The Planeswalkers from Wizards of the Coast’s Magic: The Gathering are overloaded with work due to the launch of Magic 2014 – Duels of the Planeswalkers and are looking for stand-ins for them while they focus on releasing the new game. In order to select a stand-in, the Planeswalkers are requesting potential candidates to submit a photo with a caption explaining why the candidate would make a good stand-in. We’re looking for quality, creativity, originality, enthusiasm and wit – so get inspired and let your photo and caption demonstrate why you would be a good stand-in for your favorite Planeswalker

In addition, the grand prize winner will be awarded a pizza party for their favorite local Wizards Play Network (WPN) retail store.”
