Huawei Device USA today announced the unveiling of the Huawei Museum, an online community that aims to evoke emotions, share new perspectives and inspire actions of its visitors through art and education. Online community resources will support digital creatives in harnessing the power of artistic self-expression and storytelling through their mobile devices.
“We want to empower a new era of mobile photographers, videographers, and storytellers through the Huawei Museum,” said Vincent Wen, vice president, Huawei Device USA. “In partnership with Leica, we developed the Mate 9, the most advanced smartphone camera. Now we hope to educate and inspire consumers to fully discover what is possible. We also want to provide a platform for artists to exhibit their work and share their stories.”
The Huawei Museum will launch with the Emergent Project, a competition that will call attention to the emergence of a new generation of creators and a new era of creativity.
To enter, Huawei Museum community members can post an original photo captured on any Huawei, Honor or Nexus 6P smartphone to the Facebook group page using #HuaweiMuseum. Each photo should include a title, description and the phone model used to capture the photo.
Every week, judges and community members will help select photos that will be featured across Huawei’s U.S. social media channels. A photo-of-the-month will be chosen to be displayed on Huawei’s Times Square billboard in New York City. Photos-of-the-month will also be featured in Leica store galleries in New York and Los Angeles.
