Love photography? Love your mobile? Love the glamour of the red-carpet? Now your passion can earn you a role as an official Sony Ericsson photographer.

Just grab your camera and start sharing the results on Flickr.

And you could also win a C905 Cyber-shot(TM) cameraphone with 8.1 megapixel camera along the way, too.

Sony Ericsson C905 Photographic Competition:

Attend a number(i) of key red carpet events in 2009 as an official Sony Ericsson Photographer.

What does that mean? Well ONLY that you get to behind the scenes to some of the year's most exciting events - which could be a film premiere or music awards ceremony - to snap away on the hottest Sony Ericsson cameraphone of the moment, which yes, you get to keep.

The competition is only open to people based in the UK. Sorry if that doesn't include you.

If it does, join and upload a 'never before published online' portrait shot YOU took to our Flickr group. Then go out and find people to vote for your efforts.

Sign up to Flickr.

We'll give you some tools to show off your work and drum up support, including a facebook badge, and other simple applications to share on your own social network profiles and blogs.

This link allows you to create a competition badge to embed in any webpage and will stream all pictures you upload to the group. We hope it'll help you get support from your friends.

The individuals who create the five pictures with the most 'Favs' will go through to the final round where they are provided with a C905 (8.1 megapixel) camera-phone which they get to keep.

They will be challenged to a take a particular picture (revealed the night before) every day for a week. Again the individual who gets the most combined 'Favs' for their series of seven pictures wins the 'red carpet' prize.
