Behance Wins a Webby Award for Self-Promotion/Portfolio

The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet, and we’re thrilled to be included among this year’s incredible list of winners! Behance won the ‘Self-Promotion/Portfolio’ award, which means we’re on the right path to help creatives achieve the exposure they deserve. That said, this is just the beginning and our team is hard at work on a number of updates, projects and new features that we can’t wait to share. Stay tuned!

Learn more about the Webbys and check out the other amazing winners and nominees here.

New Feature: Link a Project to a Work In Progress

One of our newest features allows you to easily link a new or existing project to a Work-In-Progress (WIP).  In case you haven’t used it, the Work-in-Progress feature allows you to get instant feedback by uploading a snapshot of your work in progress. You can continue to add future revisions in the same WIP. Now, you can link a finished project to a Work-In-Progress to help you show off the process behind a project.

In your Portfolio page, hover over a Project and click Edit Project.  At the top right of the Edit page, click Settings.  From there, look on the bottom right and click Link to WIP.  Select the appropriate WIP and Save Changes.  After saving, view your project to see a new module marked ”View Work In Progress” on the right hand column with a link to the appropriate WIP. Also, if a user is viewing a WIP that has a Project linked to it, there will be a View Full Project link at the bottom of the WIP.

Quick Update: Behance & Adobe (& Some Creative Cloud News)

Scott Belsky, Co-Founder & Head of Behance, VP – Product-Community, Adobe

We became part of the Adobe family a few months ago. While we have a lot of new acronyms and systems to learn, we’ve been pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome and bounty of ideas from across the company. There is also a strong desire to better understand the creative community’s needs, take a more design-centric approach to product, and support the creative process in new ways. Adobe reaches millions of creative people around the world every day, and our team at Behance has the opportunity to help connect the creative world throughout the creative process. We feel at home, and now we’ve got a lot of work to do!

In the year ahead, here’s what you can expect from our team at Behance:

  1. The Behance platform is going to get a lot better, faster, and offer even more exposure for your work. We have a full roadmap of improvements and features that help you connect with your peers and with career opportunity. We’re excited.
  2. We will start integrating some of Behance’s best community features into Adobe tools. Want feedback? Adding new work to your portfolio? We want to make this more efficient and more integrated into your everyday workflow. Stay tuned for updates in May!
  3. We have grand plans for ProSite – and other “Pro” features – that will make Behance a more powerful utility for creative careers. We’ve got a long list of enhancements and features that will bring online portfolios to a whole new level.

We are also working closely with our new colleagues at Adobe to make the “Creative Cloud” offering more integrated into our everyday workflow. For those of you that don’t know, Creative Cloud is a subscription service for all of Adobe’s creative applications (Photoshop, Illustrator, and the list goes on…) for a low monthly fee. Creative Cloud also keeps your applications up-to-date with frequent updates and new features as they are ready (no more waiting 16+ months for the latest and greatest). But the vision for Creative Cloud is about much more than the apps themselves. Ultimately, the service should make the entire creative process more seamless and collaborative. The roadmap ahead is amazing, and we hope to share updates in a few months.

Over time, we also want to offer some of the best benefits of Behance as part of Adobe’s Creative Cloud service. Starting today, ProSite (normally $99/year) will be available at no additional cost for Creative Cloud paid members. For those of you that don’t know, ProSite transforms your public Behance portfolio into a fully customized personal portfolio site with your own URL. You can design an incredible portfolio site that stays in sync with your projects on Behance, increasing your efficiency and helping your work get more exposure from Behance’s 18+ Million visitors every month.

If you’re ready to get started building and customizing your Behance ProSite, just a few quick steps:

  1. Login and go to the Apps page on
  2. Find the ProSite icon under “Other Services” and click on the “Get Started” link
  3. You’ll be brought to the ProSite welcome page on Behance, where you can either log in or sign up for Behance to build your portfolio and launch your ProSite when you’re ready

We will be offering additional “Pro” features over the coming year, and these will also be made available to all Creative Cloud paid members. If you want to learn more about the Creative Cloud offering, visit

Needless to say, this is just the beginning… Our team at Behance is working on some of the most exciting projects of our professional lives right now. We can’t wait to show you.
