Samsung Launching People Initiative Gives You The Chance To Be Mentored By Rankin

Friday 07 February 2014
Words Spindle

Here at Spindle we love promoting emerging talent, so we were very excited when we heard about Samsung’s Launching People initiative, which aims to nurture the next wave of up and coming British talent. 

Through mentorship with industry pros like internationally renowned photographer Rankin, the Launching People Initiative is seeking people full of brilliant ideas, creative energy and unbridled passion for what they love. Then, through one-on-one work with Rankin and access to some of Samsung’s most cutting-edge technology, they’ll help you create something amazing. The collaborative journey towards your final project will also be documented as part of a TV series to air later on in 2014, giving you and your great ideas even more exposure.

All you need to do to be in with a chance of being mentored by Rankin himself is to make a 2 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.

Rankin says “I want to know what they do that’s different, that’s interesting.” Having initially studied to be an accountant, Rankin then decided to pursue his true passion of photography. After meeting Jefferson Hack at college, they decided to create Dazed & Confused magazine – which is running to this day. Now, he’s regarded as one of the foremost fashion and portrait photographers in the world, having photographed Madonna, The Rolling Stones and The Queen herself. Rankin is a man who knows what he wants – so now is your chance to impress him and get the opportunity to work alongside him.

You have until March 6th to submit your video before Rankin chooses one person to work with one-to-one and help them to bring their dream project to life.

Check out Rankin’s video below and hear why he’s so passionate about discovering fresh talent, and go to LaunchingPeople.co.uk to upload your video.
