THU & Sony

Sony Talent League is not a competition, it’s an opportunity to get yourself and your innovative ideas out into the world.

THU & Sony joined forces to build a challenge that encourages and nurtures creativity, helping a new wave of talent to 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.
