NOTICE: The annual X-Day event will be on hiatus indefinitely, because I simply don't have the time to attend to it, and I also doubt that anyone else has the ability to take over in my place. Hopefully we'll resume in a little while, a few months perhaps, but I really don't know. When we do resume, we will start with a catch-up event that covers works for several years; if it occurs in 2006, it will cover 2004 and 2005, with a follow-up 2006-only event would happen in January 2007. Meanwhile, consider any other event dates on this web site to be invalid. My apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
X-Day is an annual month of celebration for all fans of the Marvel Comics' "X-Men" and related books, or related works like the X-Men movies or TV series. The "X-Men" was first published in 1963 and the first X-Day was in 1996. Now celebrated during January 1st - 31st, X-Day commemorates the anniversary of the publishing of the first X-Book, The X-Men. During X-Day, X-Fans demonstrate their enjoyment of the X-Books to the general public by submitting comic inspired art, fiction, costumes, other media, and web-sites; they can optionally compete for awards as well.
X-Day is an event for people of all skill levels. Both amateurs and professionals are welcome and encouraged to participate. No one is too good or too poorly skilled. X-Day is all about having fun and sharing our creative potential. Don't miss out because you think you or your creations aren't good enough; they are good enough.
See the Details and Rules.
Registration opens on January 1st. Use the contact form now if you wish to be sent a reminder message by email.

Participants will be able to leave text feedback comments for any submission (competing or not) any time between January 1st and 31st; those will be shown when the vote results are shown. All text feedback will appear signed by the writer, but votes for favorites are anonymous.
