Ok, this is a seriously late post, seeing as I'm about a week late, but Tuesday 26th June was Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone's 15th birthday!! To celebrate, Bloomsbury is holding a huge competition to find UK and Ireland's biggest Harry Potter fan!
How are they doing this? you may ask. Well, Bloomsbury is asking fans to write why they love Harry Potter in a letter of no more than 50 words. They're looking for the most creative, wacky and clever reasons, and while they're really, really strict about the whole 50-words thing you're allowed to doodle and do fancy handwriting to make your letter as elaborate as possible!
You can only enter by heading to your local bookshop or library and posting the letter in a special postbox. Head to this site here to find your nearest shop or library and for more details. The competition runs from Tuesday 26th June to Tuesday 31st July 2012, and then the winner will be announced Saturday 1st September.
Now onto prizes. The winner and 14 runner ups will get an exclusive leather-bound, signed, dedicated and numbered 15th Anniversary Edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. But the winner gets something extra... They win a family holiday to the amazing Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort!! In Florida!!
Ohh, it's all just too cool! It's safe to say that I'll be entering, as will most of my family! So if you live in UK or Ireland, get writing! This competition is just too good to pass up!!
Good luck everyone!!
