UK Fans Can Become Harry Potter Spotters with Bloomsbury
The new illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone just hit stores a few days ago, and it’s already making a stir with fans across the world. To celebrate the new release, Bloomsbury is teaming up with children’s charity Kids in Museums and the Telegraph to launch a special sort of competition for UK-based Harry Potter fans. The Harry Potter Spotter Competition officially kicks off at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, October 9, 2015.
How does it work?
Bloomsbury published the details on its website. Twelve different museums around the UK and Ireland are participating in the competition, in which hopeful Harry Potter Spotters need only to visit one of the participating museums and find one of the Jim Kay prints hidden there to enter and win. Spotters need only find one of the prints, but there’s no harm in trying to find all 12 either. All prints are located either in museums that are free to the public or in free-to-access areas of paid museums, so there’s no cost to enter!
Besides the wonderful feeling of satisfaction, you’ll surely get from finding one of the elusive prints, Bloomsbury also announced some very interesting prizes. Prizes include family tickets to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter for the grand prize winner, as well as prizes for 12 additional runners-up.
Hopeful Harry Potter Spotters have until midnight on November 1, 2015, to hunt for the prints.
