The Hungarian Tolkien Society is hosting its ninth Tolkien Mailing Competition. This year, however, the “Quendi” category is open to Tolkien fans from around the world to win the honour of being crowned the winner of the HTS’s competition.
The information on their website states:
The Hungarian Tolkien Society proudly announces the launching of the “Quendi” category of the Tolkien Mailing Competition. It will be in English, open to any individual participant, but recommended for those between 15 and 35. In the course of the Competition you will face different challenges like quizzes, riddles and creative tasks. The five rounds of the competition will last from October to March. The application deadline is 12 of October, 2014.
Participation in the Quendi category requires a thorough knowledge of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion and, perhaps, The Children of Húrin. Some questions (riddles, quizzes, etc.) will refer to other works by Tolkien, but you will have about four weeks for each round, that is, plenty of time to look up in the books everything you might need.
The deadline for registration is the 12th October 2014. To participate in the competition visit the Hungarian Tolkien Society’s website.
