Join us for the first annual awards show for all things Tolkien. In
a similar tradition to the previous Golden Gandalf's, 'The One Ring
Awards' will incorporate art, literature, film and the spirit of
Tolkien. More details will be announced shortly.
This is just the beginning, there is so much more planned that we
are still working around the clock to organize it all. Fan fiction,
gaming, music, 'Ringers: Lord of the Fans,' Elvish lessons, and
Tolkien Academia to name just a fraction of it all. Watch this
website over the coming months, or sign up for the mailing list, and
learn what else we'll add to the mix.
Thanks for reading and hope to see you there!
