From Tim Burton, the acclaimed director of Alice In Wonderland, comes the astounding film that captured the hearts of fans and critics all across the world. Inspired by Roald Dahl's beloved children's book, Burton, Denise Di Novi and Director Henry Selick combine a fascinating mix of live-action, stop-motion animation and computer-generated special effects to create a world beyond your imagination.

After the daring rescue of a spider, a young boy named James gains possession of some magic crocodile tongues. When James spills them in the garden, out sprouts an enormous peach! Climbing inside, he meets an astonishing cast of characters and embarks on a magical odyssey full of thrills and adventure. Voiced by an all-star cast, including legendary actors Richard Dreyfuss, Susan Sarandon, Simon Callow and Jane Leeves, and featuring the celebrated music of Randy Newman, this classic story is delicious entertainment for the whole family!

In "James and the Giant Peach," James is looking for an escape – from his troubles, from the sadness surrounding his parents' untimely death, from his horrid aunts. With the help of a magical oversized peach and some newfound friends, James was able to sail across the sea and reach the faraway land he'd always dreamt of. For this contest, put yourself in James' shoes and show us where you go to escape the real world! Illustrate the magical landscape of your daydreams and let us see where your imagination takes you. Adventures this big don't grow on trees, so let your imagination soar to Giant-Peach proportions!

The links in the contest entries are leading to the wrong article. I had to type this article's url into the search box to find it. You might want to check this.

Sorry, then, maybe it was a glitch with just my computer or browser or something. What happened was when I clicked the judging in progress button it led me to a totally unrelated news article. This happened with my entry and others I checked as well. I just checked again though, and it's working fine now. Sorry it took me so long to reply.

They'll probably send you a note. It generally takes them about a week to judge, so the semi-finalists should be up on the 15th, or at least around. (:

I wouldn't know for sure because I've never been chosen. =P

I don't know but the rules say:

"2. SELECTION OF WINNERS: Potential winners will be selected on or about August 13, 2010 from all eligible entries. Twenty-five (25) semi-finalists will be selected by full-time deviantART Staff on the basis of Originality, Creative Interpretation of the Theme, and Technical Skill. The semi-finalists will be posted in advance of final judging."

So on or around this Friday we should know, hopefully :)
