After much soul-searching and deep meditation, we are finally ready to announce the winners of the October 2019 Master of the Month Pumpkin Carving Contest!
It was a tough decision, as we absolutely loved every entry we received. However, we finally chose to pronounce Eric Rhodes the winner of our TEAM CHOICE award! Though the decision was difficult, we were blown away by Eric's terrific carving of Kaneki! Superb job, Eric, and major congratulations on your victory and $50 cash coupon!
Next we drew from the valid entries to randomly choose a second winner for a $50 cash coupon! For this contest, participants could submit as many entries as they wanted (though they could only win once). The lucky winner of our random drawing is …. (drumroll)…. Joe Jen, with his fantastic carving of Hyakkimaru using only the most basic of caveman tools (or perhaps it was his wife's measuring spoons and a screwdriver? - either way, not easy)! Congratulations, Joe!
As a special "thank you" to all those with qualifying entries (and because everyone really brought their A-game to this contest and made this super hard for us to decide on a winner), we decided to reward everyone who participated with a little prize! GREAT JOB!!
We actually had a few more "non-qualifying" entries also, and we enjoyed those immensely as well. A huge "thank you" to everyone who participated and submitted an amazing pumpkin! We had a wonderful time watching these entries come in!
Keep on collecting. WE ARE THE COLLECTORS!
