Take Action, Make Art with HP and MTV

Youths in Asia Pacific are “taking action and making art” for the HP and MTV global notebook PC graphics-design competition. 25 percent of 3,200 entries have been submitted from Asia with youths in Pakistan and Malaysia submitting one of the highest number of entries from around the world. Since its inception on 12 September 2007, the online website www.mtv-tama.com has generated a remarkable 1.7million visits of which 15 percent of the pageviews are unique to Asia Pacific. Of the 78,000 unique visits to the WAP site, a significant 50 percent come from Asia Pacific.

The global competition challenges youths to develop designs that communicate a positive thought, a belief, a message that they want to broadcast to the world to show us what is personal to them. The winning submission will be used in the design of a special artist edition HP Pavilion notebook PC using the company’s innovative HP Imprint finish.

“The designs from Asia Pacific resonate with creative passion and personal ideas, reflecting the strength of thought behind the designs, showing that imagination has no limit,” said Danny Lee, Country General Manager, Personal Systems Group, Hewlett-Packard (M) Sdn Bhd. “HP is the first PC company to recognize that the PC is the emotional hard drive of people’s lives. The ‘Take Action: Make Art’ competition taps into this emotional connect to create avenues of expression, delivering on HP’s personal promise. It has certainly been inspiring to see such expressive creativity in Asia.”
