some great entries

Someone has had some practice. It looks like both of you guys have put a lot of time into those and they look great. I have only carved about 3 pumpkins in my life, but I don't think a disco ball will work for this. Nice job to both of you and I would like to make a suggestion. I think it would up the cool factor if you had some fog coming out of them. (Dry ice and Hot water, wear gloves)

Hmmmmmm, looks like there will have to be some rules regarding validity.....
not your pumpkin

Maybe the photo of the pumpkin should be taken beside a current calendar or newspaper to show that it was carved recently.

If you put it by a calander they would just take several pics with a different callender because u can already by a 2009 callender or u can make one on microsoft publisher and some other software. They should get your name and address of the winners and there pictures and if they win again the next year check and see if he won in past years and the address is so he cant just make a new username and say thats not me. but with tha adress you have to have it shipped and then they would know that you cheated.
