Digitally Carve a Pumpkin for our Annual Halloween Contest

Originally published at:
Our Halloween events are a bit of a tradition at Envato! Over the years we’ve had fancy dress contests, a staff-in-spooky-masks-identification contest, and our popular Little Monsters contest from last year. This year, we’d like you to digitally carve a pumpkin!

What We’re Looking For

We want you to use your creativity to design and “digitally carve” a pumpkin and post it in our forums. Use the provided template to create your pumpkin. Each illustration can be fun, colorful, dark or haunting. But please keep in mind that we’re a PG-13 rated site so nothing too scary or gruesome – we don’t want to give anyone nightmares!

How to Enter

  1. Download the PSD template
  2. Color / draw / design however you want, inside the template
  3. Export/post your full-size entry (1200px x 1000px image in JPG format) right here in the forums. Drag and drop your image into your forum post to upload/post.
  4. You can enter as many times as you want but get your entries in by Midnight / 12am between Monday, November 2, 2015 and Tuesday, November 3, 2015 (AEDT)
Easy peasy!


  • Winner: Halloween Badge (only given out once a year) + Envato T-shirt
  • Runner-up: Envato T-shirt

Judging & Voting

  • You, our community, get to decide who wins! Simply vote for the entries you like by clicking the heart below your favorite entry/entries in the official contest thread.
  • The winner will be the entry with the most community votes by the end of the event on Midnight / 12am between Monday, November 2, 2015 and Tuesday, November 3, 2015 (AEDT).
  • You may vote for as many images as you like.
  • Please do not vote for your own entries and please do not use multiple accounts to vote. Any suspicious voting/votes will be removed and will not be counted.

Good luck to all digital pumpkin carvers and Happy Halloween!

Umm, yeah … about that, Sorry … but we’re not as thrilled as you are for carving a “Halloween pumpkin” since This is taking place
Check the replies, nobody is thrilled … swear.


Yeah, everybody’s too busy being really disappointed with Envato to be participating in a silly contest.


Hi @onioneye, all our contests are optional opportunities as per always, no-one is forced to participate. We appreciate there are always other things happening in and around Envato, our numerous contests and events are always an extra opportunity for those that wish to participate. Thanks for understanding. :thumbsup:


Sorry we are taking it out on you Scott, but I guess this just shows how frustrated and unsatisfied authors have become with Envato.


@onioneye No offense taken at all. :thumbsup: We’ve got separate, dedicated threads for our community to discuss the US Author/Affiliate/Service Provider changes, please keep this thread on topic for those that wish to enter. Thanks again for understanding. :smile:

I was first :sunglasses:
