The show is in the phase of being established in the UK and we welcome sponsors for specific areas of the promotion, eg cost for advertising in the targeted printed media.



The distinctive sound of Libera has travelled the world in the last few years. The group's albums have topped both mainstream and classical charts in many countries and their recordings hold their place in top-tens alongside major artists like Bocelli. The boys who make up the vocal band Libera have been described as "normal" and "ordinary". However, as their recordings and performances demonstrate, the music they produce is truly extraordinary. With shimmering, mystical chords and ecstatic harmonies, they are unlike any other group you have ever heard. These are truly sounds to lift the soul. The singers of Libera, who are aged seven to sixteen, attend many different local schools in south London and come from a variety of backgrounds. Although they are boys and they sing, they do not think of themselves as choirboys, but rather as an alternative kind of boy band. While the unique sound of Libera may be impossible to pigeonhole, its universal appeal has endeared the group to fans all over the world, particularly in the US, the UK, the Philippines, South Korea and Japan, where their CDs top the mainstream and classical charts and where they sell out large capacity concert halls - ideal situations for sponsorship exposure. "We would love to be able to tour more, and to bring our unique music to even more people; however we are restricted by our financial resources. We are enormously grateful for all the time volunteered by parents and others, to say nothing of the boys' time. However, we have to pay the bills - and taking the boys on tour is expensive. We are keen that ticket prices should remain relatively inexpensive, but it costs on average £250k pa to train the boys and maintain the current level of touring. Income from ticket sales is generally insufficient to cover touring costs with twenty-five boys and ten support staff, so we rely on kind gifts from generous supporters. Libera is a not-for-profit, UK registered charity. If you have enjoyed our music and would like to consider making a donation, either as a one-off gift or on a regular monthly basis, we would be eternally grateful. Contributions can be made online by visiting this donations link on our website - - or by contacting us. The generosity of our supporters is what makes it possible for us to continue to create and share the unique sound of Libera worldwide, whilst giving the boys an unparalleled musical education and fantastic opportunities to perform".

Terracotta Far East Film Festival presents the latest films from across the Asian continent. An annual festival held each May in central London, the aim of the event is to widen the audience for Far Eastern film in the UK and to further promote this genre to existing film fans and the new generation of film students. It's an important event for strong films that deserve to be seen, though, due to competition for screen space, wouldn't get general distribution in the UK. The festival is open to the public and attendees travel to London, not only from many parts of the UK but also from continental Europe and North America, to enjoy the atmosphere of a four day festival that shows the latest (sometimes hard-to-find) films from Asia and to meet with actors and directors from the Far East. The films are shown at the cult, legendary Prince Charles Cinema ( on the doorstep of London's famous Chinatown. Many restaurants and bars in the area offer discounts to festival-goers during this period, so there is a local community involvement aspect to the festival. Interspersed in the film programme are culturally-related events and talks from actors and directors and those involved in the film-making process. Notably, the festival awarded Jackie Chan a Peace Award to highlight his off-screen work in charities and as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. Contact: Joey Leung, Festival Founder.

The organisers of Top Model of Colour are looking for companies that wish to sponsor/support this year's event by providing either cash sponsorship, prizes or services for the competition. Last year's show was by far the biggest and best competition to date, with over 3,500 candidates, heats around the country and a gala finale at Chelsea Football Club's Stamford Bridge stadium in London. This year is the fourth year of the competition and is expected to be the biggest yet. The show is ongoing for nine months and consists of applications, live regional heats in July/August and the grand finale in November. So a sponsor receives continuous publicity from all client groups, models, family members and businesses. As ever the show has attracted unprecedented press coverage from the likes of the Evening Standard, Metro, the BBC and many more (as can be seen by searching the web for 'mahogany models' or visiting to get a feel for how big the show is). The competition is open to male and female models of African, Caribbean, Asian, Oriental, Hispanic and bi- and multi-racial ethnicity. Sponsors have the option of either sponsoring with cash and receiving higher prominence on the media information distributed or sponsoring prizes in kind and being a secondary or associate sponsor/supporter. Detailed current opportunities are listed below. This is the premium talent contest for models of ethnic minority descent and fills an important gap in the talent search market for people of colour. Many of the finest models working in the country today got their first break through the competition and everyone who has taken part confirms that the experience was really useful in getting day-to-day modelling jobs. "We welcome any other ideas or suggestions that you may have and we can tailor a package specifically for you and we look forward to hearing from you. To discuss the sponsorship packages and/or to receive a sponsorship pack or to become a sponsor of Top Model of Colour 2009, please contact us". Contact: Shola Oyebade.
