WINNER ANNOUNCED OF EPIC R100,000 HUAWEI “MAKE IT POSSIBLE” MUSIC DREAM COMPETITION

Chris Thomson

One incredibly happy Huawei fan’s music dream experience has just come true! Huawei and Huawei Culture Club are thrilled to announce that Chris Thomson from Cape Town is the winner of the “Make It Possible” competition.

This once-in-a-lifetime contest kicked off in March 2015 and included an all-expenses-paid trip for two to any music event anywhere in the world. To stand a chance of winning, entrants had to download and enter on the #HuaweiCultureClub app (available on Android or iOS), select their chosen music event and destination from anywhere in the world and – most importantly – get as many people to share and like their entry link across social media as possible. The person with the most shares and likes at the end of the two-month competition period is the winner.

And Chris is that person! With over 31,023 shares, likes, tweets and re-tweets, he beat out all other entries, and had almost 3,000 more likes and shares than the runner-up.

Says Chris: “Winning this competition was totally worth the few Facebook friends I lost from getting everyone to share and like my entry. Thank you HAUWEI and HAUWEI CULTURE CLUB!”

This is the biggest consumer competition Huawei has run in South Africa through its Huawei Culture Club platform, with the prize being valued at over R100,000. Huawei received over 4,600 entries with 96,000 shares, likes, tweets and re-tweets in total across all entries. To date, there have been over 15,000 downloads of the app. The total social media impressions or “opportunities to see” exceeded 32-million, a staggering achievement.

“Music forms a large part of Huawei’s strategy to engage with the South African consumer in a meaningful way,” says Yudi Rambaran from Huawei South Africa. “Through our Huawei Culture Club app and platform, we are giving consumers access to incredible music experiences they can’t get anywhere else. The ‘Make It Possible’ competition is a perfect example of this,” adds Yudi.

Chris and his travel companion will receive:

Two economy class return tickets from any main departure point in South Africa to the final destination city of choice;
Two double/twin rooms at a four-star hotel in the destination city of choice, for five nights;
A R10,000 spending allowance;
Two general access passes to the music event of choice;
Airport-hotel transfers.

Where will Chris be going? He chose to head to Croatia Rocks!

But that’s not all! To reward the top three entries, including the winner, each will receive a brand new Huawei Mate 7 phablet – the 6-inch flagship device from Huawei with its unique fingerprint security and an extended battery capacity.

#HuaweiCultureClub – Make It Possible

#HuaweiCultureClub presents the ELECTRONIC DOME at Rocking the Daisies and announces first artist!

Huawei Culture Club

In its initial act as sponsor of Rocking the Daisies’ ELECTRONIC DOME, Huawei Culture Club has announced massively popular SA rap duo PHFAT as the first electronic act to perform at the festival this October.

The ELECTRONIC DOME houses the second-largest stage at Rocking The Daisies and hosts some of the festival’s biggest local and international artists.

This year Huawei South Africa (a leading smartphone supplier) – through its Huawei Culture Club app platform – will amplify the ELECTRONIC DOME from beginning to end with loads of incredible features including a chill lounge, charging stations, free Wi-Fi and access to cutting-edge music and technology.

Its sponsorship of the ELECTRONIC DOME forms a large part of Huawei’s strategy to engage with the SA consumer in a meaningful way through music.

In just a few short months Huawei Culture Club has created a strong association with electronic music, having secured partnerships and sponsorships with many large-scale, high-profile music events around the country such as Ultra, Above & Beyond SA Tour, the Robin Schulz Sound of Light Tour – and now Rocking the Daisies.
