HP competition winner to get chance to play at Santana gig
Design Your Personal Life competition winner to perform live at Dubai Santana concert
HP will give the winner of its ‘Design Your Personal Life' competition the opportunity to perform live at the Carlos Santana concert taking place in Dubai next month.
The Design Your Personal Life competition gives young people in the UAE the chance to upload their own music to www.dypl-me.com. Entries are then voted on by the public, with the top five playing live at a special event on 31st January.
The overall winner of the competition will then play at the Santana concert in Dubai on 15th February.
Serdar Urcar, general manager, Personal Systems Group, HP Middle East, commented: "Through the use of music, the ‘Design Your Personal Life' competition intends to inspire youth into greater cultural exchange and understanding, as it is one of the few things that transcend borders and cultures today.
"This youth music initiative uses technology to bring the youth of different countries with similar experiences and environments together and create a community, and provide a platform for rising talent to be recognized," he added.
The Design Your Personal Life competition will also benefit individuals with special needs, with one dollar donated for each vote, by HP to Manzil, a non-profit organization.
