MuggleNet and graphic artists MinaLima team up for amazing contest
Yesterday, MuggleNet announced what is sure to be considered one of the best contests we have ever had. The chance to win the first reproduction print of the Quibbler Magazine, completely framed and signed by the graphic artists of the Harry Potter films, Eduardo Lima and Miraphora Mina.
Since the announcement yesterday, there seems to be some confusion as to what exactly constitutes graphic art of the Harry Potter series. So hopefully this post will help guide you in your submissions.
Graphic art is ANY physical art piece that would be seen in a film, and is generally created using computer art programs or a creative touch with pen and paper. For instance, the Quibbler magazine cover as seen above is graphic art that was seen in the Potter films. Same with the potion bottle labels, the Marauder’s Map, Daily Prophet newspapers, book covers like the Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore, etc.
You may create your own version of items such as those listed above, but we would also prefer to see something unique. It can be anything from the books that could have existed in the world of Harry Potter.
What kind of advertising would have been on the side of the Knight Bus? What sort of propaganda items could exist at the Ministry of Magic cubicles inside the Auror’s office? What do the books, Dragon Species of Great Britain and Ireland or From Egg to Inferno, A Dragon Keeper’s Guide look like?
There are literally thousands of things you can create in the form of a Graphic Design, so let’s see how creative you all can be. Entries are due by 11:59 p.m. ET Sunday, September 30, 2012. For all rules and guidelines, head on over to the original post right here.
