3rd Annual ITS Tactical Pumpkin Carving Contest

by October 11, 2012 10/11/12

Back for it’s third year, the ITS Tactical Pumpkin Carving Contest is all about getting into the Halloween spirit and carving up a tactical pumpkin.

Submitting a photo of your carved pumpkin will get you entered to win some awesome prizes, including ITS Gift Certificates to our store and even the yet to be released MSCS (Modular Skeletonized Carrier System!)

Be sure to check out the rules and resources listed below to see how you can get your entry in. Be sure to also check out all the great winners we had last year and the year before!

Resources

There’s a great resource out there we like to visit this time of year called  zombiepumpkins.com  where you’ll find some cool patterns and carving tips. You can also download the ITS Tactical Pumpkin Carving Template from a while back if you’d like to carve that up.  Here’s the .PDF pattern to download!

It’s a fairly simple pattern that you can use to shave off the outer skin of the pumpkin, or impress us and find another way to carve the logo into a pumpkin. You definitely get bonus points if your pumpkin has our logo somewhere in it!

Rules and Deadline

There’s really not much in terms of rules for this contest other than getting your photos in by midnight (central time) on October 3oth; Winners will be announced on Halloween Day!

To submit your entry, simply email us at least an 800px x 600px image of your carved pumpkin. You can even take a photo with your camera phone and send that in!

By submitting a photo of your tactical pumpkin, you agree that the image is good to use here on ITS when we announce the winners and can be added to our  ITS Reader Photos Flickr Group.

Happy Haunting, we can’t wait to see your entry!

So does an entry put you into a raffle style drawing, or are the winners based off of "best in show" for pumpkin carving talent?
