News: 50N 50 – A Community Collaboration Project to showcase Singapore’s creative talents

A joint initiative by CreativesAtWork, JellyFarm Studios and HISTORY (StarHub TV Ch 401), 50N 50 is a creative crowdsourcing project launched to commemorate Singapore’s 50th year of independence.

A first of its kind, the multi-platform project aims to invoke and strengthen the identity of Singaporeans by tracing Singapore’s evolution from a post-war colony 50 years ago to a thriving first-world nation today, as well as an opportunity for local creative talents to demonstrate their works and bring the international spotlight to Singapore.

50N 50 will feature creative works revolving around 10 different themes, ranging from HDB to transport to education to economy to people and more.

Creative talents in Singapore are invited to send in their creative submissions, in the form of music, videos, dance, animation, illustration, photos, and poetry, among others to http://50on50.com.sg. 50 selected works will be curated and unveiled as a series of 10 webisodes on HISTORY and 50N 50’s platforms over a period of 10 weeks, starting from 8 August 2015.

HISTORY is excited to be the Official TV Partner for this innovative project. This collaboration to commemorate the nation’s 50th birthday together with HISTORY’s localized programming further exemplifies our commitment to constantly create and curate interesting local content for our Asian viewers,” said Prem Kamath, Deputy Managing Director, A+E Networks Asia.

If you want to show the world what Singapore truly is, the growth and changes we face in a creative manner, do send in your submissions!
