Launching People

Samsung has 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. Sky 1 HD has also announced the commissioning of Launching People as part of Samsung's project.  So what is it all about?  Launching People is an exciting new mentor programme that seeks to find undiscovered British and Irish talents.  The chosen candidates will work with one of four amazing mentors to collaborate on a unique project.  

They have called in the heavy weights to act as mentors.  For the foodies the amazing Gizzi Erskine is taking the helm.  Oh how I wish I was a budding chef though I would be more interested in talking pretty dresses and gazing at her perfect up do.  The photographers will be in very safe hands with none other than Rankin, world famous portrait and fashion photographer.  Wowzers.  Again I wish I actually knew how to use my camera!  Lots of you are amazing at both of these skills, please apply!  I wanna see you on my (Samsung, ha!) television screen.  Award winning actor and producer Idris Elba heads up the film category with singer songwriter Paloma Faith overseeing the musicians.  The whole process will be captured in the television series which will air in the Spring.


The mentors, together with Samsung, will be looking for extraordinary potential and original ideas, if you fit the bill and you're interested in applying then pitch your project at from now until Thursday 6th March and one lucky person in each category will work one-on-one with their mentor to help launch their project.   For more information  and to check out the competition be sure to visit Launching People, there are some amazing entries! You can also vote for your favourites, the winner of the peoples choice for each category win Samsung technology and expert tuition to the value of £2000.  If you enter let me know, I would love to support you and help drum up votes via twitter.  What are you waiting for?!
