New Contest - Win an ebook reader Cover

Tell us your stories.

We know so many of our fans are writers, it only makes sense to offer a contest that brings out your best qualities!

The images used for our designs come from a lot of places but each tells a story for the person who sees it. Quite often the memories these images produce lead to a different story from one person to the next.

Weave us a story about what you see in our designs and you could win a cover for your Sony Reader or Kindle DX.

Tell us why you chose the image you did. Get your ‘writerly’ juices flowing and include your own description or story of the image you have. Share your story on your own blog or website and add a link to it on our Facebook page.
Don't have a blog? No problem, you are welcome to share your story on our Facebook page.

The contest will run September 15 to October 15, 2009

Rules
Write a short story about one of the images you find on our website
Remember to include which make and model of reader you have so we can get just the right fit
Please include a link to the image you’ve chosen to write about. It does not have to be a cover of a reader, in fact it can be an image you’d LIKE to see Oberon do on a journal or reader cover.
Share a link to your blog post on our Facebook page or send us a tweet on Twitter and we'll post a link for you.
So come on, browse the images on our site and tell us a story!

Good luck all!

I'm confused about how to go about submitting my entry. Do we just link to the "Image Stories" thread on the Facebook page? If we don't have a blog, do we just cut-and-paste the story into the thread?

I think so, superlucky. The link on the fp is broken, but all you gotta do is just add '.com/' before 'oberondesign' in the url and its all good.

There is already one entry on their page

Hi all

Just fixed that link - thanks so much for pointing that out.

As for confusion about posting, yes, you can cut and paste and add to the posterous account or email me and I'll post it for you!

Ask anything anytime.

Have a great evening!
