This Christmas, we've teamed up with Sony to give you the chance to win a Xperia Z1 smartphone and a SmartWatch 2.

In keeping with the theme of Sony's own Z1 HIDDEN campaign (see below), we've hidden a code somewhere on our site for you to search for.

As a clue, it's on a news story that has been created in the last week of November and might also have a Sony theme...

Hunt the code down it and submit the entry form below before the end of Friday 13th December, and you might have a particularly merry Christmas this year.


There's also another chance to win a Xperia Z1 as well as a luxury holiday, because Sony has hidden another Xperia Z1 in a water-based wonder of the world across the globe.

Clues to its location will be shared at, tweeted at @sonyxperiagb and posted on Facebook. Simply look out for the clues, guess the location and enter your details to be in with another chance of winning.

The Xperia Z1 features a 5-inch Full-HD display, 20.7 megapixel camera and NFC, as well as water and dust resistance. The SmartWatch 2 is a companion accessory that introduces new ways to live and communicate, as your life is mirrored in your watch.

Gotta find 'em all!

So how exactly do you take part? It's simple...

Simply keep your eyes peeled on this site for QR codes that will be embedded within a news story or review in the coming days.

Scan or click on the codes to reveal a word, then jot it down to enter in the form below.

Once you've got the lot, submit the form and sit tight! We'll inform the lucky winner in time for Christmas.
