Winners of the New Years Day Festival Art, poetry and photography competition 2010:


Throughout every part of Elftown,
Citizens gather with a feeling of trite.
Not a cheerless face can be found.
We are united by celebration, tonight.

Florissant fireworks blast.
It’s midnight here.
Shadows of bright light are cast;
Whispers saying, “Kiss me, dear?”

Laughter and merriment surrounds.
Flutes of the finest glass tink,
The roar of gleeful children sounds
As Hedda pours my lover and I another drink.

Humans dance ‘round fires like gypsies,
Halflings sit with their lovers in toe,
Orcs and Elves are festive and tipsy;
Who the dwarfs kiss, we’ll never know.

2010 lights up the spacious sky,
Signaling another year has passed.
Bottle rockets begin to fly,
I hope my resolutions this year last.

Up in the midnight sky,
A sudden and instant reminder,
Forever we live and die,
This year we must be kinder.

2009-12-28 [*Phoenix*]: where would I put a photo manipulation? It would go under art, right?

2009-12-28 [Ihsahn]: Yes but sadly the art section was closed on the 24th for some reason, yet we have no entries...

2009-12-29 [*Phoenix*]: But that was a stupid deadline! It was before Christmas!!! grr...and I worked on making it too because this page says it's open.....

2009-12-29 [Ihsahn]: I am the owner of the page, seeing as I see no entries, I am sure I can extend the deadline to match that of the photography.
