The contest is from October 1st - October 31st 2010

Participation is open to all artists, young and old. Junk your pumpkin any way you want. The process is easy! Find a pumpkin (any size), gather some junk (found objects) and start junkin'! It can have a theme, be a character or just a piece of abstract art. Your choice*, but nothing too gruesome, gory. Think "merry not scary." Here's an example and here are entries from past years: 2007 | 2008 | 2009.

*We retain the right to censor our content so no nudity, vulgarity, language, etc. (anything that you wouldn't want your child exposed to will not be allowed).

There are two age groups to enter under: "Big Kids" 13 years of age and up and "Little Kids" ages 0-13 years. After October 31st, our judge will choose the winners and be notified via email. Winners will be announced November 2, 2010.
