SEGA of America and SEGA Europe, today announced that they have launched a video contest to celebrate Sonic the Hedgehogâ€™s 19th anniversary. Two lucky grand prize winners (one from America, one from the UK) will each receive a trip for two to Tokyo to visit SEGA Japan and meet the Sonic development team.
â€śIn honor of the nineteenth anniversary of our favorite hedgehog, we wanted to find a special way to thank Sonicâ€™s fans throughout the years,â€ť said Haruki Satomi, Executive Vice President of SEGA of America. â€śWe think this contest is a great way to give fans a chance to express their creativity, enthusiasm and support for Sonic.â€ť
Over the course of the next two weeks contestants can upload their videos showing their appreciation and love for Sonic the Hedgehog, to YouTube and then submit them for judging on the official Sonic 4 Contest Page. Videos will be judged on creativity, entertainment and effort, then the ten best will be chosen by SEGA and showcased on the official Sonic the Hedgehog 4 website. Sonic fans and the entire SEGA community will then choose their favorite to win either the grand prize trip to Tokyo, or a prize of a 32 GB iPod Touch.
