September's WWN broadcast, found here, was all about education! And with the recent start of the term, Diagon Alley is in a bit of a frenzy. One of its shops has just invented and stocked what is sure to become an all-time bestselling item, but... well, not many people know about it! Get your creative juices flowing as we dive into this month's contest and come to the shop's rescue.

TASK
This is a writing and graphics contest. Your task for this month is to choose any Diagon Alley shop (such as the Apothecary, Magical Menagerie, Gambol and Japes, etc.), write a 300-500 word advertisement for its new invention, and submit a visual representation of this item.

RULES
- All HEX terms and rules apply.
- The graphic portion must contain mostly your own work. You may use any medium that you'd like (e.g., photo manipulation, drawing, sculpture, etc.), but any online images that you use must be stock or free-to-use photos. You must also provide links to the image(s) that you use (i.e., to the websites you go the images from).
- The writing portion must contain between 300 and 500 words (inclusive) according to Google Docs. A word count listed at the bottom of your submission is nice, but not necessary.
- All work must be your own. Anyone found to be cheating will be immediately disqualified.
- Entries should be posted in this hidden replies thread by
October 28, 2019 at 11:59 PM HEX time.
- Entries will be judged based on creativity, originality, and adherence to the prompt. First through third place will be determined by judges' voting; all other eligible entries will be randomized for the remaining prizes.
- If you have any questions, then please post them in this thread or owl Raine.

First Place: Crystal Phials + 1000 HP + 4 raffle tickets
