Parents with sports-minded kids aged 10-16 years old: here’s one worthwhile thing to do this summer. Create and upload a video answering, “Why I deserve to win the Sony Ericsson Search for the FIFA World Cup™ flag bearer.” The winner will get to proudly carry a FIFA flag live on the pitch in South Africa and get to travel with his/her parent or guardian to the said country, complete with plane fare, pocket money and hotel accommodations.
To qualify, contestants must creatively answer the question in a 30-60 second video through a song, dance or any kind of performance. Interested candidates can submit as many entries as they want. Five finalists will each win the Sony Ericsson Kita, the gesture gaming phone wonder with 5-megapixel camera, photo geo-tagging, Net access, high quality media player and stereo speakers.
Five qualifying videos will be voted upon for the Philippines to decide who gets to be the first FIFA flag bearer. He or she will then walk the pitch with other young flag bearers and watch a thrilling FIFA World Cup™ semi-finals match firsthand.
“This will be the first time for the Philippines to participate in a FIFA World Cup™ event so we are inviting Filipino children to try out and give it their best,” said Dennis Manzano, Sony Ericsson General Manager.
