Update: Contest is closed, no more entries allowed. Results will be up soon!
It's been four long years since TeamLiquid last brought you a Pumpkin Carving contest. Go on, click the link. We'll be sitting here waiting for you to get back. Finished? Aren't those some fine carvings? Anyway. Since then TeamLiquid has brought you many other contests and events like the TSL and the Cake Making Contest - both of which produced some amazing results.
With TL's art skills at an all time high, the staff felt it was appropriate to dig up the Pumpkin Carving contest for another year - with hopes that it become an annual event on the TL calender. So how is this going to go down?
- Carve your Pumpkin!
- Take a picture of it. Just to ensure authenticity, write your TL.net username on a piece of paper and include it in the shot. (And if you think it's somehow distracting from the magnificence of your work of art, take a couple pics - one with, and one without the paper.)
- Upload your image somewhere. I'd suggest using something quick & easy like ImageShack or TinyPic.
- Post your pic in this thread by 00:00 KST on November the 4th
Few other notes:
- TL staff will decide who wins during the following week.
- More than one submission per person is allowed.
- We need to be able to authenticate your carving! So a "making of" picture and/or a picture with a TL sign would be great
- You can work on this with you girlfriend/wife if you like (pics are appreciated)
- Subject matter? Anything goes, but be warned that we'll be heavily biased towards Starcraft, Progaming, or Teamliquid themed entries.
So what are you competing for? The winner of the pumpkin contest will be immortalized in the articles section of TL and will receive the Pumpkin Carving Trophy for 2009 which will sit nicely next to your ID for eternity
. Plus you get some street cred on TL - which is always a bonus if you plan on sticking around.
Stuck for inspiration?
Whether you just need to brush up on the basics, or take Carving 101, the intarweb's full of helpful websites. Apparently jack-o-lanterns are even an art form for some people. And if you're feeling particularly courageous, you could try roasting the seeds or even make a pie. If all else fails check out the last batch of winners or let a google image search ignite your creative flame. This site is pretty cool - and if you decide you want to carve a watermelon I suppose we'll let that fly too.
Happy Carving & GL HF
P.S. you better get cracking since lagmaster and his girlfriend have already started carving theirs!
