Is your child the next web sensation?

MANILA, Philippines – A leading mobile phone manufacturer has launched a video contest for children who has got what it takes to be the country’s next web sensation.

With Sony Ericsson’s Wonder Kidz, children can show off their talents in singing, dancing, playing sports, making art, or just being funny or fascinating.

Parents can capture their children’s amazing act on camera and upload the 30- to 60-second videos on the new Sony Ericsson Philippines Facebook page.

Each entry must be labeled with Vivaz Wonder Kidz and a video title. Contestants must provide a brief description of the video, along with the contestant’s full name, e-mail and contact numbers.

Contestants are encouraged to promote their videos through their various social networks to become the “most liked.”

The top 10 “most liked” entries will qualify as finalists for judging by a celebrity panel of judges.

The winning entry will receive the new Sony Ericsson Vivaz with HD video and a cash prize worth P50,000.

Entries will be accepted until August 31, 2010.

HD handsets

Vivaz and Vivaz Pro handsets offer touch video capture in HD quality. Vivaz comes with an 8.1-megapixel camera with continuous auto focus for video, 4x digital zoom, touch capture, video light, geo tagging and image stabilizer.

Meantime, Vivaz pro, with its full slide-out QWERTY keyboard, also features HD quality image and video capture through its 5.1-megapixel camera.

Both handsets offer WiFi capability, Facebook and Twitter applications, FM radio, 3D games and impressive music and media players.

Past videos are also allowed as long as the child is still 7 years of age at the time of the contest.

FIFA Flag Bearer

Wonder Kidz comes on the heels of the successful Sony Ericsson Search for the FIFA Flag Bearer, a video contest that brought the Philippines’ first flag bearer to the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa.

Twelve-year-old Megan Lo of Pangasinan carried the FIFA flag with children from across Asia in the England vs. Algeria match.
