Here are the winners, from third to first place:
3rd Place/Prize is a tie between Josh Meseck and Miranda Doerfler, who each created scary scenes which wrapped around the sphere...Prizes to both!
2nd Place/Prize goes to Elizabeth Davis not only for the creature with the big teeth and hands under the stairs but also the pumpkin carved with a crowd of zombies. So a Prize going to Elizabeth!
And the winner is...
1st Place/Prize Natalie Tomaszewski - whose Nosferatu blew my mind. The imagery is sophisticated and the technique shows a mastery of the pumpkin arts.
Everyone knows I am a soft touch. I just have a hard time picking the best. So these are also pumkin artworks, costumes...etc that Robert and I really liked. Last year I sent little gifts off to the Honorable mentioned folks. If I can this year too, I will...but temper your expectations, things are CRAAZZZYYY around the Englund household...so the Honorable Mentions might have to accept just my personal thanks this year...we'll see. Here goes:
Krilova Ekaterina for those creepy paintings
Joshua Dean for fun images and excellent use of negative space,
Dragonroar Ruthie for her complex mis-en-scene
Amber Buttrum's anime mash-up.
Aelia Petro inadvertently with her pumpkin contest entry.
Sara Childers inadvertantly wins the Costume Contest...which we were'nt holding, but it's definately on for next year!!!!
Thank you ALL for participating. Everyone who entered will get a signed postcard. But please send me your snail mail addresses through the website's contact form... Just put CONTEST in the subject line.

HOW ROBERT SELECTED THE WINNERS:
Unlike other contests, where Rob, Nancy and I collaboratively choose winners, this year Robert chose the winners himself. He based his decisions on what pumpkins looked unique as well as captured the spirit of Halloween - as is the case with our 1st place winner Miranda's series of pumpkins.
Of course judging is completely subjective...and Robert thanks EVERYONE for your efforts. He loves all of the work and wishes everyone could win.
