Carver Registration

Come be a part of America's newest live pumpkin carving competition, Battle of the Jack O’Lanterns! We’re looking for a small and select group of only 100 talented carvers and sculptors to slice, dice, and create gourd-geous works of art to be put on display this October! Don’t let your neighbors be the only ones to see your skills this Halloween – take a stab at this competition and show your work off to thousands of visitors at our event!

We're not messing around with small pumpkins, either. We’ll be supplying each carver (or carving team) with a monstrous 100+ pound pumpkin to hack away at!

Our panel of Halloween experts will be on-hand to judge the best carves in a number of categories. Winners will crowned and financial prizes totaling $10,000 will be awarded to artists and to charities of their choice. (more details coming soon).

Battle of the Jack O'Lanterns will take place in October 2018 at locations in New York and California. Exact dates, times, locations to be announced soon!
