inspired by a set of key words. The goal of the challenge is for students to transform the key words into a visually stunning and creative piece of art, based on AI generated images from Midjourney, using Adobe Photoshop’s powerful editing features.

This Midjourney design competition is a unique opportunity for artists to challenge themselves and create something truly original using an AI tool and Adobe Photoshop’s powerful features. By using key words as inspiration, documenting their progress along the way, and explaining how they used Photoshop to enhance their artwork, artists can produce work that is both visually stunning and creatively innovative.

The competition has been made possible by the generous support of the DLLF’s corporate sponsor, Grapheast Elite Education, the Adobe Distribution Partner in the MENA region.


The students’ artwork has to be created using Midjourney and Adobe Photoshop.

Artists should document their Midjourney process by sharing progress (a before and after) of their work with a brief explanation.
