Hi from HPEF, the team behind awesome Harry Potter fancons (Infinitus, Azkatraz, Portus, Prophecy, Lumos, The Witching Hour and Nimbus - 2003)! We’re hosting ASCENDIO, our next (and final) HP fancon in Orlando in July at Universal Orlando’s Portofino Bay Resort, and a private event called Night of a Thousand Wizards 2 at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter on July 12.
The WWoHP, Ascendio and Universal Orlando are magical, and we’d love to see you there! Ticket & event info is here, our amazing YA novelist reading/signing schedule is here, and our special StarKid Totally Awesome reg pack details are here, so check them out.
But before we get everything started in Florida, we have a few things from cons past and present that we’d love to give away, including an Infinitus umbrella signed by Christian Coulson (Tom Riddle in Chamber of Secrets) and a bunch of Team StarKid, including Darren Criss, Lauren Lopez, Brian Holden and Jamie Lynn Beatty - Joe Moses, who’ll be back for two JMOMS shows at Ascendio.
Chris Rankin (Percy Weasley) and Afshan Azad (Padma Patil) have offered to sign it too, if the winner wants - it’s your choice!
We’re also giving away an Ascendio Swag Bag. Actually, it’s four bags - the official con tote in Hogwarts House colors - and we’re adding a con t-shirt, stickers, Craft Faire surprises and more!
How do you win?
You may reblog this post up to two times a day until midnight Eastern US time on June 25; we’ll do the drawing on June 26 or 27, depending on how many we have to count through.
Likes DO NOT COUNT.
The winners will be chosen by a random number generator. They will have 48 hours to confirm with their address. The first number wins the umbrella, the second number wins the Ascendio Swag Bag (to be shipped after July 17).
We will ship anywhere in the world, except to countries barred by the UN embargo from getting shipments from the US. If you’re attending Ascendio, we’ll give you your prize at the event. The same individual cannot win both versions of the giveaway.
You do not have to be following us, but it’s appreciated! If you are following us and win, you’ll get an extra gift from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in addition to your prize!
Any questions, please just ask here on tumblr. We’d prefer if you’d send an ask with your name on it so we can reply privately and not clog up people’s dashes.
Who cannot win?
Anyone who signed the umbrella, and any HPEF Board Members and Ascendio senior staff. But we appreciate your signal boosts! If someone who’s ineligible reblogs this, and wins either package, we will choose the reblogger at the next number.
What if I know people who’d love to win this, but aren’t on Tumblr?
They can get a new tumblr account and start reblogging this!
And we’ll have a Swag Bag giveaway on Twitter soon, too.
