Halolz First Annual Haloween Pumpkin Carving Contest

Okay, I know Halloween is right around the corner… but I still wanted to do this contest just to kind of get it rolling!

So what is it all about? Halolz First Annual Haloween Pumpkin Carving Contest is, as it sounds, a jack-o-lantern carving contest! The theme? Anything video game related! Carve something awesome in a pumpkin that has something to do with video games and you can win! Entries will be judged on originality, creativity, and juiciness (not really).

How to enter:
Step 1: Make a rad video game themed jack-o-lantern
Step 2: Carve a small visible “H” somewhere on the pumpkin, or make a sign that says “Halolz.com” to show in the photo (this is to avoid cheating)
Step 3: Take a digital photo (lights on or off or both) and send it to haloween@halolz.com
Step 4: All elegible entries must be recieved by 5pm EST on Oct 31st

First Place
• (1) Ninja-Bot T-Shirt of Your Choice
• (1) Accordion Hero T-Shirt
• (1) This Is My Axe T-Shirt
• (1) BLOW ME T-Shirt
• (1) Halolz 16″x 20″ Poster
• (5) Wolf Vinyl Stickers

Second Place
• (1) Ninja-Bot T-Shirt of Your Choice
• (1) Accordion Hero T-Shirt

• (5) Wolf Vinyl Stickers

Third Place

Honorable Mentions

I’ll start posting entries as they start coming in… and the official winners will be determined on Halloween night. If you have any questions just post them in the comments! Good luck!

[Update!] I’ve already gotten quite a few entries… and I don’t really want to single any out, so I’m going to post entries starting on Halloween day!

    Aw dang. I only got one pumpkin and I was gonna carve the Team Gurren logo on it.
    Would that count? I’m pretty sure there’s a Gurren Lagann video game…

  3. Shawn Handyside on October 28th, 2008 2:12 pm

    That would be awesome… but I kinda have to stick to the video game theme. You should send it in anyway and maybe you could get an honorable mention!

    I take it that the VG Cats stencils are out of bounds? :P

  5. B-mac on October 28th, 2008 3:17 pm

    I’d enter just for the chance of getting Wolf vinyl stickers! xD
    But I won’t.

  6. Shawn Handyside on October 28th, 2008 3:24 pm

    You could do one of the VGCats stencils… but I doubt you’d win anything. :P

    You spelt Halloween wrong multiple times. You spelt it haloween (with one L). So my question is: Is the email address right? (since you put it as haloween@halolz.com)

  8. Chaos Trigger 5 on October 28th, 2008 4:00 pm

    I just realized you might have spelt it that way for a reason. Like the HALO in halolz so HALOween. I get it. Clever. You might want to change it if it is the wrong address and also all the mispellings.

  9. Exploderizer on October 28th, 2008 4:18 pm

    Damn it! Already used mine to carry other even smaller pumpkins to throw at people!
    Also, anyone else notice the lack of bad spelling now?

  10. [chemical.kirby] on October 28th, 2008 5:35 pm

    I sent you a note over DeviantArt with my submission.

    I don’t find it to be 1st Place material. I just thought I make a little treat for HALOLZ.
