Pumpkin Carving Contest


Hey guys! For Spooktober, I thought it would be fun to host a contest that wasn't focused on writing, but was more geared towards the spirit of Halloween itself! I was thinking about something fun I could do and the first thing that came to mind is something that is always fun to do, and it's such a classic Halloween activity that I thought, why not host a contest centered around it? Thus, the Pumpkin Carving Contest was born!

For this contest, you are to submit a photo you have taken of the pumpkin that you have carved this year. If you are unable to purchase a pumpkin or cannot carve one, then you may submit a drawing of a carved pumpkin you have drawn. :)

A few rules...

1. You may only submit one entry, but you can change your entry leading up to the deadline if you choose to, by editing your post before the thread is locked.
2. You may only submit a photograph you have taken of a pumpkin carved by you during this month only. No premade entries, please.
3. If you are going to submit a drawing, then your drawing must be in color and it must include your username signed somewhere visible on the drawing.
4. Please post your entry below before October 31st at midnight. You must include in your post both the image itself in img tags and the img wrapped in img and code tags. For example:

[img]link[ /img]
[code][img]link[ /img][ /code]

minus the spaces, of course. After the deadline passes, the staff will vote on the winners and then the winners will be announced. :)

As for the prizes, there will be a 2,000 point prize for 1st place, 1,000 for 2nd place, and 500 for 3rd place. :)

Any questions, comments, or concerns? Feel free to reply or PM me! Remember, you have until October 31st at midnight for all timezones, so have fun and good luck :)

No entries yet? I know we have lots of artsy and creative folks around!

If I have a chance to carve an actual pumpkin this weekend I may swap out the entry, until then this is what I've got! :)

OK I FINALLY GOT THIS TOGETHER and even though there's only one submission per person, I'm going to take the time to show off the three pumpkins I carved because... uhhH becuz I can ok deal w it

I carved these two pumpkins a week before you made the thread, so it would technically be a pre-made entry, but still look at its SPOOPYNESS:

It's half spooky, half cute. So spoopy. Obviously.

I totally didn't spend hours gutting these bad boys, nope.

So here is the pumpkin I'm submitting that I carved:
