Are You Ron’s Biggest Wheezy Contest

amiAre you Ron’s biggest Wheezy and proud of it? Then prove it! We’re on a mission to find the one Muggle who shows the most love and devotion for our favorite ginger-haired Weasley.

The prizes: A Ron/Harry Potter T-shirt(of your choice) from Hot Topic and and an autographed picture signed by Rupert, exclusively for ICM!

How to Enter(first portion of contest): In a few paragraphs, explain how and why you’re the biggest Ron Weasley fan; and why you deserve to win this contest.

The deadline is February 7th. If you have any questions, or you’d like to email your entry, send it to us at grintasticonline@googlemail.com.

Rules(yeah, you knew they were coming):

-no one or two sentence entries please(ie:  “Ron rawks! I like his ginger hair.”)

-no abusive, racist, or sexually-related material will be considered

-You must be willing and able to complete the second portion of the contest as well(see below).

-If you feel that just a few paragraphs simply cannot capture the essence of your madness(err…fandom) for all things Ron, you may write a short essay. However, you might want to keep reading…

Second portion of contest: If your submission is chosen, you have the option of either writing an essay or making a fan video that are Ron/Rupert related. Not only will you win a T-shirt and a picture signed by Rupert, your creation will also be featured in the next edition of Grintastic!

Deadline for essay or fan video is February 21st.

How cool is that!? So, if you think you’re the biggest Ron fan, we’re ready to help you show the world! Come on you big Weasley lover, you know you want to! 😀
