On the 17th December 1982, Jim Henson's 'The Dark Crystal' premiered. So we thought we would celebrate this 38th anniversary with another action packed Thra-Athon virtual event! This time with a festive twist.
With help from our friends at The Angle of Eternity, & Artist Eliane Torralba we will be bringing you competitions, raffles, quizzes, guest talks & more!
Holiday Card Contest
We would love for you to design a Dark Crystal inspired Holiday card! The top 3 card designs will be made into real life holiday cards and sold here to raise funds for future Dark Crystal events, activities & Charities. Our special guest judge is the fantastically talented Cory Godbey! And the top prize winner will receive a one of a kind signed Cory Godbey sketch print.
To give you some inspiration, here's the beautiful winter design by talented artist Eliane Torralba titled 'Mystic Celebration'. This will also be available to purchase as a Holiday card from Eliane's Etsy page.

Festive Thra-athon raffle
Back by popular demand! With lots of great prizes to be won. Tickets go on sale now just £1.00 per ticket. Prize draws will be live on Facebook (17th -18th December) with special guests. Wouldn't it be a wonderful Christmas treat to win a present for yourself!
Fan fiction Contest
We would love for you to write an original Dark Crystal fan fiction or poem. What would a holiday celebration be like on Thra, in the life of a Gelfling, a Podling, or even the Mystics & Skeksis? 3 winners will be featured in narrated videos and 1 lucky winner will have their entry illustrated by Eliane Torralba .
