Facepunch Video Contest

Now that everyone has their copy of New Moon and has watched it over and over again, we’d like to issue a contest of sorts for those of you that are up to the challenge. One of our favorite scenes in the film is the movie theatre three way date scene. Many of you will probably agree that it was one of the most uncomfortable and yet funny moments of the film. The movie that Bella, Jacob, and Mike go to see is called “Face Punch,” which is a totally made up film title that Chris Weitz came up with after trying out several other bad movie titles that were actual films!

Here is our challenge to you: Make a trailer for the fictional movie “Face Punch.”

We do have a few rules and guidelines.

1. The video must be between one minute and two and a half minutes in length. Any video longer than two minutes and thirty seconds will be disqualified.

2.  The video should resemble traditional trailers of various scenes and not be one long, continuous scene.

3. The video can use dialogue and references from The Twilight Saga: New Moon but it cannot be the actual recorded sound from the film.

4. The video must be posted on YouTube on your own channel. We will not host your video for you.

5. You must send us a link to your YouTube video to facepunchcontest@gmail.com.

6. You must send us your video information by May 5, 2010. Winners will be announced May 7, 2010.

We will choose three winners from the submitted entries to receive one of several prizes. Prizes include an autographed New Moon poster, an autographed Wolf Girl tote bag, and an autographed Volturi tote bag. The first place winner will get their first pick of the prizes. The second place winner will get to chose next. The third place winner will win the item not chosen by the first or second place winner. There is only one prize item per winning submission.

Remember to have fun with this and make the most of your two and a half minutes. We look forward to seeing what you all come up with!

If you have any questions, put them in the comments because chances are someone else has the same question and that will make it easier to answer.

Pumpkin Carving Winners

We had over 50 entries on this. It was so difficult to narrow it down, but in the end we came up with out three winners who get the coffee mug or tote bag of their choosing from our CafePress Store.

There were three categories: Best Book Cover(s), Best Movie Related, and Most Unique.

Best Book Cover(s)

Winner Christie who managed to get all four Twilight Saga covers on one pumpkin without the pumpkin falling apart!

Best Movie Related

We had so many entries with Rob, Kristen and Taylor. We even had a Billy Burke as Charlie Swan entry. In the end, this one had the clearest image and cleanest lines.

Most original

We loved that someone quoted one of our favorite lines on from the book with the lion and lamb graphic.

We also want to recognize the runners-up in each category. We’ll be sending something to you too!

Best Movie based runner up

By Audra

Best book cover(s) runner up

Most original runner up

Twilight Clue Contest

The Peace, Love, and Twilight site is sponsoring a Twilight Clue contest.

It’s a really fun game of whodunnit. Check out their site for the official rules. We are one of the participating sites.

Don’t Forget Cheer and Baseball Throw Contests

We are running a series of contests along with the folks over at Twilight Fan Trips. As many of you know, this group has a variety of trips that they run in the Portland and Forks areas. This year they have an extra special event that benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation. They have several actors from the film participating in a baseball game.

So here is a rundown on the contests:

Throw the first ball for the Cast/Crew Vampire Baseball game!

Date of promotion: 5/28/09-6/28/09


Order your tickets from one of the two links below depending on what package you want (if you have already ordered tickets someone will be contacting you to ask what site you saw the event advertised on. Be sure and mention us and you’ll be entered.)

Day – http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/0F0042ADDD425CFD?camefrom=CFC_PGEPARK_TWILIGHTLEXICON

VIP – http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/0F0042ADE9D561C3?camefrom=CFC_PGEPARK_TWILIGHTLEXICON

The fansite (of course we are hoping that it is us) that has the most people who buy their tickets and note their fansite’s promotional code will have the opportunity to randomly select (from our ticket purchasers) the fan who will get to throw the first ball for the Cast/Crew Vampire Baseball game.

Vampire Baseball Cheer Promotion

Date: Organize and submit your cheer by 6/25/09. Do your cheer with your fans 7/4/09!


This is a fun promotion to have the Lexicon be a part of the event itself and to get fans get together and cheer at the stadium – showing their solidarity for the Lex!

Our site will be given 2 minutes during the Vampire Baseball event where we can do a customized cheer. So we figured the only way to have people from all over the place learn a cheer it would have to be something they could immediately be comfortable with. And then the light sparked. The Lexicon cheer will be to the tune of Take Me Out To The Ballgame. Be as creative as you want! Just rearrage the classic lyrics to include mentions of the Lex and Twilight. Fans attending the game can then belt out the Lex cheer. we’ll provide a discussion area in the forums so if people want to talk about dressing on theme, bringing support posters, whatever, they can get organized.

At the appointed time, the Lex fans fans get to do their cheer at the game! FanTrips.Travel will work with us to rope off areas for our fans to sit together during the game.

Best part is you don’t need to attend to participate in this contest. Whoever provides the winning lyrics will get the item of their choosing from the Lexicon Cafepress shop. Send the lyrics to TwilightLexiconContest@gmail.com
