Love the posts but guys…please read the rules if you want to be eligible for prizes. Most people aren’t following them. BTC must be incorporated in some way. Being a btc forum it’s kinda the whole point. I created a second contest to try and make this doable for anyone in the world who can have US items sent to them. But whether in contest one or two, need to be btc related please.  Awesome stuff tho !

JanEmil - nice one, it's a happy theme! what did you use for the eyes?

xSlyy - great result, a lot going on there. Did you use Onions too? the image is a bit dark
to make out all the details.

xsyren - welcome to the forum and what an entrance you make, that is a fantastic result, love
the theme.

I think the last 3 are definitely BTC themed

JanEmil - nice one, it's a happy theme! what did you use for the eyes?

That is 2 Bitcoins made from hard plastic. I bought them on Facebook some time back.
They are very rare and cost 1 million $ each but you have to bet big to win.

did you just buy this pumpkin?? I hope I can see the fine work of your hand, rather than just looking at the little scribbles on your pumpkin from a marker.

Here is my entry for this formidable contest: a rare photography of a pumpkin getting orange-pilled, its eyes glowing with Satoshi Nakamoto’s wisdom, just seconds before falling into the Bitcoin rabbit hole…



My pumpkin is reading the ‘Book of Satoshi’, by Phil Champagne, while drinking coffee (to go through a long night of BTC learning) from a LN Trustchain Torchbearers mug.
I hope you’ll like it (and that I am in the theme). I had a lot of fun making it! First time I carve a pumpkin. Nice and relaxing experience Grin

This has been my favourite.
There are some very good entries. I have seen very successful works both physically and in photoshop. If I had any smerit, I would like to send them to all.
Pumpkin is not very common here and as a culture we don't celebrate Halloween either. That's why I can't participate in this competition. We see how talented people there are on the forum. Thanks to ChiBitCTy for bringing up such a contest idea.

Voting time seems short to me. I think it would be better if voting was done for a week instead of 3 days. This is how I suggest. Good luck to all contestants.

This guy is titled "My Precious..."
Damn that looks crazy good and it looks like we have a pro around here. Grin Anyway, kudos for the effort!

Few years ago I tried something relatively similar with bitcoin sign, but doing it from the inside of the pumpkin and it was a major pain in the ass to do it properly without making a hole in the pumpkin so in the end I gave up.

Might as well just send it to the winning contestant directly, no need to send multiple transactions unless there's a chance you won't be active around early November. If so just let me know. Thanks again for putting up the prize BTC

Sorry For the late reply. I didn't notice you already replied to me here.
It's okay. I am active here. I will be active at the end of October as well. I will keep my eyes on the contest.
As you suggested, I will send the prize to the contest winner directly. Good luck, everyone. We are excited to see some great curving.

Thank you to everyone for the kind words! This took about four hours of time and a lot of patience. I am excited to see what else comes out of this contest and wish everyone the best of luck. The AI works have been incredible so far.

Guys, no AI allowed. The first AI post I believe was altered which is different (and looks amazing), but AI is not your work. I was tying to be nice by adding the second contest but for those of you with complaints ..I owe you nothing, I have zero obligations. I was just trying to do something fun for the community. As you can seen in my OP, I carved a BTC pumpkin years back and always thought this would be fun.  

If you want to win, carve a pumpkin with bitcoin features. I believe for voting on the contest I will select 3-5 well established/well regarded forum members ( people like LoyceV , (who is “Sweden” so not sure they’ll be interested in it, but that’s just an example.

The results will be the results. Please no complaints. I’m giving stuff away for free, spending my time and efforts during a time where I’m insanely busy, so please understand this.   Life isn’t always fair, I didn’t have to include contest 2 but I wanted to get more people involved. Please read the rules and be mindful of my expectations.

I tried to present Bitcoin Pumpkin Day. But because I have no advanced technology here, I may not be able to present my post well. But I have tried my best but please pray for me in future so that I can do better.

I tried to present Bitcoin Pumpkin Day. But because I have no advanced technology here, I may not be able to present my post well. But I have tried my best but please pray for me in future so that I can do better.

I am going to pray that within the next less than two weekstm (I.e. soontm) you get ur selfie within possession of a knife, and use said knife to cut some holes into that pumpkin-like appearing object - at least one of such holes creating direct or indirect communications of some kind of a bitcoin-related theme, and then afterwards you take a picture of your results and upload such results on this thread within the next almost two weeks (before October 31.. the pumpkin carving deadline - which also happens to be the 14th anniversary of Satoshi's white paper - if anyone would like that as a possible tie-in pumpkin carving theme). .That's my prayer for you at this moment..

...and part of the reason that I am so seemingly demanding within my stated prayer is that you already have demonstrated that you have acquired a pumpkin-like piece of vegetable within your possession (which is way more than a majority of the making of progress towards halloween-bitcoin funzies - and furthermore, you have also demonstrated that you know how to upload pictures to this thread.. with BTC drawings contained therein.. so you seem to know the theme of this thread.

