SEGA of America and SEGA Europe have announced a contest to celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog's 19th anniversary.

Two winners, one from the US and one from the UK, will each receive a trip for two to Tokyo to visit SEGA Japan and meet the Sonic development team.

To enter, contestants have to 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.

SEGA will choose 10 videos based on creativity, entertainment and effort and then submit them for the SEGA community to choose their favourite.

"In honor of the nineteenth anniversary of our favorite hedgehog, we wanted to find a special way to thank Sonic's fans throughout the years," said Haruki Satomi, executive vice president of SEGA of America. "We think this contest is a great way to give fans a chance to express their creativity, enthusiasm and support for Sonic."
