“We are PlayStation” Photography Competition Announced; Win Cash or Other Great Prizes

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe announced that it will host ‘We are PlayStation’ photography competition that launches on 29 January 2009 in Europe. The team’s jubilation at getting a Buzz! question right; the laughter of a room full of SingStar fans; the entertaining journeys playing your PSP! They’re all classic PlayStation moments that you’ve seen or experienced hundreds of times - but can you capture them in a photo? If you can, your name could be in the hat to win some great prizes. There’s also the possibility of a serious cash prize, the possibility of the images being used in future PlayStation campaigns as well as a new Sony D-SLR a350 digital camera and lens. Get snapping and upload your photos by the 16 March 2009 for a chance to win.

Survive the community vote and face the judging panel at 

The rules are simple - capture the perfect image of you, your friends or your family enjoying a PlayStation moment with your PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3TM), PlayStation®2 or PSPTM (PlayStation®Portable) and upload it to which goes live on 28 January. There are different categories your photos could enter: Caught in the Moment, Unexpected Places, PlayStation Parties, True Love and Endless Play. A panel of guest judges will assess top user-rated snaps on their merits and work out which photographer deserves the top prize of 1000 euros and a Sony D-SLR a350 camera. Ten runners up will receive cash prizes of 100 euros each, while the next best 100 entries will get their hands on a top PlayStation game or vouchers for the PlayStation®Store. All entries have the chance of being used in a future PlayStation marketing campaign.

Of course, PlayStation is all about its community - and that’s why we’re asking you to judge the first round of the competition. PlayStation fans can visit the website and decide which shots will be put before the judges by rating each photo with a score from one to five. Also, every time you enter the site, you can give your favourite image a secret ‘Super Vote’ which will be used to determine the finalists in case several entries generate the same overall rating. The images with the highest average score and, in the event of a tie, with the highest number of ‘Super Votes’ will go before the judging panel - so it pays to get everyone you know onto the site and voting.

With so many great moments for so many different PlayStation communities, this is the chance not only to show off your natural eye for a photograph, but also to show the world just how much fun you have with your friends - and a PS3, PlayStation 2 or PSP. Visit for competition terms and conditions and get snapping!
