Illustrated Scene Contest


Feb 01, 2010

Posted by John Admin

Our Contest Team have just announced their newest contest for the month of February, the Illustrated Scene Contest. This month’s contest asks you to illustrate a scene from the Harry Potter series that you find particularly moving. The entries will be judged on how you managed to evoke that way that scene made you feel through the illustration. The entry can be in any medium apart from photography and only one entry is permitted per person. Please e-mail submissions to [email protected] by 11:59 pm (EDT) on the 28th of February with “Illustrated Scene” in the e-mail’s subject line. Entries must be in .jpg, .png or .gif format and the maximum file size is 1 MB. Anyone 13 years of age and over who is not involved in the judging process is welcome to enter and please bear in mind that all entries must meet the PG-13 rating.

The first place winner will receive a custom made wand donated by Wizard Wood Wands and 200 MyLeaky points. More information, including the full rules of the Illustrated Scene Contest, can be found via this link. You can also find further discussion of all of our contests in the Contest Corner Forum at the Leaky Lounge.

Good luck to everyone!

It means you're not crazy (at least according to my German teacher :) Anyway, I'm definitely entering this, despite severe lack of any artistic talent. I have some old illustrated scenes from a few years back which I might work on some more. Avatar Imagenellythemarrow says: Oh I really, really want to do this but I'm out of equipment and it'll take a while for stuff to come :( Out of stock! I might have to resort to pen or something, but I'm rubbish at that. Oh well, I'll still give it a go.Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: unfortunately, the only thing from harry potter i can draw is hogwarts and a picture of just hogwarts wouldnt cut it for this contest. :/Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Sounds great!

I'd love to have a go myself, but never having tried to do any fan art, and having seen some wonderful pictures I don't know if I could be up to standard. Avatar ImageThio says: This is probably a little beyond my drawing skills but I might give it a try!Avatar ImageRosie016 says: I might take a stab at this, every once in a while I get in a mood to draw!Avatar Imagemew5645 says: I think I will try to enter it.

I look forward to seeing the submissions.Avatar ImageKami Malfoy says: Art isn't my best event by any means, but I'm going to think about what scene I may attempt to recreate for this contest. It sounds like it'll be a fun project. =)Avatar ImageLillylove says: There are several images posted in Leaky's fan art section that spring to mind. (I wish it was still working for new art!!! I miss that feature! It was always one of my favorites). There are some extremely talented artists in our fandom that have the gift to depict a scene that brings the moment & emotion to life. This should be a wonderful contest! Good luck all you artististic types!Avatar Imagealicia00 says: coolAvatar Imagealicia00 says: coolAvatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: Ooo now this I can do!! :) Let's see what I can come up with...

The instructions could have been written better.
