Pumpkin Carving Contest 2018! [Deadline October 31st, 2018] [Winners Announced!] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote




Piratey pumpkin time again!

Deadline
11:59:59 game time October 31st, 2018

Entry thread
ENTRY THREAD HERE

Prizes
1st prize: choice between orange/black parrot, orange octopus or orange monkey
2nd prize: choice of standard sleeping pet (pig, piglet, tortoise or turtle - no chocolate coloured sleeping pets).
3rd prize: an (adjective) Pumpkinseed sloop painted orange and black
Honorable mentions will receive other prizes such as orange or black trinkets, clothes or furniture. Other prizes may be added depending on participation.

In addition to the main judging, it has become traditional for OMs to take a look through the thread and award eggs or dolls to entries that particularly please them!

What do you have to do?
* Obtain a real pumpkin. If pumpkins are not available where you live, you can try any type of gourd, squash, etc.
* Create a Puzzle Pirates design for your pumpkin.
* Carve the design onto your pumpkin.
* Create a card (or slip of paper) that includes your pirate name, ocean and the year (2018).
* Take at least two "creation" pictures while you are carving your pumpkin, to prove it's your own work. Include a card with your pirate's name, ocean and the year in EACH photo (no photoshopping).
* Take at least one lit and one unlit photo of your pumpkin, again including your pirate's name and ocean on a card to show it's your own handiwork.
* Host your images on Imgur . You don't need to make an account--just upload them
* Submit your entry with a minimum of four photos per entry (two creation, one lit, and one unlit) in the entry thread in the Mariner's Muse along with your pirate's name and ocean.
* Double check your entry to make sure you have four working links to each entry, and that it follows the template below.

Entry Template:
Pirate Name:
Ocean:
Creation Link:
Creation Link:
Unlit Link:
Lit Link:

Judging Criteria
Judging will be based upon the creativity and cleverness of design, the quality and detail of carving, and the overall effect of the lit pumpkin. Remember, the LIT pumpkin is the photo being used for judging. Take care with regard to shadows, flash, focus, and detail.

Other rules
* Only one entry per player
* Only one pumpkin per carving
* Carvings must be original and your own, and may not designs submitted to other contests
* You will not get any credit for decorating or dressing your pumpkin in ways other than carving - and if it detracts from the carving itself, then you could even lose marks.
*Feel free to use or modify commercial patterns, but you are unlikely to score highly on creativity if you do so!

No doubt I have missed out information, so if you're unsure on anything, please ask here, and I'll do my best to respond.

Don't delay, start carving right away!

Edit: jumped into the tardis and made an edit...
Edit: Due to the forum issues we experienced a few days ago, the deadline has been extended to October 31 11:59 PM Game Time

So that's why pumpkins always seem bigger on the inside!

I scoop and scoop and there's somehow still more goo.

The staining properties of pumpkin juice should give us all renewed sympathy for house elves.

Replying to a question I received via DM:

 
Can I use a colored lightbulb to light up the inside of my pumpkin?

This is not specifically forbidden in the rules. However, you will not get any credit for fancy light colors - and if it detracts from the carving itself, then you could even lose marks.

Can't really believe it, thank you so much.

I had nothing but envy when I looked towards the other entries, admiration to of course some beautiful carvings.

Hopefully my winning sees him lay off you Clotho, but I think he's still gonna get Hera :(

Sent petition in game, thank you so much again!

This year, my choice is Shuckle of Obsidian ; the creepy Admiral Finius is the stuff of terror and it will be a long time before I'll be able to sleep soundly again. Well done, Shuckle! I'll be placing a Hera Doll trinket in yer inventory soon!
