HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Dec. 20, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (Nasdaq: MGIC), a leading provider of cloud and on-premise application platform and business integration solutions, announced today that its upcoming uniPaaS Jet edition was featured in its exclusive Marquee sponsorship of the RAWartists.org viral video competition featuring the work of emerging artists across the United States.
"RAWartists.org is all about featuring the work of a mostly younger generation of emerging artists," says Heidi Luerra, founder of RAWartists.org. "We think uniPaaS Jet is an ideal sponsor because of its similar goals of bringing the vision of an accelerated development process to a new generation of software developers. Our artists will be invited to showcase their amazing talents in the uniPaaS Jet viral video competition, thereby focusing the attention of a powerful social media system on both emerging artists and uniPaaS Jet."
The competition rules were announced at the RAWards 2010 ceremony held December 17th at the Music Box in Hollywood, California where the RAWartists.org community gathered to honor its emerging artists. Videos selected for the final competition will be released across powerful social media networks and judged based on total views received before the competition deadline.
"Even prior to the official release of uniPaaS Jet, the viral engine propelling it forward is taking off," said Regev Yativ, CEO of Magic Software Enterprises Americas. "We are happy to work with these amazing people. We consider uniPaaS to be the tool we provide to software developers so they can create their artwork, their own masterpiece. As these videos featuring the work of superb artists in a variety of creative endeavors are seen, we will take great satisfaction in promoting uniPaaS Jet as the sponsor of such a broad range of creativity."
