Samsung "Launching People" Project..

So, everyone's heard of Samsung, right? Those technofolks are always coming up with new and exciting products to launch. People are using their products on a daily basis to come up with new and exciting idea - you might even be one of those people.

If so, I have information about a new project which may interest you. 'Launching People' is a search for new and undiscovered talent. Samsung have joined forces with some of the UK's hottest talent to give people with a passion for food, film, music and photography, the opportunity of a lifetime.

The ‘Launching People’ project will see pop-up chef and Sunday Times cook Gizzi Erskine, award-winning actor and producer Idris Elba, singer-songwriter Paloma Faith and portrait and fashion photographer Rankin, search for undiscovered British and Irish talent. They will act as mentors as they help food lovers, budding film makers, musical game changers and picture takers launch their brilliant ideas.
The mentors, together with Samsung will be looking to find people with extraordinary potential and original ideas. The chosen candidates will work with one of the four inspirational mentors to collaborate on a unique project. Their journey, from meeting the mentors to the launch of their project, will be captured in a television series, LAUNCHING PEOPLE (w/t), produced by Fresh One, part of the Jamie Oliver Media Group, for Sky 1 HD and will air in the spring.


So, are you interested? Do you have a talent for photography which could impress Rankin himself?
If you think you do, here's how you can get involved:

To apply, you'll need to make a 2 minute video all about you and your ambition. This is your chance to show off your passion, personality and your project idea, to get the attention of one of the mentors. Then, you need an image and a bit of copy, and you're ready to upload your submission. More information can be found here:

What can you win?

1. The mentors will select four candidates with whom they’ll work one-to-one. The chosen protégés will spend 2-3 weeks together, working closely with their mentors in a house fully furnished with Samsung’s latest technology on their personal projects, building towards a grand launch event and making their ideas and ambitions a reality.

2. And the public will get to vote for one winner in each category to receive £500 for personal tuition and Samsung technology up to the value of £2000.

Let me know if you enter - I'd love to see your videos!
