Sticker Competition and Haruki Murakami Fan Ambassador Contest

On August 6 a "sticker competition" was announced on Haruki Murakami's Facebook page. In June I posted about stickers that will come with the British edition of Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki. The readers are to decorate their books to "create their own personalized covers." Now it turns out that they can also enter a competition. We read on Facebook:

"To enter, email a photograph of your sticker design as a 300dpi jpeg to by 31st August. All the entries will be added to our special album ‘Sticker Competition’ ( where you can also vote for your favourites. The book cover with the most ‘likes’ on 31st August will be crowned the winner. A selection of the best entries as voted for by you will also be exhibited at Waterstones Piccadilly in London on 30th August at Haruki Murakami’s public signing."

On this page you can also read more about the competition and see an example of a decorated cover on video.  

Not to be undone, the American publishers came up with another contest on the very same day: 

Share your love of reading Haruki Murakami's writing with your friends and family; enter for a chance to be a Murakami fan ambassador.
25 winners will receive four copies of NORWEGIAN WOOD to share with the readers in their lives and a signed copy of COLORLESS TSUKURU TAZAKI AND HIS YEARS OF PILGRIMAGE to keep.
15 runners-up will receive an artwork inspired by the new book, signed by Haruki Murakami.
For more information/to enter visit:

(The contest runs until 8/12/14. Our apologies, this contest is open to US residents only).
