I am very happy to announce the winners of the 2012 pumpkin carving contest here at ExtremePumpkins.com. Each year I accept submissions from October 1st or so until the following October 1st. I choose my favorites from all of the submissions, usually focusing on creative ideas and pure silliness. I post the winners and send them the world's strangest prize packages. People have described the prizes they were given as many things: "Awesome!", "Gross!" or "Awesomely Gross". So, this season, carve a pumpkin, take a picture, and send it in. I'd love to see it.
