Sony Ericsson is calling for submissions for its second annual Sony Ericsson Content Awards. Designed to honour outstanding achievements in mobile content development, the 2008 Awards are open to all mobile developers who have created content, applications or services for Sony Ericsson mobile phones. 2007 award winners included RealNetworks, Opera and Vringo.
Developers can submit entries between now and 30 November 2008 via the Awards website. This year, Sony Ericsson has broadened the award categories to inspire greater innovation from developers around the world. Finalists will be selected in December and the 2008 winners will be announced in an official online ceremony on 5 February, 2009. 
Award winners will be brought to Lund, Sweden, for a behind-the-scenes two-day mobile content workshop where they will have the opportunity to network and share resources with their peers and executives from Sony Ericsson.
Sony Ericsson is very proud to unveil its 2008 Content Awards and celebrate bringing the best and most innovative content from mind to market, says Bjrn Ahlberg, Head of Sony Ericsson Content & Services. We highly value our relationships with content creators and developers, and as equal partners within the mobile ecosystem. Together, we can create unique propositions and experiences for consumers.
There are seven award categories: Being Productive; Going Green; In-car Applications; Mobile Entertainment; Lifestyle Experiences; Themes & Graphics; and XPERIA X1 Panels, in which Sony Ericsson is challenging developers and content creators to develop XPERIA panels for its Sony Ericsson X1 phone, using new tools from Sony Ericsson Developer World.
