Title: *ANNOUNCEMENT* The Age of Aquarius
Post by: deenan on January 14, 2009, 09:55:21 pm

Always & Forever's section on the main site initiated in 2008 called The Age of Aquarius (http://always.ejwsites.net/aquarius.html) is in celebration of Elijah's birthday on January 28th. I would like to collect any creative works you would like to share. If you want to submit something you've worked on, this is what is needed:

*A copy of your work. (Poems, writings, videos, artworks, etc.)

*If submitting a video, supply a link. Please, no links to personal websites.

*Your name that will be posted with your work.

*Items submitted must be your own creation. (We understand about music in videos) Keep in mind this page is for a celebration. No slash will be accepted, so compose your items in a positive and appropriate nature.

*Please email your work to me at af_elwood@yahoo.com or deenan@ejwsites.net no later than Saturday, January 18th 2014. Anything submitted after that date will not be included.

*Items will be posted to A&F as they are sent, so make sure to proof read your work. I will look over all items sent to make sure they are appropriate for posting. On January 28th 2014, the new entries will be available for viewing.

If you have any questions, please email me. Even if you believe you don't have talent to submit something, send it anyway. You know the old saying, It's the thought that counts." We hope to see a lot of participation in this project.

Thank you,
~Deenan

since the section is pertaining to elijah's birthday, it would be best if things sent had something to do with that. :)

Of course, i have sent you a couple of my best stories of another site webook they have been revised. i have no elijah related poems unfortunatly.

This is a great idea Deenan - I'll chip in as soon as I can either find something or write something. Is there a limit on length for stories/poems and things?

Title: Re:*ANNOUNCEMENT* The Age of Aquarius
Post by: deenan on January 15, 2009, 08:16:55 am

thanks maryd. :)

there is really no limit to length, but short stories/poems are probably best.

i've revised the announcement to add that NO slash will be accepted. elijah's birthday... any birthday is a happy, festive occasion, so your work should complement that. just think of if elijah were to visit the site and stumble upon his birthday greetings, what would he like to see? ;D

i've received a couple of things that aren't necessarily artistic, but words from the heart. if you care to send something such as that, please do. :)

a few more lovely things have come to my email since i last posted. there's about 15 hours left to come up with a poem, artwork or even if you just want to leave a greeting for elijah. keep in mind, this will be a permanent fixture and yearly event (like a birthday is ;)) so it's something to look back on and remember. :D

It's a lovely tribute to Elijah and something I'd think he'd enjoy seeing whenever he comes to this site as he may do periodically. ;)

Deenan, you've done a great job in organising this, as has everyone who contributed! I got through everything ecept the video section, be back to that one when I have more time, lol - and what really struck me was how different everything was! It's a real celebration - fun and different and heartfelt. I'm sure Elijah would be honoured. :)

if you missed out on entering something for elijah's birthday last year, go to the first page to read the revisions for his next birthday. :)

Title: Re:*ANNOUNCEMENT* The Age of Aquarius
Post by: maryd on December 07, 2009, 04:33:46 am

Nice work in getting this up and running again Deenan! I'll certainly contribute something. :)

Title: Re:*ANNOUNCEMENT* The Age of Aquarius
Post by: deenan on December 08, 2009, 08:04:48 am

hopefully there will be more submissions this time because there's more time to get them in. :)

Title: Re:*ANNOUNCEMENT* The Age of Aquarius
Post by: deenan on December 30, 2009, 07:34:16 am

c'mon folks! i know there's a lot of talented people out there, so lets get those birthday wishes, greetings and such in. a little less than 3 weeks until the deadline. i've only gotten a few and i hope to have more than last year. i know the holidays can be busy, but that date will sneak up in no time.

you can also send in more than one thing if you're have them. :)

Title: Re:*ANNOUNCEMENT* The Age of Aquarius
Post by: maryd on December 31, 2009, 05:44:40 am

Deenan - I'm getting round to it, lol!! :P Is it your email we send the entries to?

Title: Re:*ANNOUNCEMENT* The Age of Aquarius
Post by: deenan on January 12, 2010, 07:39:20 am

yes, to my email is how to send things. thanks for your submission maryd. :D

just 5 days left to submit your work for this project. i've gotten some great things so far, but not as many as i had hoped for. a greeting? a little poem? a graphic you slaved over but never wanted to share? all are welcome!

let's show how much we appreciate elijah, especially on his birthday. :)

Title: Re:*ANNOUNCEMENT* The Age of Aquarius
Post by: deenan on November 09, 2010, 06:49:23 am

ok... no excuses this coming year. i'm starting the call for submissions extra early this time because elijah will be celebrating a very special birthday.

0000! ;D

read the revised announcement at the beginning of this thread to find the deadline, but there is a little more incentive. anyone who submits their greetings, poems, artworks, etc. will be entered into a drawing to receive not one but two of elljah's films on dvd.

which films they'll be will not be divulged until the lucky person gets therm. ;)

we really need to show how great elijah fans celebrate his birthday, so get your creative caps on! :D

I am so doing this. :D

Title: Re:*ANNOUNCEMENT* The Age of Aquarius
Post by: deenan on December 20, 2010, 07:24:41 am

ok, you elijah fans! it's less than a month until the deadline. i'm still waiting on all those who said they're going to send something in and those who may be shy about sending something. this is a big birthday for elijah. don't be left out when it comes time to celebrate.

email me with your works and don't forget about the DVD give-a-way for submitting. go to the age of aquarius (http://always.ejwsites.net/aquarius.html) if want to get an idea of things that have been sent in before.

Title: Re:*ANNOUNCEMENT* The Age of Aquarius
Post by: deenan on February 11, 2011, 05:23:00 pm

many thanks to everyone who submitted their videos, artworks, poems and stories for this year's aquarius. i think it was a great success! there was a dvd give away for the submissions, and margaret is walking away with 2 of elijah's films!
