Samsung teams up with Idris Elba, Paloma Faith and more to find UK talent

Idris Elba, Paloma Faith, Gizzi Erskine and Rankin will mentor Samsung’s undiscovered British and Irish talent.

‘Launching People’ will see 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. The chosen candidates will work with one of the four mentors to collaborate on a unique project.

Those interested in pitching a project can do so at www.launchingpeople.co.uk between now and Thursday, March 6th, 2014.

“I’m looking for someone that wants to tell a story and inspire others. They might have an idea that they’re not quite sure how to take to the next level. If I represent anything, it’s someone who dreamed big and achieved those dreams. If anyone out there has a similar aspiration, then I want to hear from them,” said Elba.

The ‘Launching People’ project will be documented in a television series to air later this year.
