I’m just going to be bad and steal most of the wording from RupertGrint.net since they put it so wonderfully.

Warner Bros. let us know that we may apply to send one person to cover the Harry Potter Countdown Event being held in Japan on August 11, 2010 in preparation for the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The details of the event are:

1) Theme: Harry Potter’s Countdown Event for the fans
2) Date: August 11, 2010
3) Place: at a main theater in each of 5 key cities (Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka, Sapporo)
4) The event will include:
– A look back at the films from HP 1 – HP 6
Exclusive footage from HP 7 Part 1
– Give aways, and more.
**Please note that details may change***

I will be submitting one eligible fan’s name to be considered for a press pass at the event. Any of our Japan-based readers can apply as long as they meet the following criteria:

1. You must be available and able to attend the event at one of the following cities on Aug. 11: Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka, or Sapporo. Please do not apply if you are not certain you are fully available on that day. Details about time and exact location will follow from Warner Bros.

2. You must be 18 years old or older.

3. You must submit a writing sample in English (for example, a blog entry, news article, essay, etc.). If possible, please submit the sample in the body of the email or as a link to a webpage. It can be complete or a portion of a larger work, as long as it is enough to demonstrate your writing ability.

4. Please be committed to covering the event and submitting a report for publication on Magical-Menagerie. You will be attending the event as a representative of the site and as press, not as a fan.

Please note that we must submit our representative’s name as soon as possible, so if you fit the criteria above, please apply by emailing your name, email address where you want to be contacted, phone number, statement that you are 18 years old or older, and a writing sample in English to webmiss@magical-menagerie.com by 2pm Saturday EST!

I will be selecting one name from all eligible submissions to apply for press. Good luck!

The final decision on awarding a press pass will rest with Warner Bros., and attendance is not guaranteed until we have their final word.
