Motorola and Boost Mobile Launch Music Biz 101 Contest

Music Biz 101 ContestInteresting.  25 lucky 18-26 year old college student music industry wannabees will win all expense paid trips to New York City to attend the Music Biz 101 Symposium on April 19th.  As well as a Motorola Boost Mobile i875 handset.  Not too shabby.

An incredible roster of technology leaders, label managers, and artists line the speaker roster...I kind of wish I could attend myself.  (Come on, Moto, I'm right here in NYC, there would be no need for hotel or transportation arrangements..!)  Check out this sampling from the roster:

  • Jason Hirschhorn (CDO, MTV Networks)
  • Timbaland (big-time hit producer)
  • Mimi Valdes (Editor-In-Chief, Vibe Magazine)
  • Mona Scott (President, Violater Management)
  • Zeeshan Zaidi (VP, Digital Business Operations Group, BMG US)
  • Scott Richman (VP & GM, AOL City Guide, AOL Music)
  • Lee Abrams (CPO & SVP, XM Radio)
  • Moni Wolf (CDO, Motorola iDen products)

I'm not sure what's driving the event, but it probably has to do with establishing a little more buzz and recognition for Motorola's and Boost's respective products and services.  Peter Aloumanis, general manager, U.S. Markets Division, Motorola’s iDEN® Mobile Devices, gave the philonthropic explanation, "Motorola not only has a long standing commitment to education and technology, but provides key experiences that tear down the barriers between music producers and music consumers."

Whatever the case, the event looks quite cool.  And you get a free phone.

If you fit the bill, hey, apply.  Warning:  you'll have to write a 500-word essay.  Ha!
