Submissions must be e-mailed to by 11:59 pm (EDT) on the 31st of October, with "Wizard Currency" in the subject line of the e-mail. Entrants should additionally supply a name to be appear with your designs (either a real name or your Leaky Lounge name). 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.

Good luck to everyone!

We’re looking for the story of where the symbols came from — similar stories as where the British pound or American dollar symbol came from in the write-up.

Good luck to everyone and we hope to see you all enter!
