Carving Jack-o’-lanterns for the Halloween season? Port City Daily is celebrating with a pumpkin carving contest!

There’s still one more day left so submit photos of your ghoulish gourds. The deadline for contest submissions is tonight at midnight for both the 15 and under and the over 15 contest. The reader-submitted voting begins Friday morning on our Facebook page.

Port City Daily, along with its sister stations, 93.7 and 106.3 FM The Dude and 98.3 FM The Penguin, want to show off your squash sculptures with recognition and prizes. Two great prizes will go to the pumpkins that get the most reader submitted votes.

To submit your Jack-o’-lantern:

Send via email to PCD@localvoicemedia.com

Tag us on Instagram and Twitter, using the hashtag #PCDpumpkins 

Submit them through our Facebook page

The best carvings in two age categories — over 15 years old and, 15 years old and under — will be put to our readers. The best pumpkins in the 15 and under category will win a family four pack to Battle House Tactical Laser Tag. The best pumpkin in the over 15 category will win a $200 gift certificate to The Seasoned Gourmet.

Send photos of your pumpkin carvings, and include your name, age, and city/town of residence, which will be published with your photos. You may submit multiple pumpkin photos, but only the two prizes described will be issued.

Winners may also be asked to bring their pumpkins to our studios — if possible — so that we may take promotional photos. Any questions on eligibility or rules? Email us at PCD@localvoicemedia.com. The deadline to submit your photos is midnight on Thursday, Oct. 27.
