Get The Chance To Be Mentored By Paloma Faith With Samsung’s Launching People initiative

Love Music? Samsung are giving you the chance to be mentored by Paloma Faith.

Launching People is an initiative to help emerging talent across food, film, music and photography.

Paloma Faith 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.”

The mentors, together with Samsung will be scouring the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland 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 documented in a television series to air later this year.

So, if you’ve got a great idea and think you have what it takes to impress our talented panel of mentors, then pitch us your project via www.launchingpeople.co.uk between now and Thursday 6th March 2014. Gizzi, Idris, Paloma and Rankin will each choose one person to work with one-on-one, helping to bring their ideas to life and launch their project.

Watch below Paloma Faith talk about what she's most looking forward to with Launching People:
