Samsung’s Future Gen Lab partners with Hypebeast Africa to bring you: Culture ScoutsShare open/close
If you were as excited as we were to hear about the arrival of media publication giant: Hypebeast in Africa, then you will be even more elated to hear about the partnership made in heaven where cultural curation and relevance meets technological superiority.
Culture Scouts presented by Hypebeast Africa in partnership with Samsung is a new exciting and ground-breaking opportunity for young African creatives to give us a street-level window into Hypebeast culture in Africa using the technologically innovative Samsung Galaxy devices.
This campaign harnesses Samsung’s mission to connect cutting-edge creativity with a global audience and gives winners the chance to craft original content that debuts exclusively on Hypebeast Africa, propelling impactful storytelling in their local communities. The nationwide call-out for South Africa’s creatives to enter went out on the Hypebeast Africa Instagram page garnering over 1000 entries: FGL callout video
