MSI Prestige Photography Competition from Shoreditch UK

 Shoreditch, a little over a decade ago was a dangerous and violent part of east London, but today its one of the trendiest spots and home to many startups and creatives alike. Techspace provided MSI with a workspace for people to flex their creativity in their latest competition.

MSI held their first ever photography competition last weekend in the Techspace in Shoreditch. The room was kitted out with strobe lights, various props, professional models, cameras, laptops and some very tasty looking cupcakes. Amateur and professional photographers alike were invited to attend to shoot the best picture.

Instead of clocking the CPU/GPU to the limit for maximum in-game framerates, the concept here is to create a lightweight, long-battery-life design tool that will enable creative people to be more productive. Think ‘Apple with a Windows OS’.

Inside TechSpace, there were 2 shooting areas (plain white background and a living room environment), plenty of lights, windows, cupcakes and coffee. The centrepiece for the creative shoot was the PS63, which comes with this baseline specification:-

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-8565U
  • GPU: Intel UHD Graphics 620
  • Display: 15.6”, Full HD (1920 x 1080), IPS
  • Storage: 512GB SSD
  • RAM: 16GB DDR4
  • Weight: 1.65 kg (3.6 lbs)

To really display the power of the laptops they had the entrants shoot images of the models in the various settings and then edit them then and there on the P-series laptops. It was incredible to see what people were able to create on the day, and the laptops certainly seemed up for the challenge.

MSI are also holding a Global challenge for the rest of this month, you can find the details on the MSI website HERE

Good luck to you all!

Winners will be announced Friday the 15th February at 3pm.










KitGuru Says: For the dozen or so young creatives that came along, it was a really interesting event. It’s unusual to be able to experience the entire creative workflow – from set up to capture to final output – using the new kit and with experts on hand. Really hope this becomes a regular slot in the calendar.
