Hyrule Herald’s 2015 Pumpkin Carving Contest!


October 26th-31st

How it works:

Each contestant submits their work as photo(s) to us via email by October 30th. We’ll post one of your pictures of your carving work on Facebook and the site on October 30th at 5 pm. Simply “like” and invite others to look at and like your picture of your work on our Facebook page before October 31st. Voting ends October 31st at 3pm where we will screen shot the pictures and compare like amounts.  The one with the most Facebook likes wins!

On Halloween night, we announce the winner of the $25 eshop card prize!


1. Contestant must be in at least one submitted photograph with the carving to verify authenticity
2. Only one pumpkin can be submitted UNLESS the contestant decided to do a series where all the pumpkins fit together (for example, two Twinrova Witch pumpkins cause, you know, their twins)
3. Carvings from years previous will not count. It must be this year. To verify, add a slip of paper with the name of your favorite character at the bottom of the presentation.
4. Must be Legend of Zelda themed.

The more creative and original the better! Don’t be afraid of presentation. Add costume, scenery, and mood to your photos of your work. If you need inspiration, check out our pumpkin carving stencils!

To enter your work, send your pictures to danyhawke@gmail.com.

Good luck, have fun, and get ready to get messy!

    Going to pass due to my lack of carving skills. Can’t wait to see the entries though 🙂
