May 14, 2013
Show the world that you can work from anywhere.

Microsoft understands that it's so important for people who are constantly on the move to have access to their virtual office. Having the ability to work from anywhere and on a number of devices is really important to sole traders, freelancers, employees and the like. So with Microsoft launching Office 365 they aim to make it easier than ever before to work from literally anywhere.

Microsoft are challenging creative enthusiasts to submit artwork or photos (new or existing) illustrating the theme 'work from anywhere' using the logos provided. If text is used, you can download the font here. Winners and runners up will win cash prizes and have their work displayed across Microsoft's official channels and media partnerships.

The type of work which will catch the judge’s eye will be far more than working from home, originality and creativity will be at the top of the criteria list.
Office 365 provides anywhere access to your familiar Office applications, email, calendar, video conferencing, and most up-to-date documents, across your devices – from PCs to smartphones to tablets.

"Where have I found myself working? Well I was interviewed whilst on a canal boat in France once. It was over two days by three different executives, all via Lync call and video on my laptop. This was all whilst negotiating locks and nursing a broken ankle. Not sure that it’s that exciting though, so I can’t wait to see how other people have worked from anywhere”.
