Second, Australian Women’s Weekly magazine has now launched a contest to win a pair of tickets to an early screening of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince July 13th. Open to Australian residents ages 18 and old who purchase a copy of the magazine in June can enter for a chance to win tickets to the film, with a total of 1,000 tickets to be given away as part of the contest.

Also, I would enter the comp to see the movie on the 13th, but that would mean buying a copy of women's weekly, and I'm not spending my hard-earned money on that rag, lol... :PAvatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: good luck!Avatar Imagekingdom says: good luck to those who can participate!
