Blizzard has launched their annual pumpkin carving contest, and though it’s being judged by their WoW team, entries can use imagery from the Diablo or Starcraft universes as well. Their contest page links to winners from past years, and while most of them are WoW, there are a couple of nice Diablo-themed pieces as well. Here’s the official contest info:
The top five winning submissions to the Blizzard Pumpkin Carving Contest will each win their very own 32 GB iPod touch. A special thanks to Apple for these prizes, and good luck to all contestants!
- Pumpkin Submission Tips
- The winning entries will display high levels of originality, craftsmanship, and possibly humor.
- Your pumpkin must be lit up by a candle or other light source in your photo entry. You can show another photo of the pumpkin unlit if you wish.
- Pumpkins must be related to World of Warcraft or another Blizzard Entertainment title.
- Try to take the best picture possible, as picture quality helps make a good impression on the judges.
- Make sure you tell us what the pumpkin is supposed to be in the caption, just in case it’s not clear.
Their contest page has links to galleries of past year’s winners, which I combed for some Diablo-themed entries. Amusingly, one of Blizzard’s 2007 winners was submitted to us back at Diabloii.net in 1999! You can see that one below. A winner from last year is thumbnailed above.
