MANILA, Philippines -- Sony Ericsson has opened a video competition that will bring the country’s first FIFA flag bearer to a FIFA World Cup™ match in July.
This is the first time that the country will participate in the global sports event, Sony Ericsson said.
The competition dares Filipino children aged 10-16 years old to creatively answer in a 30-60 second video “Why I deserve to win the Sony Ericsson Search for the FIFA World Cup™ flag bearer.”
The contestant may act, dance, illustrate, sing or perform your reasons on the video, or show off his or her best football moves to impress the judges. Contestants can submit as many entries as they want. Video entries are accepted at www.clickthecity/sonyericssonfifa from now until March 5, 2010
The winner, together with his parent or guardian, will fly to South Africa complete with hotel accommodations and pocket money. In an inspiring moment at the semi-finals, the winner will walk the pitch with other young flag bearers and watch a thrilling FIFA World Cup™ semi-finals match firsthand.
Registered voters on the site also get a chance to win the exclusive Sony Ericsson Team Pilipinas shirts. The winner will be announced on March 26, 2010.
