"The thing about growing up with Fred and George," said Ginny thoughtfully, "is that you sort of start thinking that anything's possible if you've got enough nerve."
- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

C H A L L E N G E
Hogwarts has very little it can hide that Fred and George Weasley can't find. A new passageway leading... somewhere... has been discovered. Generally, the portrait that guards a passageway knows a bit about what they're guarding - if they know they are guarding anything at all, that is.

This particular portrait was crafted very recently and that artist was... you! Not a lot is known about who the witch or wizard in the image is or why they're hanging up on the castle wall in the first place. Create a character for a portrait guarding the secret passageway. Who are they? What did they do to earn their place? Tell us a small bit about them along with submitting their portrait. Be sure to make it a secret worthy of a Fred-and-George-Weasley Hogwarts discovery!

R E Q U I R E M E N T S
+ Design a portrait guarding a secret passageway of a character of your own creation.
+ Your portrait must be in a gold frame.
+ Include a small bit of information with your entry including who the character is, what they did of significance to earn their portrait, or any other pertinent information without exceeding 500 words.
+ You may use any medium to create your entry.

Hi, thank you for this contest and the new forums.


I just have a question about the fan voting thing. Does this mean that all prizes will be awarded based on popular vote? Or is the fan voting unrelated to the prizes?

Thank you.

The prizes are unrelated to the fan favorite. Fan favorite winner just gets some recognition and an award header to put in their profile or wherever they'd like. The winners for prizes are all determined by the MoMA team.

Thanks for that clarification @julieexann
Sorry if this should be obvious, but do the MoMA team decide based on merit or do they randomise? The reason for asking is because how stuff is judged affects whether I enter contests

No problem! The challenges are judged based on merit, originality, creativity, etc., not randomization.

We also have our four prompts in this forum that are based on participation instead and reward anyone a chance at our monthly incentive (participation in the challenges does this as well) if that interests you.

I would say that should be alright as long as all the requirements are met.

So I have a quick question before I finish up my write-up.

Quote:

Earlier in the assignment you talk about the portrait hiding a secret passage. Should this also be included in the write-up since it isn't mentioned?
