Our Contest Team have just announced their newest contest for the month of February, the Illustrated Scene Contest. This month's contest asks you to illustrate a scene from the Harry Potter series that you find particularly moving. The entries will be judged on how you managed to evoke that way that scene made you feel through the illustration. The entry can be in any medium apart from photography and only one entry is permitted per person. Please e-mail submissions to by 11:59 pm (EDT) on the 28th of February with "Illustrated Scene" in the e-mail's subject line. Entries must be in .jpg, .png or .gif format and the maximum file size is 1 MB. 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 custom made wand donated by Wizard Wood Wands and 200 MyLeaky points. More information, including the full rules of the Illustrated Scene 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.

Good luck to everyone!

I think I’m going to give it a try. I’ve wanted to draw something HP for a while now and this is the perfect time. Now I just have to pick what I want to draw.

Art isn’t my best event by any means, but I’m going to think about what scene I may attempt to recreate for this contest. It sounds like it’ll be a fun project. =)

There are several images posted in Leaky’s fan art section that spring to mind. (I wish it was still working for new art!!! I miss that feature! It was always one of my favorites). There are some extremely talented artists in our fandom that have the gift to depict a scene that brings the moment & emotion to life. This should be a wonderful contest! Good luck all you artististic types!
