On Your Marks, Get Set, CARVE!

Posted by on Fri, October 22nd, 2010 at 11:00 am

The weekend before Halloween is coming up, which means that a lot of people are probably getting ready to pick out their pumpkins for carving. That also means it’s a great time to bring the family together and create your entry in the Swagbucks Pumpkin Carving Contest for a chance to win 1000-1500 Swag Bucks. The deadline for entries is Tuesday, October 26th at 11:59pm PDT, so it’s definitely time to get a move on.

Here’s how you enter:
1. Get a pumpkin
2. Make a Swagbucks inspired carving – could be our Logo, me or TSGal or good ol’ Bux – or something even more creative. Can it have ghosts and ghouls and Frankensteins in it? Sure, as long as you visually relate them to Swagbucks in some way.
3. Take a picture of your creation and email it to Pumpkins(AT) along with your Swagbucks Username. You can pose with your pumpkin or not – up to you.
4. We’ve posted valid submissions on our Flickr page, where you can comment on which photos you like. I think we’ve already got some very strong entrants…
5. We’ll select 5 finalists and put them in the blog on October 27th for you to vote on; on November 1st we’ll announce the winner of the 1000 Swag Buck first place prize.
I know, I said 1500 – so how do you earn that extra 500? Easy – purchase the Pumpkin Carving Stencil Set in the Swag Store’s Halloween section – if you’ve purchased that AND you win, you get an extra 500 Swag Bucks.
Just a few Don’ts for you:
DON’T send in pics of non-SB related carvings – while I’m sure they’re cool, they’re not really what this contest is about and they won’t be accepted as valid submissions.
DON’T digitally manipulate or photoshop your images – if you submit those kinds of pics, as creative as they are, we won’t accept them – we’re looking for people to get in there and do some carving. We’ve already had to reject a few of those. This also applies to painted pumpkins – we’re looking for the carved variety.
