To enter the competition, please visit www.prospect100.com and follow @prospectonehundred on Instagram. Applications are now open and will close on June 26 at 10pm Eastern Time.
Prospect 100 is a network of the world’s leading creative young talents that runs physical and online events across several industries, from tech to music. The company finds and connects the next generation of industry leaders via competitions and events, providing them with opportunities to elevate their passion. Judges for this competition include Kimberly Davis of disco group Chic, American singer Theophilus London, Israeli DJ Guy Gerber, American rapper Rico Nasty, Italian DJ Mathame, Antiguan-German singer-songwriter Au/Ra, American rapper Iann Dior, Brazilian pop star Giulia Be, Emma Banks of CAA (Kanye West, Lorde Katy Perry), former Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder manager Guy Holmes, Migos’ manager Danny Zook, Alex Hardee of Paradigm (Lewis Capaldi, Liam Gallagher), Preye Crooks, A&R from Columbia Records and founder of Strawberries and Creem, Derrick and Matt of Jamiroquai, Simon of Kaiser Chiefs, and American indie pop band Beach Bunny.

Prospect 100 was co-founded by three young entrepreneurs who spent the past few weeks bringing together a star-studded line up of judges and mentors to ensure that budding musicians can continue to grow during the pandemic.

Prospect 100 co-founder Adam Flanagan (18) serves as the company’s Head of Events. He got his start at age 14 as the founder of teen events company Future Summits, and he recently led the COVID Challenge, a global tech competition for students to tackle the COVID pandemic using innovative solutions.

“My first event was established out of frustration at a lack of opportunity for young people,” says Flanagan. “Many young people, particularly students whose exams have been canceled, have found themselves without much focus during this period. We are hosting this competition to provide an outlet for their passion.”

Co-founder Harry Beard(20) serves as Head of Operations. He founded OPEN Marketing at age 17 and is regarded as a leading expert on Generation Z, having given a TEDx Talk on the topic and been featured in Forbes. Harry works with a number of the world’s leading youth talents to ensure he is always abreast of the latest trends. As a result of his work, Harry was named to EY’s ‘Founders Under 30’.

“Generation Z pursues their passions in a different way to any previous generation,” Beard explains. “Platforms like YouTube mean that if we are passionate about a field we can pursue it at little cost and to any level. We can even start to derive an income from it.”

Co-founder Alexandre (Millinsky) Daillance (23) serves as Chief Brand Officer. At 17, he co-founded NASASEASONS, a fashion label serving Rihanna, Mick Jagger, Beyoncé, LeBron James, Zendaya, and Elton John that’s distributed in high-end stores around the world. At 18, Alexandre was the youngest designer ever featured in Vogue. He also joined forces with music icons such as Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Lil Wayne, and KISS to create limited capsule collections sold during shows and pop-ups. Last year, Alexandre was included in the prestigious Forbes ’30 Under 30′ list.

“I co-founded my fashion label when I was still in high school out of a passion for design,” says Daillance. “I couldn’t learn to design or how to run a company at school, so I mostly learned everything by myself after my homework. I wish I had the opportunity at the time to take part in a Prospect 100 competition and be part of that community of similarly passionate teenagers like myself.”

Prospect 100 runs physical and online events across a series of different industries, from tech to music. The company’s Head of People Darcy Dixon is a current student at the University of Oxford and is particularly excited about this event. “My favorite thing about the competition is that it allows people from all walks of life to access the music industry in a way that is unprecedented,” notes Dixon. “Whether it be a young person from a city in the United States or a town in Ethiopia, they can make the unconventional happen.”

With applications open to any genre of music, any language, and anyone 21 and under, this competition is a golden opportunity for young musicians to be heard by the industry’s leading minds, win prizes, and get on the fast track to artistic success.
