It's the PPCC

It's that time of year again for the annual Patterson Pumpkin Carving Contest. For the special 5th Anniversary this year we decided to change things up a bit. We are opening up the contest to all friends and family, in hopes of course that someone will try and throw down Jason's title of Pumpkin King for four years running. So all of you that have been voting each year (and for Jason I might add), we want you to get your hands dirty and add your own potential champion pumpkin to the running.

Let's recap the previous contestants...

Intimidated? Naturally... But we hope you are up for the challenge.

Following are the official rules:

  1. Each entry must be submitted by midnight, Thursday, October 23 (to
  2. Include a picture and the name of your pumpkin. Oh yes, it needs a name. Optional: can include a brief statement on why your pumpkin will win.
  3. The polls will be open the week of October 24-October 30, in which the creator of each pumpkin will remain anonymous.
  4. Winner will be announced Halloween morning and claim the PPCC title.

Before you embark on your masterpiece, remember the judging criteria:

  1. creativity/originality
  2. difficulty
  3. best skill/fewest mistakes
  4. best use of lighting
  5. one you would least want to meet in a dark alley
  6. one with most sex appeal
  7. overall favorite pumpkin

Happy carving, everyone!

  1. How exciting. I have only carved a pumpkin once in my life. I am not good at all so I probably won't enter. Chance and my thing is the costumes when it comes to Halloween. This years is going to be a doozy.
