Our Contest Team have just announced their latest contest for the month of August, the Lockhart Excerpt Contest. Entrants to this month's contest must submit an original, creative, well written, interesting and canon correct excerpt from one of the seven books by Gilderoy Lockhart mentioned in the Harry Potter series.

All submissions must be 500 words or fewer and must be e-mailed to contests@the-leaky-cauldron.org by 11:59 pm (EDT) on the 31st of August, with "Lockhart Excerpt" in the subject line of the e-mail. Entrants should additionally supply a name to be used for authorship (either a real name or your Leaky Lounge name) and copy and paste their story into the body of the e-mail. 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 handcrafted wand donated by Wizard Wood Wands and 200 MyLeaky points. More information, including the full rules of the Lockhart Excerpt 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.

Best of luck to everyone!
