PANEL OF EXPERTS

The Cult of the Great Pumpkin is pleased and honored to have 3 Halloween Experts acting as our judges this year, people who directly inspired this website and everything it stands for. They will choose a winner that they feel best exemplifies the concept and spirit of The Great Pumpkin, making sure that artistic merit and strong concepts are rewarded as much as artists with friends who are willing to vote. They are, in no particular order:

  • Lesley Bannatyne is the author of multiple books on the folklore, history and cultural impact of Halloween. Visit her website at http://iskullhalloween.com/
  • Eric “Toxic Toons” Pigors is a prolific dark artist/illustrator/designer whose love of Halloween is evident in everything he does. Visit his website at http://www.toxictoons.com/
  • Rot is the mysterious mastermind behind PumpkinRot.com, one of the longest-running and coolest Halloween websites on the web. If you aren’t already following the What’s Brewing blog, you’re missing out, all year long.

The Cult of the Great Pumpkin reserves the right to amend the information on this page, if we think of a way to make the contest better, or realize we said something stupid.

      As it says right above the poll: “YOU MUST BE A REGISTERED USER AND LOGGED IN TO VOTE!” That’s registered to this website, not the commenting system. It’s the only way to make sure each person gets one vote.

    Im working on a piece for this contest now, turning out pretty spooky! Is this actually based on the skill of the artist, or just who can get more friends to log on? I’d hate to spend 20 hours on a work just to have a kids crayon scribble beat me on votes :(
