Hogwarts House Challenge!
Most of you are of the geeky persuasion, and I've been jokingly awarding points to people's Hogwarts houses for a few weeks. I don't know why it didn't occur to me sooner to make it into a legit contest! 

So I'm thrilled to announce that from now until December 31, 2016, all Patrons who publicly assign themselves to a House will be in the running to win a prize pack, including a print, a $50 shoot voucher, and more! Since the prize will be awarded to a House instead of an individual, you're loosely working together! Share this with your friends and get them on board–all Patrons in good standing, even if you're only pledging $1 a month, are eligible!

Points can be earned through activity and participation, insightful or humorous comments, good memes, tasty treats, and blatant ass-kissery (and obviously for particularly good bits of magic)! If you get a friend involved but they're in a different House, you'll still get points for bringing friends!

Facts:

  • Totals will be tabulated in the monthly Admin updates, so you can see where your House stands
  • You can pick whichever House you'd like, but you must declare it publicly, and you must stick with it for the duration!
  • You must be a Patron in good standing, with at least one completed billing cycle for any amount. The longer you're here, the more points you can earn for your House and the better your odds of winning!
  • To receive your prize you must be willing to provide me with a physical address. The owls need to know where to go! Shoot vouchers can be used in Philadelphia, or if I'm traveling to your area!
  • Prize prints will be approximately 8x10/8x12, determined by what best suits the art. Winners will be given options to choose from.
  • I am a Ravenclaw, which is presently the only unrepresented house! I promise not to play favorites!
  • Don't know your house? There are many quizzes to help, or you can get officially sorted at Pottermore.
  • In the event of a tie, we'll go to an impartial judge to determine the winner.

Sorry for all the exclamation points! I'm really excited about this.
