Ever new uses for Moleskines

art, etc.

Contest: My Moleskine 2.0:

Stepcase Lifehack is partnering up with Moleskine and Hong Kong retailer city’super/LOG-ON to give you a chance to show us – and the world – what you can do with a Moleskine notebook. Moleskines are the notebook of choice for creative professionals around the world, and have become a symbol of latter-day nomadism – nobody carrying a Moleskine is ever without a place to capture their most brilliant thoughts!

To celebrate the intimate relationship between lifehacking digital nomads and the Moleskine notebook, Moleskine, Stepcase Lifehack, and city’super/LOG-ON invite you to enter the My Moleskine 2.0 competition. My Moleskine 2.0 is devoted to giving tips and tricks to improve your quality of life by automating, increasing productivity and organising.

Share your ideas, be selected for an innovative exhibition, and win a lifetime supply of Moleskine notebooks!

We want to see your best ideas for hacking your Moleskine – whether to make the ultimate productivity-enhancing tool or the perfect outlet for all your most creative urges. Show us what you can do and you might win free Moleskines for life.

The folks at Moleskine will select the most creative entries, which will be displayed in the My Moleskine 2.0 Exhibition that will take place in all city’super and LOG-ON stores in Hong Kong in July 2009. Your hack will also be presented on moleskine.com, moleskineasia.com, and lifehack.org.

In-store and web viewers will be able to vote on their favorites, and the winners will receive one of these great prizes:

1st prize: a lifetime supply of Moleskine notebooks!
2nd prize: collection of 25 Moleskine notebooks and diaries
3rd prize: collection of 15 Moleskine notebooks and diaries
All other exhibited entries: set of 3 Moleskine notebooks

Send us your idea on how to make and do things better, faster, more creative and innovative, for both work and leisure with your Moleskine notebook!

    I simply don’t have anything that inventive. I’m not very good at drawing or being otherwise design-oriented, but I have already promised myself that I am going to correct that. Of course, I am always going to do it later, so you can imagine how far I’ve gotten on that.

  2. You still have until the rest of the month to come up with a hack. There are 4 different categories, so you have some flexibility. 🙂

    Oh, and thanks for post about my little motivation card!

  3. I ended up just submitting my idea!! It’s a great contest and I am sure there are many cool ideas….
