Through mentorship with industry pros like singer-songwriter Paloma Faith, Samsung’s Launching People Initiative is seeking people full of brilliant ideas, creative energy and unbridled passion for what they love. Could this be you?
If so, through one-on-one work with Paloma and access to some of Samsung’s most cutting-edge technology, you will be helped to create something amazing. The collaborative journey towards a final project will also be documented as part of a TV series to air later on in 2014, giving you and your great ideas the chance to gain further exposure.
Paloma says: “I’m really looking for something that we’ve not seen in a British artist before. What’s important to me is that the person has something innovative to offer, something that defies genre. I’m looking for outsiders. I love and relate to outsiders. The thought of finding someone like that excites me.”
All you need to do to be in with a chance of being mentored by Paloma herself is to make a two minute video and upload it to LaunchingPeople.co.uk. Tell them a bit about yourself, what you’re passionate about and your idea for an amazing project.
Submissions are open until Thursday 6th March and the final four will feature in a television series which will air on TV in spring this year. There will also be a ‘People’s Choice’ winner per category, voted for by the public on Facebook, who will receive personal tuition and Samsung products that will support them in pursuing their dreams. The ‘People’s Choice’ winners will be announced on Friday 7th March.
