Pottermore announces winner of Proudest House Contest

proud1Last month Pottermore News reported on Pottermore’s Proudest House Contest, in which Pottermore fans posted their displays of Hogwarts House Pride on social media over the weekend; the winner was determined by whichever House delivered the highest amount of mentions.

This week, Pottermore announced the winner of the contest and the substantial prize of 1 million house points — Slytherin! Between the four houses, each representing a Hogwarts house on Pottermore, Slytherin sent in 37% of the messages on social networks including Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram. Gryffindor and Ravenclaw each accounted for 23% of the messages, while Hufflepuff contributed 17%.

In a fair action, Pottermore rewarded both Gryffindor and Ravenclaw with 230,000 points and Hufflepuff with 170,000. However, only members of Salazar’s house received this special message:

Pottermore fans participated in the Proudest House Contest over a Celebration of Harry Potter weekend at Universal Resort in Orlando, Florida, the location of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park. The celebration brought together fans and official Potter people alike, including cast and crew from the films and representatives from Pottermore and the Harry Potter Studio Tour.

Echoing our favorite author, we say, “Congratulations, serpents!” The seventh Pottermore House Cup competition is well underway; it will be a few more months until Pottermore announces the winner. So, get brewing and dueling!
