PENINSULA DAILY NEWS is now holding two online photo contests — to find the best carved pumpkins (we began that contest earlier) and best Halloween costumes on the North Olympic Peninsula.

You can submit a photo of your carved pumpkin to the Pumpkin Carving Contest — or submit a photo of your scariest, silliest, cutest or most creative costume to the Halloween Costume Contest.

Contests are free to enter, and residents of Clallam County or Jefferson County can enter photos in both.

And there are prizes to be won!

To enter, go to and look for the split orange button in the middle of the page (below "Hot Links") marked "Pumpkin-Carving Contest" and "Costume Contest."

Pick the contest you'd like to enter (or enter both!), then click on the “Submission” tab and follow the instructions for registering and submitting your photos.

All entries must be submitted on the web — sorry, no entries by mail, or in person.

Deadline to enter both contests is 5 p.m. Nov. 1 for pumpkin-carving and 12 noon Nov. 2 for costumes.

To view entries as they have been approved and posted, click on either of the contest boxes on the website and then the “View Entries” tab.

Winners will be chosen by the public in online voting.

Voting is also free. You can vote up to five times per day during the voting period.

The three entries in each contest that receive the most online votes will win prizes courtesy of our contests' sooooooper sponsors listed on the contest pages.

Questions or problems posting a photo?
