About this Event

Join A+E Networks, Adobe, and college students across the nation in a beginner-friendly tournament to identify solutions that matter! Design an experience and present your project to industry experts for insightful feedback. Compete in this weekend-long designathon and you may win prizes and bragging rights!

Work with the A+E Networks team and Adobe in this Jam from campus, from home, or anywhere you choose. Or make it a party and organize 20 or more students at the kick off on campus and get free pizza for your group (email us for details)! The event will be live-streamed on Facebook so your friends and family can witness your path to victory.


What could be more fun than Jamming with a global entertainment brand? A+E Networks® is a collection of culture brands that includes A&E®, HISTORY®, Lifetime®, Lifetime Movies™, FYI™, Vice TV and BIOGRAPHY®, and will challenge you to change the way you think about user experience.


You MUST be a currently-enrolled student of an accredited college or university in the United States or Canada and register with a VALID campus-issued email address (.edu or equivalent). Registrants who are not part of a team of 2 or more are not able to participate.


Attend two 2-hour sessions online and work with your 2 to 3-person team to compete, from anywhere you like, over the weekend.

  • Kick Off: Friday, February 21 – 4:00 pm ET/1:00 pm PT At this 2-hour kick off, you’ll get a quick training session and learn how to create a simple interactive mobile prototype! And then... A+E Networks will reveal the Jam challenge! Over the weekend, your 2- to 3-person team will collaborate on an app prototype and produce a full user experience. Submissions are due on Sunday, February 23 at 2pm ET/11am PT.
  • Finale: Monday, February 24 – 4:00 pm ET/1:00 pm PT Join the 2-hour presentation and awards ceremony to find out if you’ve made it to the finale, present your work live on-screen to the A+E Networks judges, get realtime feedback, and if you win... go home with some serious gift card cred in your pocket.
