"Epicly Fail"?? It is a pumpkin carving contest! You cannot fail, .... Unless you carve a watermelon.

I agree. I guess and epic failure would involve accidentally knocking it off the window sill from 20 stories up.

Not necessarily. All depends on who it lands on

I've got some ideas that I'm going to have to play with...

You can use basically any line drawing as a pattern. If you want to use one of your own photo's just convert it to a line drawing and voila, a unique pattern! Using a pattern is a must for a good carving, especially if you are a bad artist, like me!

I think to weed out the dishonest, it should be required to have your name written on a peice of paper next to your pumpkin for proof its yours!

I have a question about the 1 photo for 1 pumpkin rule

What about a pumpkin that has carvings all the way around? Or do we need to limit our carving to a front aspect only? Maybe 1 pumpkin but photos of various aspects?

This is actually a very good question which needs to be answered.
