Illustrated Scene Contest

February’s contest invites you to illustrate a scene from the Harry Potter series which you find especially moving. It might be a scene that makes you happy or sad, angry or frightened. It might be one that inspires you or has you rolling on the floor laughing. Whatever scene you choose, try to get the feeling of that scene across in your illustration. The judges will not be looking for great artistic skill, but for the ability to share with others, through your artwork, the mood your chosen scene evokes for you.

Contest Rules
  • Create an illustration for any scene from the Harry Potter books which seems special to you. The goal of your illustration is to convey to others the feeling or mood the scene gives you. You may use any medium except photography.
  • Anyone 13 years of age and over may enter the contest, including staff members who are not involved in the judging process.
  • One entry per person.
