Hey gearheads! Get your carving knives ready, it's our first-annual pumpkin carving contest. We want to see your skills in two categories: Artist and Gear.

Ideas forArtistpumpkins can include things like portraits or silhouettes of artists, album covers or band logos.
Gearpumpkins can include carvings of guitars, amps, pedals or any other type of gear, specific parts of guitars, company logos or anything else you can think of.

The contest is also open to any guitar-related pumpkins that do not fall into those major categories (we'd love to see a PG cover!).

To enter, simply send a photo of your pumpkin (under 4MB) torebecca@premierguitar.com. You can enter as many pumpkins as you'd like, but please only include one pumpkin in each photo.

One winner will be chosen in each category, and the winners' pumpkins will be featured on PremierGuitar.com and in our weekly newsletter,Backstage Pass.
