To celebrate the July 28 release of The Karate Kid, starring Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan, Sony Pictures UK today announced the launch of a nationwide search for the UK Karate Kid. Sony Pictures UK is running the search in association with the English Karate Federation and Shine who both share the ethos of The Karate Kid and encourage talent in young people.
Competitors take part by visiting www.facebook.com/KarateKidUK and uploading a 60-90 second video clip of themselves performing a karate routine and 300 words explaining why they should be the UK Karate Kid. The entry phase of the competition is open now and runs until Sunday, June 20. The second phase of the competition will start on Thursday, June 24 when a shortlist of 10 competitors will be up for public vote via the Facebook page. The 3 finalists will be announced on Thursday, July 8 with the UK Karate Kid being announced the week of the UK Film Premiere.
Entrants have a chance to win a cash prize for their karate club, youth/sports organization or school plus the chance to win tickets to the star-studded UK Film Premiere of The Karate Kid on Thursday, July 15, attended by Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan.
