win a weekend with the book Beedle the Bard
Calling all Harry Potter fans!
Want to get your hands on J.K. Rowling's The Tales of Beedle the Bard? Amazon.com wants to send you and a friend to London to spend a weekend with the rare and delightful book of fairy tales handwritten and illustrated by J.K. Rowling herself (security guards included, of course). Open to Muggles ages 13 and older in 24 countries, the Beedle the Bard Ballad Writing Contest challenges you to creatively answer one of the following three questions in 100 words or less:

What songs do wizards use to celebrate birthdays?
What sports do wizards play besides Quidditch?
What have you learned from the Harry Potter series that you use in everyday life?

English-language submissions will be accepted through 11:59 p.m. PDT April 22, 2008. An Amazon.com committee will select 10 semi-finalist submissions (based on creativity and writing style) from each of two age categories: 13-17 and 18-and-over. Amazon.com customers will determine the two finalists and Grand Prize winner by voting for their favorites. The Grand Prize includes transport to London, two nights lodging at a London hotel, as well as an expense allowance. Plus, each of the finalists from the two age groups will receive an Amazon Gift Certificate in the amount of $1,000.

Key contest dates:

April 9-April 22, 2008: Call for submissions.

May 5-May 11, 2008: Semi-finalists are revealed and customers vote for their favorites.

May 13-May 19, 2008: Finalists in each age group are revealed, and customers vote for the Grand Prize winner.

May 22, 2008: The Grand Prize winner is announced.
