November 24, 2008

Sony Ericsson is offering the ultimate prize for those that love photography, love their mobiles and would also love a taste of red carpet glamour!
The online Flickr competition is offering one winner the chance to become an official Sony Ericsson photographer, meaning a budding snapper will get the chance to get behind the scenes at some of 2009’s most exciting events – from film premieres to music awards, and snap away on the hottest Sony Ericsson cameraphone of the moment, the C905 Cyber-shot phone with its 8-megapixel camera and Xenon flash.
To be in with a chance of winning, entrants need to start sharing their hottest pictures on Flickr.
Entrants will need to sign up to get a Flickr account and join the ‘Sony Ericsson C905 Photographic Competition’ group to get started. The individuals who create the five pictures with the most ‘Favs’ will go through to the final round where they will be provided with a C905 cameraphone which they get to keep. They will then be challenged to a take a particular picture every day for a week. Again the individual who gets the most combined ‘Favs’ for their series of seven pictures wins the ‘red carpet’ prize.

  1. If you don’t already have one, sign up for a free Flickr account or login using your existing Yahoo account.
  2. Join the ‘Sony Ericsson C905 Photographic Competition’ Flickr group.
