Hey all, welcome to the 10th year of this DH competition! Hope to see lots of wonderful carvings celebrating this great series.
Entering the contest is super easy -- just carve an Avatar-themed pumpkin (or any other carve-able veggie like a watermelon or squash), take a photo, then send it in!
Everyone can enter regardless of age or country, and you have until Sunday, November 2nd to send in your carving photo. Anything Avatar: The Last Airbender or Legend of Korra related is welcome, so long as it is viewable for all ages. Each person can submit up to two carvings, and submitting as a group is fine too.
Voting will begin on Monday, November 3rd, and you will be able to do so here. Everyone can vote, so if you're entering, be sure to tell your friends! Voting will stay open for two weeks, after which the top 15 entries will continue to be on display, and prizes for the Top 4 + Mod's Choice will be handed out.
Prizes for this year include an Earth Kingdom scarf (photo) and a Four Elements slouchy hat of your choice (photo) made by Reynalyn, and small Aang (photo) and Korra (photo) crochet keychains made by me!
If anyone would like to help provide additional prizes (be it custom fanart, crafts, etc), please email/message me for more info.
Interested? Then get to it! Entries can be emailed to me, or you can send it via PM.
Yeah, I'm a little worried on that front too. =/ I may extend the deadline by a week if there's not enough entries by the end of the weekend. I actually have time to carve a pumpkin this year, so I'll be helping to fill in the numbers as well, and hopefully double as advertisement. (Should I make a Twitter account for the contest? I usually just depend on Tumblr, DeviantART, and search engine results for advertising.)
We're up to 16 entries now (link!), and with new prizes from Reynalyn -- one of her Four Elements slouchy hats (photo) and an Earth Kingdom scarf (photo)! Lots of wonderful carvings this year, and voting will start tomorrow. [/img]
And no probs, ILZ! I had forgotten how time consuming this carving business is when you've got other stuff going on. I think I'll be saving the Twitter idea for the summer so it'll be all ready for next year's contest instead of trying to rush it now.
