After the huge success of the previous editions, the talent that combines music, streetwear and art, conceived by AW LAB, presented in collaboration with Fandango Club Creators and powered by PLUG-Mi, is renewed by raising the bar even higher.

IS ME 2021 will be broadcasted on MTV and streamed on NOW and will feature two special guest judges from the contemporary Italian music scene: Milanese rapper Ernia and Italian-Argentine DJ and producer Shablo.

But that’s not all! This year’s winner will receive a never-before-seen prize: the chance to travel to Dubai to perform on the main stage of SOLE DXB, one of the most eagerly awaited festivals of the year.

“We couldn’t be more excited about the creation of this new edition of AW LAB IS ME – Music Edition. We’re now in our fourth edition, but the basic idea hasn’t changed: what we want to do is amplify youth culture, give young talents a voice, a stage on which to perform and a unique opportunity to express themselves and compare notes with professionals in the sector. With MTV and SOLE DXB, we believe that the project has everything it takes to establish itself once again as a point of reference in the industry”, said Antonio Marrari, Head of Marketing at AW LAB. 

Now for the practical information. Until 31 August, anyone who thinks he or she has what it takes to become the next IS ME winner can send a video of a performance on a base of their choice or on the beat that Shablo has created for the occasion and which can be downloaded HERE.

The best 8 will be selected, divided into two teams captained by Ernia and Shablo and will be the protagonists of 4 episodes that will tell their experience from the live battle to the grand final. 

“IS ME powered by PLUG-Mi is a talent show aimed at all young people with an unbridled passion for music, live performances and a keen eye for style. The hybrid nature of the project, which originates from social networks and arrives on MTV, demonstrates once again how Fandango Club Creators is capable of proposing and creating formats with an international appeal, aimed above all at Millennials and Gen Z. IS ME is the perfect place for those who are aware of their talent and were just waiting for the right moment to show it”. –Domenico Romano, CEO of Fandango Club Creators

The setting for the event will be the nhow in via Tortona 35 in Milan, an exceptional location that, thanks to its spaces, designed by Italian architect and designer Matteo Thun, will link the world of music and art to Milanese design and lifestyle. And since the eye also needs its part, the event’s exceptional partners will be four iconic streetwear brands that will give character and style to all the protagonists: Converse, Diadora, New Era and Puma.

What are you waiting for? Participate now and become the winner of IS ME – Music Edition 2021!

Female portraits by Marat Safin

Female portraits by Marat Safin

Giulia Guido · 3 days ago · Photography

Women are the protagonists of the shots by Russian self-taught photographer Marat Safin. Lonely women, women in the house, in the kitchen or lying on the bed, women immersed in nature, free among the high grass, women looking in the car or immortalized in spontaneous poses. 

Marat’s female portraits convey a sense of calm, intimacy. 

The warm light that we find in all her shots immediately gives the family atmosphere, giving us an air of home, of familiarity. 

In our gallery you can find a selection of her shots, to find out more go to the Marat Safin’s Instagram profile

The world’s best nature photography of 2021

The world’s best nature photography of 2021

Tommaso Berra · 3 days ago · Photography

After the ranking of the best astronomical and microscope photographs of 2021, these days the best wildlife photos of the last year have also been awarded. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year is a competition organized by the Natural History Museum in London, now in its 57th edition.
There are many aspects that make extraordinary the 100 photos in competition, taken by professional photographers or amateurs and selected from 50 thousand proposals. On the one hand, the technique used and the patience in waiting to take the perfect shot, unrepeatable in many cases. On the other hand, the unusual point of view, which brings viewers closer to unusual natural events or animals that are difficult to approach, such as the shot of the spider as big as a human hand or the “selfie” taken by a grizzly bear in front of the carcass of a deer in the United States.

The Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest is divided into 19 categories, from which the two winners have been announced. Laurent Ballesta, who specializes in aquatic photography, won the Adult Grand Title Winner with an image capturing some camouflaged groupers in French Polynesia emerging from a cloud of eggs and sperm. It took the French photographer five years of night diving to capture this moment, which occurs only during the July full moon period.
The other winner of the wildlife photo contest was Vidyun R. Hebbar, just ten years old, who was awarded the Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year for his image of a spider wrapped in its web, taken in Bangalore, India.

Erotic and sexy photography by Joshua Rhodes

Erotic and sexy photography by Joshua Rhodes

Buddy · 3 days ago · Photography

Joshua Rhodes is a Californian photographer present on Instagram with the accounts @fuzzyaxolotl and @fuzzyanalog.

His images are charged with solar eroticism: pin-up style models, portrayed with irony and sensuality, with a vintage style that seems to echo the editorial taste of Playboy and a certain 70s erotic cinema.

The statuesque bodies of blonde models shine in the sun on perfect beaches, emerge from the water of the ocean or crystalline pools.

Natural shots, delicate and glossy lights.

Check out a selection of his shots here, follow him on Instagram and on his personal website.
