Nothing holds you back more than thinking you don’t have what it takes.
As creators, we spend so much time wondering if we’re good or qualified enough, and comparing and doubting ourselves, that we end up missing out on opportunities that could change our lives.
Sony Talent League was built to give you access to the tools you need to fulfill your creative potential, overcoming these blocks and empowering your talent.
Meet the mentors
Sony Talent League by THU is all about sharing knowledge, advice, and helping you grow. Check out the resources page for info and insights on a variety of different topics to help guide you on that journey.
Our approach to creative empowerment or, “The Prizes”, as other challenges would call it.
Sony Talent League is not a competition. It’s an opportunity to put yourself and your ideas out there. Here’s our approach to creative empowerment.
Three finalist projects get...
Ten weeks of remote mentorships
You will have the chance to learn from some of the most brilliant minds in the creative industry, who will help you develop your idea, encouraging and guiding you through the process.
Up to 10.000€ in funding (per submission)
The goal is to help finalists support living expenses and stay committed and focused on developing their projects.
The support of the THU community
Our Tribe includes creators from all backgrounds and parts of the world who will accompany your creative process, offer insights, and see your idea come to life.
In addition, the winner also gets…
Full-ride to the next THU event
Including travel, accommodation, ticket, and meals. The winner will also have the chance to present and promote the project during the event.
Let's get started...
You are eligible if:
You're a creator aged between 18 and 35 years old
Your idea relates to digital art and mixes more than one creative field, such as animation, music, film, games, VR, digital photography, mixed media, and so on.
About your submission:
You can apply individually or as part of a group (maximum of four members).
Submit as many ideas as you’d like, as long as they’re new or in the pitching phase. Keep in mind that only one of your ideas can be selected.
When you submit, please know that the rights to the ideas will always be yours. If you are selected, you will also remain in total control of the project and maintain your creative freedom.

THU & Sony
A common purpose
THU & Sony joined forces to build a challenge that encourages and nurtures creativity, helping a new wave of talent realize their potential by going beyond their self-limiting beliefs.
We share a common purpose of supporting creators and believe that creativity has the power to move the world forward. That’s why Talent League is more than just a challenge - it’s a meaningful initiative to find, educate, and empower talent.
