Pose For Prizes in Sony’s Profile Hero Photo Contest

By | November 25th, 2010

If you’ve seen Sony’s rather slick NEX-5 camera and felt like you could happily have one yourself, then the chance to win one could cost you merely a few minutes. Sony’s new Profile Hero photo competition can be entered in just 3 quick steps.

  1. Pick one of 5 unique categories which would best suit a profile picture that you want to submit.
  2. Upload the image through the Profile Hero Facebook application page, which is quick and easy.
  3. Start calling on your friendship group to ‘like’ your submission, because the higher the number of likes, the better chance you have of winning.


Each of the 5 categories will have a weekly winner who will claim a brand-new NEX-5 as their own. The competition will run for 4 weeks, meaning that there are 20 cameras up for grabs. To see which category might suit your style of profile portrayal best, here’s the rundown on the big 5.

Sports Star: From shooting hoops to football fanatics, this category allows you to bring out your energetic side.
Portrait Poser: For those who aren’t shy and like to give the camera all they’ve got. From the smiley and openly charming to the deeply brooding and complex, posers of all types can make their mark here.

Family Funster: Keeping it in the family is the name of the game here. Whether funny, heart-warming or simply cute, those Thanksgiving get-togethers can help you bring you closer together, and also closer to that NEX-5.

World Traveler: For the cosmopolitan jet-setter who has snapped their way across the globe. New and exotic places with the perfect backdrop to your profile picture are the key to this category.

Night Owl: Wild Christmas parties, stargazing shots and all manner of nocturnal adventures are suited to the Night Owl section.
