Make a Statement in Times Square Contest

by Team Sony 08/16/2010

What dream would you like to turn into reality?

“I will perform an original song I composed to the world.”
“I will become a professional gamer.”
“I will get my dream job video blogging about technology.”
“I will turn my screenplay into a film.”
“Millions of people will see my name in lights!”

What do these quotes have in common? Yes they are all under 140 characters, but they also have another common thread: Make.Believe.

From time to time you’ve heard us here at Sony use this phrase (it’s pronounced – make dot believe), which is a simple message based on the belief that dreams can be made into reality. As the manufacturer of the technology and tools that can make many of these dreams real, we’re proud to introduce Sony’s “Make A Statement in Times Square contest.” It’s your chance to share your personal dreams with us and with millions of people via the Times Square Billboard in New York City.

So, what would you like to see become a reality? Follow and tweet your answers to @Sony starting with the hashtag #sonyibelieve and your dream could be featured on the billboard to the world. Winners will also get a Sony bloggie camera, which for a video blogger like me is the kind of tool that has made many dreams come true.

Here’s how it works:
1. Using your Twitter account, follow @Sony.

2. Send @Sony your statement and include #sonyibelieve.

3. You can submit unlimited entries now through Aug. 20, 2010 at 11:59 a.m. EST.

4. Five winners will receive Bloggie HD cameras and have their #sonyibelieve tweets put on the Times Square Billboard in NYC.

5. For more info, visit

Here’s some footage taken of the billboard where the Make.Believe messages will be featured. So, take a minute and let yourself dream of things that might seem impossible, but are actually just a tweet away from becoming a reality.

    I wish Sony would move faster in the market place and make cool stuff again.
    XPERIA could be a GREAT all-in-one device except Sony holds it back.
    Here is an idea make an XPERIA to run on LTE make it a PlayStation Phone running Android with dual analog and hardware buttons and QWERTY keyboard slap on some cybershot and walkman goodness and make it available on all carriers. Include some of that media content (music, tv shows/movies) Sony owns preloaded on the phone to show off it’s skills.
    I wish Sony the tech leader/innovator would come back …

    Spent 800.00 on Sony Bravia 32″ flat screen TV. It lasted less than 1.5 years. Interpretation of what happened to the TV verified the panel was defected. Sony only offers a 1 year warrenty on thismTV. I was so dissappointed that I threw 800.00 down the drain on a TV that came from a company like Sony that is world known for excellent products. I got nothing from Sony in exchange for this defective TV except a deficit in my budget of 800.00. I will never buy Sony again and if you do I suggest you get extended warrenty as it seems Sony sells defective products. In this time of a recession, I really
    could not afford losing 800.00 especially on a single income. What a disappointment.
