2010 Pumpkin Contest: The Hollowing

As a part of a longstanding Blizzard Entertainment tradition, we are pleased to announce our eighth annual pumpkin-carving contest. We’re putting out a call to all talented carvers to sharpen their spoons and hollow out a fantastic, frightening, or just plain funny pumpkin inspired by the Warcraft, StarCraft, or Diablo game universes.

We will be accepting pumpkin contest entries between 11:00 a.m. PDT on October 15 and 11:59 p.m. PDT on October 27. Those who submit the most outstanding photos of their work will have their pictures proudly displayed on our community websites. In addition, the crafters of the five most interesting, original, and well-carved pumpkin designs will each be recognized for their merits with a 64 GB iPad™!

Pumpkin Submission Tips

  • The winning entries will display high levels of originality, craftsmanship, and possibly humor.
  • Your pumpkin must be lit up by a candle or other light source in your photo entry. You can include another photo of the pumpkin unlit if you wish.
  • Pumpkins must be related to the Warcraft, StarCraft, or Diablo game universes.
  • Try to take the best picture possible, as picture quality helps make a good impression on the judges.
  • Make sure you tell us what the pumpkin is supposed to be in the caption, just in case it's not clear.
