TCN 4th Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest: Results

First, I would like to thank everyone who entered this year’s contest. I continue to do this every year to see the creative fun things you all create! Unfortunately, I never got around to carving one myself, so I live vicariously through you guys!

Let’s take a look at this year’s winners:

A.W. Alex + Kermit

D.A. Dalia’s Pumpkin rides off into the night

D.A.2 Dalia’s adorable little girl’s first pumpkin!

J.S. John’s Bewitching Cat

m.m.c. Mandee and Matt went Batty!

T.T. Tien and Johnathan’s Evil Skull!

Thanks again to all those who entered. And since there were five gift card winners and five entries (minus Dalia’s daughter), everyone wins!

It’s October! Do you know what that means?

Oh yes, you’ve guessed it! It’s time for TheCoffeeNinja’s FOURTH Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest.

My goodness! It’s already been four years? Time sure has flown by. I’ve managed to *almost* master some delicious Vegan Pumpkin Soft Cookies. They’re my new favorite thing about fall. :)

But alas, it’s October and time to bust out those pumpkins and show us what you’ve got!

The Rules:

1.) Pick your pumpkin – Any size, shape, color, or even material (yes, it doesn’t have to be a real pumpkin if you get grossed out by the guts or just want something that will last after it’s been decorated). ** Computer generated/ altered graphics will not be accepted. **
2.) Get to carving! Creativity counts in this contest, so don’t be scared to test the realms of possibilities!
3.) Please incorporate your name, twitter handle, website, etc. or take a picture of you with your pumpkin. I only ask this because it’s far too easy to find pictures of carved pumpkins online.
4.) Submit all entries by Sunday, October 27th by 9pm CDT to be considered for the contest. All entries will be incorporated into a article on http://www.thecoffeeninja.com posted on Thursday, October 31st.
*** Be sure to include your name and valid contact info in your submission so I can notify you if you won.

You can email your submissions to contests@thecoffeeninja.com

    Prizes

The prize options have changed this year. Since it’s just too hard to pick “The Best” pumpkin, all entries will have their name thrown into a bag (or cup, or hat, or bowl, or skull?) and the first five names picked will receive a $10 Starbucks Gift Card. This assures that everyone has an equal chance and to make this more of a FUN event instead of competitive.

TheCoffeeNinja’s Third Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest!

Fall is finally here. Have you had your Pumpkin Spice Latte Yet?

The onset of fall brings several things: football, baseball playoffs, cooler weather, hoodies, and lots of candy. But most importantly – TheCoffeeNinja’s Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest!

The Rules are pretty simple:

1.) Pick your pumpkin – Any size, shape, color, or even material (yes, it doesn’t have to be a real pumpkin if you get grossed out by the seedy guts). Computer generated graphics will not be accepted.
2.) Get to carving! Creativity counts in this contest, so really express yourself!
3.) Please incorporate your name, twitter handle, website, etc. or take a picture of you with your pumpkin. I only ask this because it’s far too easy to find pictures of carved pumpkins online, and nobody likes a cheater anyway.
4.) Submit all entries by Sunday, October 28th by 9pm CDT to be considered for the contest. All entries will be incorporated into a article on http://www.thecoffeeninja.com posted on Wednesday, October 31st.
