About this Event

Use Adobe XD to design an experience and present your project to industry experts for insightful feedback and you may win prizes and bragging rights!

Join Airbnb, Adobe, and college students across the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada in a beginner-friendly designathon to identify solutions that matter. Create a team, invite up to 2 friends to join your team, and then get details before we begin! No experience necessary.


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, April 24 – 9:00 am PT / 12:00 pm ET/ 4:00 pm GT 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... Airbnb 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, April 26.
  • Finale: Monday, April 27 – 9:00 am PT / 12:00 pm ET/ 4:00 pm GT
  • 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 Airbnb judges, get realtime feedback, and if you win... go home with some serious gift card cred in your pocket.
