Wizard Currency Symbol Contest Winners Announced
November 05, 2010, 12:20 PM
In October our Contest Team invited you to take part in their Wizard Currency Symbol Contest, which asked you to design and illustrate the three symbols that represent the three denominations of wizard’s currency, the Galleon, the Sickle, and the Knut, and write a short description of the basis or history of the symbols. After receiving many great entries, the judges have now picked the winners as follows:
First Place: Arithmanceer
Second Place: MalfoyDiva
Third Place: Johanna
You can take a look at the entries by clicking on the winner's name. The first place winner will receive a handcrafted wand donated by Wizard Wood Wands (changes monthly) and 200 MyLeaky points. Second and third place will receive 150 and 100 MyLeaky points respectively. Well done to the winners and everyone else who entered!
I liked the second place entry the best but they’re all very good :)
Good work, winners, those were very creative!
the first place winner’s entry has a very polished look. it could easily fit into the wizarding world as we know it, today. i guess i would have liked to see also what the rest of the coin included and how the symbol was incorporated into the entire coin— not just the symbol itself. but whatever, they are all very good :) too bad my entry didnt come together before the due date :/ i was tooo busyyy
Good job Arithmanceer, MalfoyDiva, Johanna and all the other participants!!
Ohhhhh… wicked! Is this Hallie???
Very well done! I think Arithmanceer did a marvellous job, a well-earned first place. But I also really like the other two =D
Yay! I like MalfoyDiva’s best (am I allowed to say that?), and I kinda wish we could have seen more entries :) This was a fun contest, because there was so much room for creativity — and it shows since all three winners have TOTALLY different ideas. Love it!
(And yes, Annette… it’s ME! <— Hallie)
i love the symbols for the first place, but i like the story that goes with the second place better. the alchemy thing was clever for the third place, but its not my favorite.
Congratulations to the winners! You all did great! Also to everyone that entered! I loved the symbols! They amazing and original!
Congratulations! They are really great!
brilliant, they are all awesome!! i really like the first place one. great job cuz it mashed latin (my fave language) and cool symbol interpretation. i also realy like the history for knut
Thanks for the great comments! I Love doing Leaky Contests. They’re always so creative and fun. Big time congrats to well deserved first place Arithmanceer. Enjoy your Wand!!! I loved how you used the chemical elements to define your symbols. Your entry sounded so professional like something one would find in a wizarding history book.
And congrats to Johanna! Using air, water, and sun made for a cleaver story and I love how you actually drew the pictures of the Galleon, Sickle and Knut…wish I’d thought to do that too. : )
Wow, all these entries are impressive and show so much thought! Congrats to all the winners — and to everyone else who took the time to enter, as well. Well done!
These are pretty sweet! Good job to the winners!
