For those of you wanting to become famous… Canon's “Rebel With A Cause” is maybe your chance?
Canon is looking for people who have a great story and are ‘rebels' – to go along with the Rebel line of cameras. You don't have to own one, but you can possibly win a T6i along with a bunch of gear and have a short filmed about you.
Seems pretty easy to enter and who knows, you might become famous.
Launching the search, they've created two stories featuring Swizz Beatz and Nik Wallenda – and they've provided some behind-the-scenes as well.
I love both of these stories… they're heartwarming and motivating. It is great to see Canon recognizing the underdogs and doing something about it. I've tried to do some of that in the planet5D past and plan to continue it as well. What's your story?
Canon: Rebel With A Cause – Swizz Beatz (Full Story)
To celebrate 25 years of the Canon EOS Rebel DSLR Camera, we’ve embarked on a journey to follow modern day rebels who challenge convention in their own unique way. Our next Rebel With A Cause is GRAMMY® Award winning producer and artist, Swizz Beatz who’s recently become a major force in the art world. However, instead of focusing on his own art, he’s helping unknown artists get the recognition they deserve.
