Are you Harry Potter's biggest fan???

I feel like we should all be saying Happy Birthday to Harry Potter. Fifteen years ago Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was published. Everything began slowly, but Harry Potter and JK Rowling became worldwide phenomenons. Now to celebrate such a momentous day, Bloomsbury have an amazing competition for you to enter. You could win a family holiday to Orlando staying in one of the Universal Studio resorts. What are you waiting for?
Check out the video to celebrate 15 years of Harry Potter.

Here is the information concerning to the competition. 
Celebrating 15 years of Harry Potter magic
The search for UK and Ireland’s biggest HARRY POTTER fan

From an idea born on a train journey, to its creation in a small cafe in Edinburgh Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is the book that started a global phenomenon.  Rejected by many publishers and with an initial hardback print run of 500 copies, it has now sold over 90 million copies worldwide. It is the book that put Harry’s destiny in motion and created a whole new generation of readers. It is hard to think now that before 1997 none of us knew about Hogwarts, Quidditch or Voldemort (who was voted as the favourite literary villain in a recent Bloomsbury poll).

To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Bloomsbury is launching a nationwide competition to find the UK’s biggest HARRY POTTER fan.

Bloomsbury is inviting fans to write a letter of no more than 50 words explaining why they love HARRY POTTER. We are looking for the most creative, clever and entertaining reasons and, while the word limit is set to a strict 50 words, entrants are encouraged to draw, doodle and make their letters as elaborate as possible.

HARRY POTTER fans can only enter by visiting a local bookshop or library and posting their letter in the specially designed postboxes. Over 1800 bookshops and libraries have already signed up to take part. The competition will run from Tuesday 26th June to Tuesday 31st July 2012 after which we will name the UK and Ireland’s biggest HARRY POTTER fan. The winner and runners up will be announced on Saturday 1st September.*

The competition is an ideal opportunity for fans to show how much they love HARRY POTTER as well as supporting their local bookshop or library. Details of how to enter and a list of participating bookshops and libraries can be found on the website:www.bloomsbury.com/harrypottercompetition

Good luck to everyone who enters!


  1. 15 years?! my how time flies. I'm getting old! lol

  2. certainly like your website but you have to test the spelling on quite
    a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling
    problems and I find it very troublesome to tell the reality on the
    other hand I will definitely come back again.
