      ANNOUNCING THE IRON ARTIST CHALLENGE!
      On Friday of The One Ring Celebration, this is a new competition held
      in the spirit of fun and entertainment. The art produced will be
      auctioned off for charity over the weekend.
      The Iron Artist contest is based on the same principles of the Iron
      Chef TV show from Japan. There will be professional artists on one
      side, and an amateur challenger for each pro on the other side. The
      professionals do not compete against each other, but against the
      challenger in their chosen specialty theme. All artists are free to
      use whatever medium they think they can work in the best.

      If you are an amateur artist, looking to see if you can make it in
      the art world, this is the perfect event for you. We are currently
      looking for 3 amateur artists, one each who can do Children's
      Animation, Illustration and Cartooning, to take on our professional
      Iron Artists.



      GAMES WORKSHOP TO SPONSOR THE ONE RING CELEBRATION: THE LORD OF THE
      RINGS FAN CONVENTION

      The One Ring Celebration, the annual gathering of Lord of The Rings
      fans being held January 20-22, 2006 at The Pasadena Center in
      Pasadena California announced that GAMES WORKSHOP will be a
      presenting sponsor of the convention.

      Games Workshop is the largest and the most successful tabletop
      fantasy and futuristic battle-games company in the world. Major
      brands include Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000. In addition, Games
      Worshop holds a global license from New Line Cinema for a tabletop
      battle-game based on director Peter Jackson's BAFTA and Academy award
      winning film trilogy The Lord of The Rings.

      Games Workshop will be on hand running Mines of Moria demo games and
      painting lessons. Visitors to the Games Workshop area will be
      encouraged to play the Mine of Moria Strategy Battle Game as well as
      paint a model to take home as a complimentary souvenir. Three
      participation games (all models supplied) will be ongoing throughout
      the weekend:
      "The Battle of Pelenor Fields" - Gondor and Rohan vs. Mordor
      "Ambush of the Rohirrim" - Rohan vs. Wargs and
      "At the Gates of Moria" - Dwarves vs. Goblins
      The latest Games Workshop Lord of the Rings releases will also be
      available at the convention.



      DANIEL REEVE of WETA is bringing along some cool items to offer to
      fans at ORC.
      The One Ring Inscription

      These inscriptions are hand-written by Daniel Reeve, the official
      LOTR movie calligrapher, on hand-coloured "parchment" paper. Because
      of the hand-colouring technique used by Daniel (not to mention the
      subtle variations in the hand-written tengwar itself), no two pieces
      are exactly alike. This is a limited edition item – only 500 pieces
      worldwide will ever be created. Comes with matt surround, ready for
      mounting in a standard 8" x 12" frame.

      Invitation to Bilbo's 111th Birthday Party

      YOU are invited to Bilbo's Party of Special Magnificence!!! These
      invitations are hand-written with a quill by Daniel Reeve, the
      official LOTR movie calligrapher, and personalised with YOUR NAME at
      the time of purchase. These are created in exactly the same way as
      the actual movie props, and use the same wording and layout.

      The popular band THE FENIANS will be performing on Friday evening as
      part of our party.



      SATURDAY NIGHT AS PART OF OUR EVENING SHOW

      We will be presenting excerpts from: "Fellowship!" the Musical Parody
      of "The Fellowship of the Ring," the hilarious musical send-up of
      Tolkien's classic tale (now a classic movie) that had the LA Times
      raving about its "inspired silliness... this cast cooks," while the
      LA Weekly calls it "hysterical... rife with one-liners." All your
      favorite characters will be there... except now they're funny! You'll
      see: barefooted tap-dancing Hobbits; an 80's power ballad with
      rocking guitar solo by the rightful heir of Gondor; The Balrog, a
      dark creature of shadow and flame performing his sequin-studded
      cabaret number; and much more! So, fly you fools... to "Fellowship!"

      RINGERS: LORD OF THE FANS

      The documentary narrated by Dominic Monaghan will be screened in its
      entirety at ORC. Don't miss the fun of enjoying this feature with
      fellow fans and the folks that made it happen!

      THE TROUBLE OF THE RINGS
      A Russian Fan Parody
      Once upon a time there was a Russian forum Henneth-Annun.ru, which
      was dedicated to Peter Jackson's movie version of "The Lord of the
      Rings". Shortly after the first part of his trilogy was released in
      Russian movie theatres, fans started to discuss the changes which PJ
      had put into Tolkien's story. At one point came the idea to create an
      own fan movie in the form of a parody. The uncommercial project which
      was only possible through the enthusiasm of the fans, grew in the 3
      years of making to an own journey to Middle-Earth. And as a result,
      three movies with the running time of 75 minutes each were made!
