View submitted artwork from our Design Contest winners and finalists! The Design Contest asked artists, designers or anyone with a vision for what San Jose is today and what it could be tomorrow to create visual expressions of their San Jose experiences and submit them to the contest. The Knight Foundation awards each of these winners with $500 and Adobe extends these awards with year-long subscriptions to Adobe Creative Cloud.
