#30 – 2012 OMF Lit-MIBF Bloggers’ Challenge

Posted: September 11, 2012 in 55 Reasons, Announcements

It’s back and it’s even more exciting this year!

Last year’s OMF Lit-MIBF Bloggers’ Challenge was simple but our participating bloggers sure had fun. And this year, we’re mixing it up a bit and changing some of the rules so that more of you can join.

Here are the mechanics:

1. Anyone with a blog/tumblr/Facebook can join. It would also be great if you have a camera/phone camera to document the challenges. Just email idatorres@omflit.com with the following details

  • Full Name
  • Contact Number
  • Facebook/Twitter
  • Blog URL

2. You have the entire Manila International Book Fair (September 12-16) to complete 5 out of the 10 challenges below (you can also choose to do ALL 1o of the challenges if you want)

  • Interview one of the OMF Lit authors and have your picture taken with him/her/them
  • Talk to 3 customers at the OMF Lit booth and ask them what book made them fall in love with reading
  • Have a wacky picture taken with one of the Hiyas books (bonus points if your picture is related to the theme of the book)
  • Go up to our mic (while there’s no program of course) and recommend your favorite book to all the book shoppers (have someone take your picture while you’re talking as “proof”)
  • Go around SMX and invite a random person to go to the OMF Lit booth through your powers of persuasion (take a pic with the person if they’re game)
  • Donate one of your favorite books to our Swap. Shop. Share program. Click here to find out more.
  • Post on your social networks (from September 12-15) to invite people to go to the Book Fair. Be as creative as possible in your post. For all the details of the MIBF, click here
  • Take a nice/creative/extraordinary shot of the booth/people/books
  • Leave a handwritten note inside your favorite OMF Lit book for some random person who will buy the book (take a picture of the note as you place it inside the book)
  • Find out what the surprise item 55 is in the 55 Things To Look Forward To at the MIBF

3. After you’ve finished 5 (or more) out of the 10 challenges, write a blog post about it, complete with pictures, quotes from the people you interviewed, or even videos. Deadline for sending us the link to your post is September 21, 2012.
