We will update this post when we get more information:

The contest involves a one page essay detailing the craziest thing you have done involving Twilight, a photo of your room all Twilight decked out, a photo of you.

  1. No Israel?
    :(

  2. Man, this sucks why in germany and not in Holland, where I live. :(

  3. OMG OMG OMG!
    What about Germany though..? Where is the link?
    (:

  4. Theres no link to brazil rules

  5. That’s totally shocking! There will be a winner in Canada, but they exclued Quebec residents like me. Quebec is the second most populous province of Canada. For someone from United States, it’s juste like they say they didn’t want anybody from New-York State!

    Quebec is closer from US than a lot other bigs canadians cities and for the language problem… I mean, come on, do you understand me? >.<

    I'm sory, I know Lexicon have nothing to do with that decision and that chance to meet Stephenie it realy cool, but excluding Quebec, just like that, is really unfair!

    • Twilight_News says:

      I’m hoping when the French publisher clarifies their rules tomorrow they may open it up to Francaphone countries/territories.

      • I hope too! :)

        • I write a letter to Hachette Group yesterday. I received a reponse. Funny, they answer me just I’d ask them to open an 11 place when I only asked why they don’t open the «canadian» place to ALL Canadian. Anyway, thank to the Lexicon for the tact you have in the way you formulate it… But it’s not something about the language.

          “We understand how disappointing this is to the many Twilight fans in Quebec, and the numerous other countries unable to participate in the Twilight International Fan Event sweepstakes. As this is to be an intimate fan gathering, we needed to restrict the number of attendees. In addition, there are many legal restrictions placed upon sweepstakes in Canada (as with all countries), which include a different set of rules for Quebec which is required by law, and we were unable to do a separate sweepstakes for Quebec.

          Best regards,

          Hachette Book Group Canada”

  6. Why not South Africa? There are a LOT of fans here?

  7. Why is it that the Netherlands are never in on fun events like this???? We didn’t have any cast/crewmembers for the premieres and now this. It’s not fair! I’m seriously considering emigrating.

    • Twilight_News says:

      I’m hoping when Carlson(german publisher) comes out with their rules maybe they’ll let you guys enter

      • That would be fantastic! I don’t speak German though so I hope we can enter in English. Anyway, I’m staying tuned …

  8. USA rules: “per person, per household,… per day.”
    Does that mean if I really wanted to, I could mail an entry every day until Feb 12? It might be worth the 44 cents times 30 days if it gets me extra entries.. :)

  9. Katharina L. says:

    i’m from germany and i can’t wait to see the link for the german fans. i’m so excited. i guess i am needing my personal jasper lol :)
    good luck to everyone who’s gonna to try it.

  10. what bout new zealand? it was mentioned in twitter post

  11. Ok,I know they may have thought of this already, but wouldn’t Forks be the coolest place for this to take place? We could actually tour the place with Stephenie! That would be so amazing!

  12. Do you know already what Germany will have to do..?
    And is there an option to do it in English? because I live in Germany but I am not a German speaker.. :|

  13. “The reason why residents of Quebec are not eligible to enter many Canada sweepstakes is not because the sponsors don’t want to advertise in Quebec, and it’s nothing personal against any of the residents of that fine province. Rather, many sweepstakes are void in Quebec because the sponsors must follow a stringent set of rules set out by the Quebec government.
    For example, in order for sponsor to skip the “void in Quebec” restriction, Quebec sweepstakes law requires that the sponsors must do some or all of the following things:

    •Register the sweepstakes rules and all advertisements used to promote the contest with the Quebec government at least 30 days ahead of the sweepstake’s launch.
    •Pay a fee of up to 10% of the sweepstake’s value.
    •Agree to allow the government of Quebec to mediate any lawsuits arising from the contest.
    •Follow strict guidelines about the contents of the sweepstakes rules.
    •Allow the Quebec government to determine if the sweepstake may be changed or canceled once it has started.
    •File a written report after the contest has concluded, attesting that the prizes have been delivered or attempted to be delivered.
    •Agree to follow a number of other rules and guidelines. See the Quebec Sweepstakes Laws.”

    • Twilight_News says:

      Wow that sucks mightily for residents of Quebec

    • I understand that maybe it is a difficult process to do a contest in Canada when the Quebec is included but for me, who live in the Quebec, it’s sad because it’s like that for many and even most of them. I think there’s a little lack of professionalism for a big company like Hachette group who can make the Quebec eligible to the contest by asking for the autorisation. I’m not frustred or something against Hachette group but in the other hand, it’s good to talk about it because maybe contests organizer’s will changed there minds and stopped doing restrictions not to the Quebec but for other places in the world. It will be nice :)

  14. so for the U.S. we can send a card everyday!?! :D

  15. Fiona Cullen says:

    Is Australia in the sweepstakes? :(

  16. I am so glad to see India on he list,too.Definitely entering…this would be a monumental chance!

  17. Stephany CJ says:

    ok, so I guess that if I’m from Peru and live there as well, there is no way in the world that i will be able to enter the contest, uh?…
    Well I’ll be anxiously waiting to hear from the lucky winners

  18. for the german people, the link is online. (click on my name)
    it’s the new entry. for new informations you have to sign in to the newsletter. but they are giving the advice to the german people, that they should read ALL twilight books carefully again.

    • for more informations you have to sign in to the newsletter.. gosh, i guess i’m so excited, that i’m using the wrong words lol

      • Omg Thank you, !
        But thing is, I live in Germany but I dont speak German.. You think I’ll still be able to do it?
        Is it gonna be like a question and answer thing?

        Do you have a twitter so I can ask you ..?

  19. For the UK sweepstakes, where you have to make a 60-second video saying why you should get to meet Stephenie, can we use pictures and/or text or does the entire clip have to be of ourselves talking?

  20. Does this need to be in “postcard” format, or sent in an envelope??? My friends have different opinions…

  21. Theres no link to Mexico’s rules :(
