On May 21, in two dozen cities around the world — from Shanghai and Tel Aviv to New York and Dubai — young creatives gathered to have their work reviewed and receive advice from some of the industry’s most highly regarded Creative Directors. It was all a part of ADC’s 12th annual global Portfolio Night, and through our partnership, Shutterstock was there (everywhere) too.

At each Portfolio Night event, attendees had the opportunity to draw on our trademark “viewfinder” napkins, with their #pn12 hashtagged creations giving them a chance to win a one-month Shutterstock subscription. Additionally, the one Grand Prize global winner also takes home a $200 American Express gift card.

Check out some of the winning entries below, and then click through to our winners’ gallery to see all the rest. Who ever said doodling doesn’t pay?
