Had a short intimate dinner (and chikahan) with Samsung and Folded & Hung peeps last night at The Establishment, The Fort. These two powerhouse brands have teamed up to inspire the youth in following their dreams and making them into reality. How? By this contest that has prizes such as cash, gadgets, and your slogan (entry) being printed on F&H hoodies such as the one below.
Read below to find out how you can join:
With its “I Imagine” campaign, Samsung focuses on the young generation’s passions, concerns and outlooks. Encouraging the Filipino youth to speak-up and voice-out their opinions, thoughts, feelings and ideas, the leading innovator in digital electronics media creates a dynamic force that just brims with sheer ingenuity. Logging in on www.samsung.com/ph directs you to a world filled with bright promises!
Metro Manila college students, currently enrolled this school year, can register and create their own I Imagine slogan by completing the statement: “I Imagine…“. Aside from being your own shout-out creator, you can also vote for other “I Imagine” shout-outs posted on the site. The shout-outs, whether in English or Filipino, must fall under one of three categories: Talk, for shout-outs that express emotions, ideas, thoughts, dreams, hopes and ambitions; Play, for shout-outs that express how life is experienced through love of music, sports, fashion and the arts; and, Love, for shout-outs that express how bonds are formed with family and friends through shared interests and passions. Only one slogan can be accepted for each category. Submissions will be accepted until November 30, 2009.
Samsung amplifies the Filipno youths’ voice as the winning statements will be printed on Folded & Hung exclusively designed Samsung “I Imagine” hoodies available at participating Folded & Hung stores in the Metro. Individual winners (one per category) will take home exciting prizes such as P30,000 cash, the Samsung Corby mobile phone, Samsung ST500 Dual LCD Camera, Samsung CLP-315 printer, Samsung LapFit LD190G monitor, 5 Samsung “I Imagine” hoodies to keep or giveaway, and P10,000 worth of gift certificates from Folded & Hung. Likewise, the schools of the respective winners will each receive a Samsung LCD monitor.
Criteria for judging will be based on the following: Relevance to the Chosen Category (40%), Creativity (40%) and the Total number of online votes (20%).
What’s more, all who register to the campaign, whether to upload their own shout-out or simply vote for posted shout-outs will entitle them to a chance to win cool Samsung gadgets. Each registration is equivalent to one raffle entry which will be drawn on December 15, 2009. Up to 500 Samsung I Imagine hoodies, 20 Samsung phones and 20 Samsung DVD players are also up for grabs.
Overflowing food and drinks were provided; with laptops for us to check out the contest website.
I was able to catch up with old colleagues from ABS-CBN Publishing. Nana of Chalk was seated (photo above).
