To celebrate the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Illustrated Edition by J.K. Rowling, illustrated by Jim Kay, Bloomsbury Children’s Books is launching the Harry Potter Spotter competition in association with children’s charity, Kids in Museums and The Telegraph newspaper.

The Harry Potter Spotter competition launches on Friday 9th October. It challenges people of all ages to seek out and photograph an image from the book placed in museums around the country and share via social media. Working with Kids in Museums, Bloomsbury has placed 12 Jim Kay prints in 12 different museums around the UK and Ireland. With a clue to solve at each venue participants must find these images, take a photo of themselves with it and share via Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #HarryPotterSpotter.

 The clue “find Harry and Hagrid and watch as they float/ from Reading to Marlow in a small ‘River’ boat” will lead participants to the River & Rowing Museum where a mystery print will be displayed in one of the galleries.

Chief Executive Ludo Keston says that the River & Rowing Museum is thrilled to be taking part in the Harry Potter Spotter trail.

“As part of our ongoing support for the wonderful Kids in Museums initiative, we are very excited to be a part of this literary phenomenon. Harry Potter is even more English than the sport of rowing! It is wonderful to be hosting this beautiful Harry Potter illustration, but we won’t tell you where it is in the Museum. Well, maybe just a small clue…look out for an ancient English log boat!” Mr Keston said.

One overall winner will receive a family ticket to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter plus a Harry Potter tote bag, a Jim Kay signed print and a copy of the Deluxe Illustrated Edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (RRP: £150). 12 additional prize winners, one from each museum, will receive a Harry Potter tote bag, a Jim Kay signed print and a  copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Illustrated Edition (RRP: £30). Participants only need to spot one print to enter.

The Harry Potter Spotter competition launches on Friday 9th October and closes at midnight on Sunday 1st November.
