    Take a non-blurry photo (You have to retake this one anyway), also don't forget to write your username on a piece of paper next to it! That is the only way they can verify you did this.
    • Your pumpkin carving photo must include a piece of paper with your forum username and a reference to this competition and/or GBAtemp on it

    Looks very nice actually! :)

    If you submit a pumpkin, but its not chosen, will you be put into the raffle for the remaining two? (just wondering, either way im submitting my pumpkin tonight, gotta get the lighting right)

    Yeah most of the carving "knives" sold for it in the UK these last few years are junk -- they look a bit like those things some people stick in corn on the cob and are about as blunt. Personally I usually use a plasterboard jab saw/pad saw, though it is a bit large if you do not have a large pumpkin or want a really tight radius so a small hacksaw/junior hack saw blade might do for you as well. I did bust out the grinder and sharpen said junk knives for a giggle and it improved things, nowhere near the level of the good knives that they were replacing but a definite improvement. This year I got some wood carving knives from the local 99p shop which I am going to give a spin but I am mainly here to say those pumpkin carving knives/kits ( http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/81z+Sj0nPML._SL1398_.jpg for example) I see in most places are junk. Other than that you will probably figure out what it is about fairly soon after starting -- pumpkin is a not a tough material so if you have a long point you have carved and have it act as a cantilever beam then you will probably snap it with relative ease, fortunately a gap toothed pumpkin is often the aesthetic people are going for.

    Right now it is one or the other ( http://gbatemp.net/threads/hallowee...ing-win-a-sc-dstwo.399925/page-4#post-5738025 ), however the former does not have many entries and you can influence it with skill. The other is 2/170 odds at least right now and there are still possibly 11 days to go.

    Do remember to put your username in the picture, or another of the same pumpkin you want to get the best shot you can and another to qualify the entry.

    As much as I would love to carve a pumpkin, I do not have the luxury of time or skill. So raffle it is. At least then, I have a fighting chance LOL
