“On a tan parchment-like background, there are drawings of a pegasus, dragon, water nymphs and a phoenix on each corner...In the middle of the graphic, there is a drawing of a female fairy, and underneath that is the Fanlore logo and the word ‘Bingo’ in large decorative font, and ‘2024’ in a smaller font. The fairy’s wand is glowing and it appears like she is casting a spell on the words."
