Ever present, but never seen
A old as hills, as deep as sea,

XI. Tolkien Mailing Competition

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 23, 2016, 10:36 AM

The Hungarian Tolkien Society announces the 4th year of the international “Quendi” category of the Tolkien Mailing Competition. The competition is in English, open to individual participants. In the course of the Competition you will face different challenges like quizzes, riddles and creative tasks. The five rounds of the competition will last from October to March.

The application deadline is October 2nd, 2016.

There is a maximum limit of 60 for the number of participants in this category. Even though the participation didn't reach this number previously, don't leave the registration to the last  moment.

Participation in the Quendi category requires a thorough knowledge of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion and, perhaps, The Children of Húrin. Some questions (riddles, quizzes, etc.) will refer to other works by Tolkien, but you will have about four weeks for each round, that is, plenty of time to look up in the books everything you might need.

There will also be some creative challenges. For example, you may be asked to describe a situation, write a short poem, make a drawing or take a photograph, etc. with the possiblity of the best of your works—with due credit to authors/artists—being published by the Hungarian Tolkien Society, e.g. on their website,, or in their journal, Lassi Laurië. The artwork shouls not be published without consulting them first, and especially not before the deadline of the round in question.

The contest starts in October and continues until March. Every month you will receive the questions of the next round, and you will have to submit your solutions until the indicated deadline. Communication will be via e-mail.

There will be no prizes in the international category, only the public announcement of your achievement and a certificate sent by e-mail. There is no registration fee, either.

You can find more information about the contest and an online registration form here:…

P.S. It's really a great competition for all Tolkien lovers and artists, so I highly recommend you to participate! It might get a bit time consuming to fulfill the challenges, but they are very fun and inspiring, and you are always welcome to submit even incomplete answers or ask for a few days of extension. After winning for 3 years, I'm not going to compete this year, so it might be your chance ;)

Some of the creations for the creative part of the contest (those I could find on deviantart, so mostly just from 2 contestants, and one of them is me...) include:

Snow is falling high
In the woods tonight
Cloudy is the sky,
But one window is bright
Bear sleeps in his den,
Rabbit in his hole,
Beorn invites all the men
to his wooden hall!

Ponies, dogs and sheep
We meet here again,
While sun goes to sleep
With round or pointy ear,
The tall and the small
Everyone is welcome here
In Beorn's merry hall!

News from Middle-earth

I'm doing an interview series with Tolkien artists, already containing over 50 talks with some of the most inspiring artists in Tolkien fandom. Check the full list here:

The list featuring a few pictures from the interviewed artists had to be split due to size limit:

I also have a fanfiction account. I do not post most of my fanfiction stories on deviantart, but you can find the full list of them with links and also banners and illustrations here:
:icontolkienplz: My stories from Middle-earthI usually do not post my fanfiction stories here at dA (and won't until they enable to post multi-chaptered stories as one deviation, otherwise it would make a mess in my gallery...) I post them under my and Stories of Arda account:
Now I got the idea to post at least the links to them here, together with the banners and illustrations. My stories feature mostly Aragorn, and several also Eärendil, but there are a few with other characters as well. I will update this journal when I post a new story.

My projects

Plant trees and get free art requests from great artists! There's never enough of trees!
:icontreehuggerplz: Art for Trees - project:iconspringtree-1plz::iconspringtree-2plz::iconspringtree-3plz::iconspringtree-4plz::iconspringtree-4pl5:
"When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second best time? Today."
- Chinese proverb
2014: This is the 3rd year of the project. There are many people supporting it, featuring it in their journal and offering art. BUT... There have been NO trees planted for it in the last year (I don't count mine). So, instead of talking about it, how about getting up and actually planting a tree, if you are able to? There is a lot of wonderful art waiting for you as a reward!
Trees are important, valuable and necessary to our very existence. It's not too hard to believe that, without trees we humans would not exist on this beautiful planet. Trees are the largest and longest living organisms on earth. To grow tall the tree has become a miracle of engineering and a complex chemical factory. It is able to take water and

Interested in riddles and puzzles? I have a cypher game for you!
:? sifro. - solve the codes and win points! IMPORTANT: the login into the submmitting system currently doen't work. I'll try to fix it somehow, but until then, the "Try it without login" link still works. If you submit the solution to a cipher, it will give you a link to the next one. It just won't remember your position in the game, so better save that link, or remember the solution so you can get it again.
:new:  May/10/2016 - The game is still alive! :) simbalm solved it in under one day, winning 303 points!
July/7/2014 - After a year and half, we finally have a next winner! It's Dimensionwalker21, winning 360 points. Congratulations!
Dec/24/2012 - We have a next winner! It's WintersRead, winning 306 points!
Nov/11/2012 - The second winner is nuvak! He generously refused the point reward, so there is still a lot of points in the pool for the next winner!
Oct/12/2012 - We have the first winner! It's ninquetari, who wins 475 points!
Aug/1/2012 - The easy day was yesterday!

...and traveling Noldorin elves! Follow their journeys here:
:icondreams-of-arda: Finrod's Travels - diaryThese little guys are travelling around the world! (Every participant of the project keeps his own figure, and sends the others further after taking them to cool places near their home)

Here is their route:

I decided to keep a travel diary for them, so you all know where they are in the moment :) Those who already had them, PLEASE upload your photos, so I can add them here! It can be in your scraps if you don't want to spam your main gallery, but we would all like to see the awesome locations where the Noldor have been, right, family? Remember that you can still take photos of your figure when you go somewhere interesting, even if you already sent the others further!

I also send a request to add the picture to my group TheLotRClub , but it seems there is some bug not letting the requests through today - at least I don't see it in the activity log. Could you please tell me if you got the request or not?
