Links for U.S. players are below, and links for EU players are after the cut.

Win a trip to BlizzCon from the official WoW magazine

If you are one of the many people who were unable to get tickets to BlizzCon or just couldn't afford to go, the World of Warcraft Official Magazine is giving away two tickets, airfare and a hotel stay for the event. Andy Salisbury, an editor at the magazine, had this to say about the contest:
I know as well as anyone that getting a ticket to BlizzCon is difficult. Having sat in the ticket queue with six browsers open across two computers I understand that they can go fast, and despite your best efforts you'll be left peeking in through the Anaheim Convention Center's windows.

However, today those of us with the World of Warcraft Official Magazine are announcing a contest which will allow you to get your very own pair of BlizzCon tickets (with your room and airfare paid for) on us. In order to find out more, either crank up your World of Warcraft launcher, or head on over to our website at www.worldofwarcraftthemagazine.com.
No purchase is necessary to enter, but there are rules and restrictions just like with any contest. Good luck!

Official WoW Magazine looking for guild gathering photos

If you have some photos of your WoW guild getting together in the physical world, you can send them to the Official Magazine for possible publication.

Andy Salisbury or Skaarjonic, one of the editors at the magazine, says:
If you've got any pictures of a real life meetup that you and your guildies had, we'd love to see them! Head on over to our forums at Wowhead, tell us about the get together, and send your pictures to letters@worldofwarcraftthemagazine.com. Who knows, you could find yourself published in the next issue of the World of Warcraft Official Magazine!
Andy also says you should make sure that everyone in the picture is OK with having their image published before submitting.

Again, these are real life photos and not the triumphant screenshot of your guild's Lich King kill. It's really cool you killed him. And I'm sure the screenshot is awesome. But it's just not what they are looking for, sorry. To retierate -- Azeroth: Nay. Earth: Yay!

Official WoW Magazine forums on Wowhead

Wowhead is hosting the World of Warcraft Official Magazine forums. This is now the place to go to ask questions about the quarterly, subscription-only, no-ad magazine. Skaarjonic aka Andy Salisbury, one of the magazine's editors, makes clear in the intro post that they are not Blizzard and will not be revealing any insider info that is under NDA. He is actively answering as many questions as he can, however. Here are some examples: I chatted a bit with Andy, who is actually a guildie of mine (/namedrop), and he had the following quote for our readers:
We're really excited about our new forums on Wowhead! It gives us an excellent opportunity to converse openly with the World of Warcraft community about their thoughts on the magazine. Additionally, we'll be out there picking brains for upcoming articles (for example, our Back to Basics articles that are focused on Battlegrounds) so you could end up being in the magazine!

Plus, if you've got any questions for members of the staff, feel free to let us hear it. See you out there!
