Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) is seeking a gaming enthusiast to judge the best creations by the LittleBigPlanet community for PlayStation Vita in a Europe-wide competition.

The competition will ask fans of the LittleBigPlanet series to design mini games using the functionality of the PlayStation Vita in order to win an internship at Swedish studio Tarsier, the team behind the game.

But before they can choose an intern, Sony needs to find a passionate Irish gamer fit to judge the multitude of entries due in October. The winning candidate will assume the title of ‘chief portable entertainment efficacy director’ and be tasked with judging the games created by the LittleBigPlanet community.

For his or her trouble, the judge will be brought to PlayStation’s Dublin HQ and given a PlayStation Vita, as well as a day’s training in game testing.

The judge will then have to play through the entries submitted for the internship competition and let the development team know who they think is worthy of a chance to further develop and polish the mini game at Tarsier.

Candidates can apply online, where they’ll be asked to tell Sony in no more than 200 words why they think they should win this role. The most creative, humorous and unique answer will win.

Entrants must be aged 18 or over and the closing date for applications is 15 August.
