DID YOU CARVE a great pumpkin this Halloween?

Have a photo of it? Send it to us — and you may win a prize.

PENINSULA DAILY NEWS' annual contest to find the best carved jack-o-lantern on the North Olympic Peninsula ends at 5 p.m. TODAY.

It's one of two photo contests at — the other contest is for the best Halloween costume in Jefferson and Clallam counties.

Both contests are free to enter, but it's restricted to residents of Clallam County or Jefferson County.

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

Get your camera out now and share that perfect pic of your jack-o-lantern — or your creative, spooky or inspiring Halloween costume — with the world.

Deadlines for your photos: 5 p.m. TODAY for pumpkin-carving — and 12 noon on Friday, 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' spooktacular sponsors listed on the contest pages.
