Thank you too all those who entered ACG's DELETED SCENE Lit Contest which could have been in Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas!!  We loved all the entries however after careful debate we have decided the winners of this contest.  Please note that winners were based on creativity and not quality of work.


:star: Poem Winner is :iconburningglory: with: :star:
The Pumpkin KingThe stars were glimmering
The moon was wailing
The king was
s m i l i n g
When the king smiled
something
somewhere
somehow
was
s c r e a m i n g
He stood, the king, he stood
hands held behind his back
He stood, the king, he stood
Staring at the wailing moon
Jack, the Pumpkin King
he stood, listening
as he heard the melody
of the silence
Jack-The Pumpkin King
he smiled
he smiled and he, the great Pumpkin King,
would not frown.
-

Congratulations BurningGlory

:star: Song Winner is :iconbookbrink: with: :star:
King of the Jack-o'-LanternsCatch-ing copse and clever dead ends
Fuse his feet like taciturn friends –
He is the one of the masquerade name,
Feeding the dark like a sinister fla-ame.
King of the night and everything dark,
Tainting the night like a manifest mark
This is the time of alchemists' dream --
This is the eve of Hallo-we-en!
Jack! Jack-o'-La-antern's vine,
Climbs the stairway o-of your spine --
Chokes by chance the blossoming Yule,
keeps his cabalistic ru-ule ...
Jack! Jack-o'-Lantern King!
Keeps Allhallows on a stri-ing.
Jack! Jack -- ad hoc Noel!
Rules the realm a lonesome spell!
Jack! Jack, the ghost of bone --
Heed your own endemic throne!

Congratulations bookbrink

You can write a new song, poem, or scene (in script, play dialog, story form etc) based on The Nightmare Before Christmas. Some work that could've been in the movie or based on the characters in the movie. :nod:

Actually, you're incorrect about one thing - Jack can easily fall in love with someone else, but it would take time. ANYONE is better than Sally, it's fact. The ending of the original movie was terrible, in my opinion.

But anyways, I'll enter and I may have to change a few things. Just a bit, because Jack and Sally aren't meant to be. It's obvious. :|

Please do not rewrite any part of the original film.
Perhaps this contest isn't for you since you have such strong opinions.
Anything that goes against our rules (ie changing the original film) will have your entry declined and/or removed.

Good Luck.

It doesn't make us incorrect. It's just a difference of opinions.

Fine, but you still shouldn't say that. I know lots of people who hate Sally and would love to take her out. I personally like her as an aunt to Jack's kids.

MeganLawler94 Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2012  Professional Writer
That is the stipulation of the contest. You are not aloud to change what has already been written by the movie. The line about Sally is just an example of what you cannot change. Things that are directly different from the movie - a new love for someone other than Sally, Jack going to St. Patrick's Day Town instead of Christmas Town, etc. - will not be accepted as an entry.

I've just read over the entry. I was under the impression that you were going to get rid of the love for Sally all-together, which would be a violation of the terms of the contest. That was my mistake, and I do apologize for that. No need to change your entry.

About the lyrics category, can we write lyrics from a song in the NBC movie?

If yes, can we base them on any of the tracks featured in its soundtrack? Can we also write different and original lyrics for a NBC song that already has them?
Reply
:iconmeganlawler94:
MeganLawler94 Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2012  Professional Writer
They have to be original lyrics to a new song. No basing it off an existing song or writing different words to the originals. It all has to be new.

Similar to a poem, then? Or the lyrics just need to be written down in a special format?

Lyrics are a form a poetry.

Read up on how lyrics are written and see if there is any format needed. Research is always the best thing to do.

For the song lyrics part can you write lyrics to an already made song (kinda like a parody)?
Reply

Not a parody. They have to be original lyrics to a song that could have been featured in NBC, just like the songs in NBC were all original for the movie.

Yes.

Sadley we can't host a 1st place for each catagory because people generally don't want to donate 3 prizes of equal value. So we feel sadley it'd be best to have 1st and 2nd at this time although we may concider adding runners up.

Thoughts?

The new solution works very well, the idea of separating winners by category solves the issue of places. Very nice idea! :)
