In the format, we have introduced some changes that will help make the contest more interesting and gives you a chance to win more prizes. One such addition is CheckPoints.

Checkpoint – a place where travelers stop for inspection and clearance

There are 2 checkpoints in Adobe riathon ’08.


As you might be aware, the Adobe riathon ’08 final judgment and prize distribution was postponed from November 29th, 2008 due to the Mumbai terror attacks. In the wake of such an unfortunate incident, we thought it was best to not have any kind of celebration or gala function.

  • Why is this event postponed?

  • Due to the recent terror attacks in Mumbai and the security threat that it has raised, Adobe has decided to postpone the evaluation and prize distribution ceremony of the “Adobe riathon ’08” to a later date.