The ONLY thing that you may well be missing is some kind of a pumpking puncturing tool, which can be so simple as a knife (which is a pretty common instrument in all parts of the world) or some other instrument (even a sharp rock might do) that might allow you to poke some holes in that pre-carved bitcoin inspired pumpkin-looking object.     Shocked

Happy Bitcoin Pumpkins celebration 🎉🥳🥳🥳

quote for visible

did you just buy this pumpkin?? I hope I can see the fine work of your hand, rather than just looking at the little scribbles on your pumpkin from a marker.
He probably doesn't have the same gourd carving skills as I do. But it was because he wanted to participate in the celebration here so much that he crossed out his pumpkin like that.
At least he tried.

I tried to present Bitcoin Pumpkin Day. But because I have no advanced technology here, I may not be able to present my post well. But I have tried my best but please pray for me in future so that I can do better.

I am going to pray that you get a knife, and use such knife to cut some holes into that pumpkin-like object - at least one of such holes creating direct or indirect communications of some kind of a bitcoin theme, and then afterwards you take a picture of your results and upload such results on this thread within the next almost two weeks. .that's my prayer for you at this moment..

...and part of the reason that I am so demanding within my prayer is that you already have demonstrated that you have a pumpkin-like piece of vegetable within your possession (which is way more than a majority of the making of progress towards halloween-bitcoin funzies - and you know how to upload pictures to this thread.. with BTC drawings contained therein.

The ONLY thing that you might be missing would be a knife or some other instrument that might allow you to poke some holes in that pre-carved bitcoin inspired pumpkin-looking object.     Shocked

Let us (royal?) pray for further progress within the next almost two weeks..   Wink

Jay, I'd love to participate in it, to be frank but, who the heck's got an idea where to get that? What I see frequently, Every time I go shopping is water melon but they're too soft or watery to get a nice effect during carving.....
I'm not even aware we've got some species of pumpkin as large as that? Hehe, does this brownish stuff count as a pumpkin....save my ass! 😹

This is an awesome contest! Loving some of the entries! Maybe do all pumpkins in one and then generated computer art and other halloween for the other?

Yes.. Depending on your region.. You may well have some challenges in terms of local products that you might have available and how much searching that you might have to do if you were to go to some kind of a speciality produce location - if you were to have one in your location.. and so in that regard, some locations do have more availability of pumpkins in their stores and with their farmer's markets this time of the year..  -

I would speculate that members would appreciate anything that might be close to a substitute (and even a painting of orange) of some level of demonstration that you had come up with some real world creativity that gets in the ballpark of the thread's theme... .. Like even some kind of a sweet potato or a squash could serve a a substitute.. and of course, it the vegetable is small, then it would have to contain more surgical kinds of carvings.. and not everyone would be capable to carry out those kinds of artistry.. even though historically, we have seen members come up with some interesting improvisations - even though it could be that those improvisations might not end up winning the contest - but who knows?  It's like a question of presentation, and I have been told that I surely don't have a very good track record in the area of something like food presentation.. but each of us have our real world limitations and our talents.. I suppose.  

One good thing is that you still have almost two weeks... ..  .. and even though ChiBitCTy said October 31, he did not give the exact deadline.. maybe we are talking about midnight UTC?  There might be a need to make the exact contest ending time clear (unless I missed that detail?).

Edited: By the way, I do believe that something like a watermelon could still serve as a pumpkin substitute (if you cannot find anything else that is closer to a pumpkin).. because the rind of a watermelon might be somewhat similar to the rind a pumpkin.. even though the rind of a watermelon might lose its composure a lot more quickly than the rind of a pumpkin.. .. but with either one, you are likely emptying the inside.. and maybe the pumpkin's rind is thicker than the rind of a watermelon but you could still carve a watermelon if you cannot find anything else.. it is at least bigger than some other vegetables (or is Watermelon a fruit?)

For sure, I am not really any kind of a fruit/vegetable expert beyond having had eaten both a watermelon and a pumpkin and even cut into the rinds of each of them in the past.

Edited 2: The more I think about it.  You are probably right Sandra.  The carving of a watermelon would be more difficult and challenging than a pumpkin because the rind is quite a  bit thinner than the rind of a pumpkin.. including the meat of the pumpkin does seem to help to hold it up after the insides of the pumpkin have been hollowed out.. so a watermelon might not be able to either support itself after the inside is emptied, and even if you could get through the whole process of carving a watermelon (like a pumpkin - and making it appear orange) you would be challenged the whole time of the rind of the watermelon collapsing or breaking while you are carving it.. ..so if you were to go down such a path, take your picture quickly before such art project falls apart or put some kinds of support beams within the watermelon to keep it from collapsing upon itself... ..

but I still think carving a watermelon would be easier than carving an ice sculpture, but maybe it depends upon what kinds of real world artistic and craftsmanship skills that you might happen to have?
