Pumpkin Carving 2016 Contest

Planning to carve a pumpkin? Carve an original character from here on NG and post your picture in this thread to join our contest! You can also post your pumpkin in the Art Portal with the "pumpkin2016" tag.

The TOP THREE pumpkins will receive honorary Supporter Status, which you can gift to a friend if you're already a supporter.

Don't have a pumpkin? We're giving supporter status to each of our THREE FAVORITES in Carve 'n Share, as well.

  • Carve n' Share
    Carve n' Share by Evil-Dog

Deadline for all entries is November 1st.

Check out the 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008 and 2007 winners but don't copy them.

If you're looking for inspiration from this past year, check out these:

Creep Jam - as seen in the current site skin by @RedMinus.
Robot Jam - as featured in this previous skin by @Shamfooo.
Mascot Jam
Loop Jam

Or maybe just browse the best original comedy from the past year. I'm sure characters from Define Intervention or Captain Tardigrade would make delightful pumpkins.

Want to make art, music, animation or a game to celebrate Halloween? One week remains to join our Halloween Spooktacular and potentially snag $100.

Sentry Knight Art Jam Winners

Thank you everyone who participated! Everyone on this list is receiving a Sentry Knight Steam key.

Trackers Charity Song

@Hania has announced the latest song from her band, Trackers. All first month profits will be going to the Kids Cancer Project so go have a listen and consider buying a copy.

This Week on Newgrounds

@Noodle has released This Week on Newgrounds #10. This show is a great way to catch up on things you may have missed here on NG.

Supporters

Our current site skin and Halloween prizes come thanks to our Supporters! We have big plans for bigger supporter numbers and we need everyone possible to get onboard.

Supporter status is $2.99 a month (or $25 per year) and you get a lot of perks, as you can see here. It would be inspiring and extremely helpful to end 2016 with 2,000 active supporters. Ultimately we'll be gunning for 10,000 and beyond. The potential future for NG and all the opportunities it would offer is too great to not fight for, especially as traditional media continues to consolidate.


This is the game JohnnyUtah, Spazkid and I have been working on.

Thanks for the plug again Tom!

I always love the Pumpkin carving contest :D
It has been a few years since I was able to take part - so I am hoping to make something for 2016!

PS. I am really loving deathink's Monster emoticons. I have been using them on every post!

GAH!

Why worship the Devil so much if Newgrounds was supposed to be independent? I'll shut up if I have to, but still, all the demons and evil only brings disgrace and misery. Normal people don't have their fingers like this. Look at your own hands.

I didn't realize our site skin was so satanic.

Satan fuels our creativity. It doesn't just magically come from nowhere; this is why there is a human sacrifice every Pico Day.

Congratulations to all the winners! Cordial consolations to all the losers.

That pumpkin game is still way too much fun to mess with. Pumpkin carving isn't really a thing here, the only real Halloween traditions are just underaged drinking and unemployment.

I always knew the tingly feeling I got while I browsed wasn't just the side effects of not taking my meds.

So it's that time of the year! No real pumpkins over here but there's always Carve N Share!

Can't remember seeing there was a Spooktacular going on this year earlier. Too much going on lately. Good going-on's though, ongoing! Also Congrats to the winners! Looking forward to whatever this year hellspawns.

Can't recall if we ever made that variation for the current smaller logo... Was there one last year?

Well, I guess a little trip to the internet archive would answer your question. Anyways, i'm sure you can think of something.
