Carved Pumpkin Competition Rules

 

 

Pumpkins must be carved prior to arrival at the hall

 

Participants must provide their own light however a Pumpkin with no light may still be entered .No candles

 

If a light is being used the bottom of entered pumpkins must be removed so that the pumpkin can be placed on top of an LED light or battery powered light . No Candles will be accepted Cutting the top of a pumpkin off causes the top lid to shrink and decay very quickly so the lid falls inside. Pumpkins with the top cut off will be disqualified.

 

The carved pumpkins must be able to stand without any support or back drop needed.

 

Inappropriate pumpkins will be disqualified.

 

Participants may use carving kits or commercial stencils, however, handmade stencils or free hand carvings will earn more creativity points in the judging.

 

Pumpkins are not to be painted or otherwise decorated. Only carved pumpkins will be entered into the contest.

 

There are two catergories per age group

 

A prize will be awarded for the winner of each catergory in each age group

 

Children up to 12 years – Most creative pumpkin and silliest pumpkin

 

Teens 13 to 16 years – Most creative pumpkin and creapiest pumpkin

 

Adult 17 years and older – Most creative pumpkin and best use of the entire pumpkin

 

All entries must be labeled with the following information (on an index card or alike taped to the back of the pumpkin) name, address, phone number, category and please note if a commercial stencil was used, Cut off time for Pumpkins being entered and placed on the tables in the main hall is 1.45pm
