HP Invites People to Express Themselves on YouTube
Hewlett Packard today announced the HP You on You project, a contest on YouTube (News – Alert) that invites entrants from around the world to create and share videos that express who they are – without showing their faces.
The contest uses new video creation tools on YouTube, including improved video remixing and webcam video tools, to allow people of all skill levels to submit videos that run the gamut from comedies to mini-biographies and documentaries, and showcase their individual passions, causes and creative gift
The contest offers the opportunity for contestants to win more than $300,000 in cash and prizes from HP Running through Aug. 30, each of the 100 semifinalists selected by YouTube will receive an HP Artist Edition notebook PC, and the 20 finalists selected by YouTube viewers also will each receive $2,500.
The Artist Edition notebook features a stunning design inspired by the sea and sky in Okinawa, Japan, which earned 27-year-old Hisako Sakihama first place in the 2008 HP MTV “Engine Room” Notebook Design Contest.
The Artist Edition notebook brings together a rich set of options, including a Blu-ray optical drive(2) and AMD (News – Alert) Turion™ processors(3) as well as powerful graphics from ATI. Advanced yet intuitive software applications – including Corel® VideoStudio X2, Corel Painter Sketch Pad, Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 and Magix Music Maker 14 – allow users to explore new levels of creativity and fun with pictures, music and video.
