To celebrate yet another 10/13 under our belt, we want to hear why you love The X-Files so much!

Follow our twitter feed at @XFilesNews and send us a tweet telling us exactly that. Don't forget to include the hashtag #ItsAlways1013 on it. Entries will be counted until Midnight PST.

You can enter as many times as you want. One very lucky X-Phile will win one item of very cool X-Files Merchandise.

We can't wait to hear from you!

When we received word from La-La Land Records that we could come up with a contest to give away five Autographed copies of the new 4-CD boxset for "The X-Files: Volume Two", we had no idea we would end up with over FIVE HUNDRED entries! We gotta give it to you, X-Philes...You have very diverse taste!

We're so thankful that Annabeth Gish, Frank Spotnitz and Mark Snow came to the rescue, because they were the perfect mix of judges!


So without further delay... here are the winners!

Sandra Hanan from Skokie, IL with "Agnus Dei" by Samuel Barder

Grégory Fremaux from Beauvais, France with "The Host of Seraphim" by Dead Can Dance

Manuela Dresler from Berlin, Germany with "Kayleigh's Funeral" by Michael Suby

Lauralea Sharra from Trevose, PA with "Saving Josh" by Trevor Morris

Mary Aldugom from Chicago, IL with "To Build a Home" by The Cinematic Orchestra


Winners will be contacted by XFN staff on Wednesday, September 11th to confirm your details. Once again, thank you so much to La-La Land Records for their generosity to us and the fans. And to those of you that unfortunatelly did not get picked, remember that "The X-Files: Volume Two" goes on sale at 12pm on Sept. 10th at their website.

And the results are in... After careful consideration by our busy but amazingly graceful guest judge, actress Annabeth Gish, the winner of the 2012 XFN Pumpking Carving Contest is Amy, for her rendition of Navajo wise man, Albert Hosteen.

Amy will be receiving a care package from XFN with a couple of Fight The Future action figures and a few other surprises!

Thanks to everyone that participated this year, it was indeed a very varied collection of works, lots of talent! You can check them out here.

Stay tuned for more giveaways and contest coming soon.







Some of you may remember the dominating performance that X-Files fans gave in Ology's "Most Far Out Show" contest. And a lucky few of you may have even won the awesome shirts from that round.

But for those who don't know what happened, think of the Fight the Future building as the competition and the Philes as the bombmakers. So with that reputation behind us, we really have to come out strong in this next contest. 

Ology is hosting a "Battle of the Best" competition and The X-Files ology is competing in this round!  So what do you need to know? First off, there is a prize! Check out that shirt photo. You know you want one.

Never heard of this website before? Well is a site with differernt "ologies" for different interests: books, TV Shows, people, etc. You join ologies and post threads and discuss them--it's like a giant message board combined with a social network. 

Now to the competition:

First off, join The X-Files ology here! That right there gets us 100 points. Each new member helps, so invite everyone you can think of and get them to join the XF ology, even if they can't post often, it will still help!

We get 5 points for each new post in the ology. So post videos, photos, start conversations--everything and anything works. Then make sure to comment because we get 10 points for each one. Ology has a no spam rule, but as long as our posts are relevant to The X-Files, we won't have any issues. 

So how do you get your hands on the X-Files t-shirt? First off, The X-Files has to win! So let's band together and get it done. After we win, the 15 most active fans in the ology will receive a shirt, and we can customize it however we like, based on the template.

If you have any other questions, check the contest rules here, or ask @ContestOlogy on twitter. Now go join the X-Files X-Files ology, spread the word about the contest, and in the words of Kim Manners, "Kick it in the ass!"


Alright guys, it's time to rewatch those Scully autopsy scenes because you're going to need to brush up on your carving skills.

The leaves are changing, there's a nip in the air, and that means it's time for the 3rd Annual XFN Pumpkin Carving Contest. 

So what are the rules?

  • No surprise here, but your pumpkin must be X-Files themed
  • You can submit a pumpkin that wasn't created for the contest, but not one you've submitted in years prior
  • Send a photo of your pumpkin to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by October 30th at 6pm PT
  • You can only submit one pumpkin per person

This year's special guest judge is the always lovely Annabeth Gish. And as with any contest, there will be a prize. What is it? Well the Truth is out there for now, but it will be announced in the coming weeks, and we promise that it will be awesome.

So snap on the latex and get slicing and dicing, Philes!
