UNLEASH YOUR YELLOW AS "THE SIMPSONS" CELEBRATE THE "BEST. 20 YEARS. EVER."

Year-Long 20th Anniversary Celebration Kicks Off With Poster Contest

The 1990s introduced us to rollerblading, grunge music, slap bracelets and a yellow animated family from Springfield that took America by storm. Some fads come and go, but 20 years later THE SIMPSONS remains timeless.

Beginning January 14, 2009, FOX and THE SIMPSONS will launch the "Best. 20 Years. Ever.," a global celebration of THE SIMPSONS culminating one year later, January 14, 2010, on the 20th anniversary of the series' debut. The "Best. 20 Years. Ever." will incorporate domestic and global efforts honoring all things Simpsons.

To kick off the celebration, FOX invites fans to "Unleash Your Yellow" and celebrate television's favorite family. The year-long campaign begins tomorrow with THE SIMPSONS Poster Contest and will follow with multiple fan-based initiatives through January 2010.

Beginning tomorrow, THE SIMPSONS Poster Contest encourages fans to get creative and discover THE SIMPSONS in their everyday life. Whether it's a cob of corn that reminds them of Marge, a billowing cloud that looks like Homer or a picket fence that resembles the spikes of Bart's hair, inspiration can be found anywhere! Fans over 18 will have an opportunity to design and submit posters using their original art and/or supplied assets found online at thesimpsons.com. The deadline for poster submissions is 11:59 PM ET on March 4, 2009.

The Top 10 finalist entries, selected by FOX and THE SIMPSONS producers, will be posted on thesimpsons.com. The winning submission will be revealed on the website April 5, and the creator will receive a trip to Los Angeles to attend THE SIMPSONS 21st season premiere party and tickets to "The Simpsons Ride" at Universal Studios Hollywood. Additionally, the winning artwork may be incorporated into the series' fall 2009 marketing campaign.

For official rules and more information, visit thesimpsons.com.

Now the longest-running comedy in television history, THE SIMPSONS immediately struck a chord with viewers across the country as it poked fun of itself and everything in its wake. With its subversive humor and delightful wit, THE SIMPSONS has made an indelible imprint on American pop culture and has become one of television's most iconic families.

THE SIMPSONS is a Gracie Films Production in association with 20th Century Fox Television. James L. Brooks, Matt Groening and Al Jean are the executive producers. Film Roman is the animation house.
