Welcome to the sixth Clans Contest of 2012, Pumpkin Party!
My name is Digi, and I'll be your spooktacular Tour Guide for this festive, clan wide pumpkin carving contest!
All entries must be original pictures of pumpkins carved by clans members. Each entry must consist of two pictures, one of the picture for the contest entry, (which will be used in judging), and one picture containing a Magic the Gathering card for authenticity verification.* Each clans member may submit one entry in the form of a private message. The PMs will consist of the required pictures, and title of their entry. Participating clans members will have until November 3, 2012 by 12:00AM EST to get their entries to me.
Once the entries have all been posted in the contest thread, the judging round will commence. Each clan will determine their top three favorite contest entries for each of the following categories.
Best Overall, which entry did your clan think was the coolest all around entry of the contest? Most Original, which entry do your clan think was most unique? Funniest, which entry made your clan cackle the loudest? Scariest, which entry chilled your clan's bones the most? Most Clan Focused, which entry most fits the clan the entry's submitter belongs to?
Those top three entries picked from each clan's judging results in each category will be awarded the following points toward the placing clan's overall contest score:
1st: 4 Points
2nd: 2 Points
3rd: 1 Point.
No judging clan may submit multiple ranked entries from any one clan in any category.
The Crafter's like both asheroth's and ajacobic's entry for most scariest. Since they are only allowed to vote for one clan per category, they must choose which of [Dimir]s submissions they like the best when sending me the judge rankings, as well as entries from two other, different clans.
Categories will be decided by each clan themselves, and entries may be voted in multiple categories. Judging results are to be sent to myself by clan representatives before November 10, 2012 at 12:00AM EST.
No clan may vote on a submission by one of their own.
The winner of the contest will be the clan with the highest, overall contest score. Second and third place will follow in the same manner.
That wraps it it for the moment on this end, says the Mummy:)
For those that our curious, Wikipedia has a nice little article on the history of carving pumpkins. You can check it out by clicking this cool icon:
If anyone has any questions, feel free to send me a PM and I will answer them ASAP.
Have fun, Ghoul Luck and Happy Halloween!
*it is acceptable for an entry to consist of one picture, so long as the picture contains Magic card(s) and is the intended picture for display and judging.
Since time is such a factor with this, a sign up period was not imposed, (or even brought up). When a clans member sends me a contest entry, their clan will be entered in the contest.
The enthusiasm makes me happy, though:)
Ooooooooh. I thought that meant something else, but it makes way more sense than I previously thought, lol.
Thanks a bunch!
Also, thanks to all the participants!
They were all awesome pumpkins.
Believe it or not, the Lightning Bolt has scared me in my life more than any of the pumpkins images have combined x30. I thought it was a shewin for sure for scariest!
The Lightning bolt and the Flamingo waterwelon were my favorites.
The watermelon usage was great, and the pink behind the image was absolutly perfect for a flamingo.
Good job everyone, and thanks again:)
