Thanks everyone for participating. I hope the contest format is fun especially the act of @mentioning your Twitter friends/followers. If you have a comment to make this contest format better let us know!
Entries will be submitted through Twitter. The twist for this contest is that if you want to win, entries are to be submitted by your friends/followers and not yourself! Either you request them to @mention you, or @mention your most generous friends/followers to win and wait for them to @mention you back. At the end of the contest, all @mention entries will be submitted through Randomizer to draw one (1) winner!
The line to tweet is:
Share Moleskine Love! I want @mytwitterfollower to win a Moleskine set from @avalonph! Details here – http://bit.ly/ccDbT3
Obviously, change @mytwitterfollower to any of your friend/follower twitter account (believe it or not in my previous contest some didn’t). As long as you enter your tweet in the format provided, Avalon.ph will easily track all your entries and @mentions. No repeat @mentions. Same @mentions will only be counted once per account.
Before you start tweeting @mention to your friends, here are the mechanics for this contest:
– Contest duration from June 9 up to June 15 (Tuesday) June 16 (Wednesday), 3:00pm, 2010. Winner will be drawn within 12 hours after contest end.
– Winner, or the person you @mention should have a Philippine-based address serviceable by major couriers.
– Must be able to verify your entry and should appear in my twitter stream (@avalonph). In short, if I cannot see your entry because the one who @mention you has a private profile, it will not count. Respectfully request them to follow @avalonph and I will follow back to check the entry.
– At the end of the contest, all entries will be submitted to a Randomizer website and a winner will be drawn.
– Winner will be notified through Twitter. Winner must respond within a reasonable period, preferably 2-3 working days.
– COMMON SENSE apply on all disputes, loopholes and oversights. Avalon.ph is the SOLE arbiter to decide on issues about this contest. Avalon.ph reserves the right not to really change, but to fine-tune the mechanics as we see fit during the duration of the contest.
This is not about who gets the most @mentions like our last contest. All @mentions will be submitted through a Randomizer to draw a winner. Remember, one entry can make a difference. One of the winners of our last draw only had 2 entries (as compared to some who have 20+).
Please do not ask us about how many entries you received. We will not answer inquiries with regards to your number of entries.Remember, some may have private profiles and some Twitter account are ‘spam’/fake accounts. If a user has a private profile it is your job to inform them to follow me. We will only count “valid” entries according to the @avalonph Twitter feed (not yours). What I see on my @avalonph twitter feed is different from what you see on yours.
We do not encourage SPAM. While there’s no limit to the entries/@mentions you can make, please be aware that SPAMMING your twitter stream might cause some of your followers to unfollow you. Please use discretion and respect your follower’s annoyance threshold.
Make one of your Twitter followers happy! Tweet them to win a Moleskine Notebook! Good luck!
Congratulations to @tashaism for having the most Twitter mentions with 57!
For our 2nd winner, we compiled all @mention entries and did a random draw (excluding @tashaism):
Congratulations to @Rambuc! A Large Moleskine Plain Reporter will be shipped to your address.

Thanks everyone for participating. I hope the contest format is something fun especially the generous act of nominating/mentioning your Twitter friends/followers. If you have a comment to make this contest format better let us know! Was it spammy? Do we need to fine-tune some rules? Leave them in the comments section below.
UPDATE (04/23 02:30am): No repeat nominations per user, but you can nominate as many friends/followers as you want. Just be conscious of your Twitter timeline, you don’t want to annoy your friends/followers. Practice FAIR PLAY, do not create Twitter accounts w/out followers just to add up your points. We read and inspect all nominations/accounts. Private profiles must (even temporarily) follow @avalonph and give us enough time to inspect and verify your entry. Remember: all disputes, loopholes, oversights – Common Sense rules!
UPDATE (04/21 13:21pm): We decided to have two (2) winners instead of one! First winner will be the one with most ‘nominations/mentions’, for the second winner we will be compiling all nominations and a winner will be selected through randomizer (1st winner no longer included). Now you have more chances to win!
Let’s head straight to the point. We’re giving away a large Moleskine Notebook through Twitter!

The year 2009 has been an excellent year for the Moleskine notebook. They’ve expanded their product line, and more people Philippines included, are using it to expound their creativity.
Avalon.ph has been a regular destination for competitively priced Moleskine notebooks. We’ve quickly sold out our stocks of the Moleskine 2010 planner — except for one.
To thank all those who have patronized our website the past 11 years (yes we’re that old), as well as a welcome to those who are visiting Avalon.ph and its blog for the first time, we’re giving away the last Moleskine 2010 planner we have!

Sweepstakes winner will be announced before 8:00am December 16. Winner must give their contact information before 12nn December 18. We will exert best effort to communicate with the winner, but if efforts fail we will use our discretion in choosing a new winner. Remember, this is a 2010 Planner so it is essential that the winner receives the item before 2010! We hope that’s clear for everyone especially those planning a long vacation this Holiday season.
Loophole or oversight regarding rules- common sense apply. Avalon.ph is the SOLE arbiter to decide on issues with regards to this contest/sweepstakes.
Good luck everyone!
