Hogwarts Yearbook Contest


This contest idea was brought to us by the genius mind of Paint It Black!

This month your challenge is to design a page in the Hogwarts Yearbook. (Technically 2 pages, side by side as you would see them in an open book) The Galleries and Google are filled with images that could be used to create a fantastic page, or if you’re more artistically talented you can even draw all the characters by hand or with any computer drawing program you wish.

You can make a page devoted to a particular Hogwarts House, to a favorite subject, an extracurricular activity (Quidditch, anyone?), or even a "Most likely to..." page featuring the "Cutest Couple", the "Class Clown", most likely “to be minister of magic” one day etc. And your idea can feature whichever era you like; anytime from the very first year when the founders opened the school, to the age when Harry’s own children began attending. Just make sure you stick to cannon, for example having Lily and Snape on the same page would be correct, having Tom Riddle (Voldemort) and Lupin on the same page would not, as they did not attend Hogwarts at the same time. Good luck and get creative! We can’t wait to see your entries.
