Blizzard has posted news about their annual pumpkin carving contest. The top five best entries score an iPad, but we encourage you to enter all the same. Here’s the official post.
We will be accepting pumpkin contest entries between 11:00 a.m. PDT on October 15 and 11:59 p.m. PDT on October 27. Those who submit the most outstanding photos of their work will have their pictures proudly displayed on our community websites. In addition, the crafters of the five most interesting, original, and well-carved pumpkin designs will each be recognized for their merits with a 64 GB iPad!
If you want to view some past pumpkin-carving contest winners, you can see them here:

- 2009 winners.
Virtually all of the winners in recent years have been WoW or SC-themed pumpkins, so it would be great if some of you guys could help turn that tide. Diablo’s imagery seems more deserving of scary recreation into gourds and besides, Diablo jack ‘o lanterns were popular before WoW even existed! We gave prizes to one in our Halloween contest in 1999, years before WoW and long before Blizzard thought to start their own pumpkin contest. Amusingly, those same pictures were submitted to Blizzard’s contest in 2007. And got an honorable mention!
