LOS ANGELES (November 1, 2021) – Today, Lenovo’s Yoga® brand and Intel® Evo™ platform announced the return of their award-winning music creative program, For All Creators. This year, the brand is expanding its creative scope to include art, architecture, and design to help create an unforgettable experience in partnership with multi-platinum Universal Music Group Singer/Songwriter/Actor Troye Sivan and Architectural Digest. The program celebrates the power of technology to empower creativity and self-expression by harnessing fans’ and creators’ imagination and virtually partnering them with elite visionaries like Troye and a notable designer. Select creators will work alongside them to create a bespoke art installation inspired by Lenovo’s top-of-the-line, 2-in-1 Yoga laptop for an exclusive performance to celebrate Art Basel Miami Beach, in partnership with Architectural Digest.
“I’m thrilled to be partnering with Lenovo and Intel Evo on For All Creators. I can’t wait to see the originality and creativity from the contest winners and go on this artistic journey with them. It will be incredible to see their authentic designs come to life and have the opportunity to showcase their work alongside one of my all-time favorite designers for my performance in celebration of Art Basel,” said Troye Sivan.
Lenovo, Intel® Evo™ and Troye Sivan have launched the program across social channels by calling all creators in North America to submit a sketch, mood board or collage that bring alive various creative expressions/themes as outlined on a custom microsite created for the program – Visit https://lenovoyogacreatorscontest.com/ for full Official Rules and Entry Guidelines.
“At Lenovo, our mission is to develop technology that empowers and inspires people. The For All Creators program provides creatives the opportunity to showcase their talents and integrate technology, music, art and culture through this performance by Troye Sivan featuring a stunning Lenovo Yoga art installation,” said Gerald Youngblood, Chief Marketing Officer of Lenovo North America.
The competition winners will be selected by a jury that includes Troye Sivan and will be notified no later than November 15th, 2021. All will have the opportunity to video chat directly with Troye Sivan and the notable designer to discuss their submission, the creative expressions/themes and conceptualize the art installation together.
The winning creators will also be gifted a Lenovo Yoga laptop, have integration into the art installation, receive a Best Buy Creator pack and more!
The art installation will be the centerpiece of Troye’s performance in celebration of Art Basel, which will be teased live on TikTok. The power and creative functionality of the Lenovo Yoga will be used to conceptualize, design, and bring it to life both on-screen and at the venue.
“It’s been an absolute pleasure teaming up with Lenovo and Intel to bring the For All Creators program to life and see it continue on this year with Troye Sivan,” said Richard Yaffa, Global Head of Universal Music Group for Brands, “We are always looking for creative ways to involve UMG artists with forward thinking brands and in this particular case witnessing how music, design and technology can ignite creativity and inspiration.”
Like the art installation and performance, the Yoga 9i is crafted for a premium entertainment experience, featuring stunning visuals enabled by Dolby Vision for ultra-vivid picture quality and spectacular sound powered by Dolby Atmos® Speaker System. And with up to 15+ hours of battery life1, the Yoga 9i enables creators, and fans, to work from anywhere without sacrificing comfort, performance, or high resolution.
The Lenovo Yoga brand is available exclusively at Best Buy in the United States and at select retailers in Canada as well as on lenovo.com.
