This years Halloween contest was a smashing ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) success! Players were given a plain old boring generic pumpkin and tasked with turning it into a festive autumn masterpiece. As usual they were up for the challenge!

In first place is LittleRabbitPaw with a creative take not just on how a pumpkin looks but also the magnificent transformation it undergoes once the season is past.

The depth and detail of the decay effect won over the heart of most of the judges. In the words of one judge; "I mean like seriously, the moldy pumpkin is gonna turn some heads and makes everyone wonder why the trash delivery guy has yet to bother picking it up after the candy-slough holiday."

In a very close second place is Altair with a haunted minecart ride inside a pumpkin!

In third place is FidgetyAtom! Wandering by and one may miss this one, because its carved to be viewed from top down!

The runners up barely missed placing in the top 3 due to their overall high quality and varied styles.

Brocrafter14's pumpkin has a bit of extra flair with its hat tipped to the side.

The new Halloween contest went live a few days ago in game. If you have not stopped by lately you might have missed it.

This year we are trying a new style. 

Pumpkin carving!

The rules are simple. Carve a pumpkin!

If you do not like the 'default' pumpkin base provided, feel free to transform it into something more beautiful!

Signs will be provided at the contest spawn to change your gamemode from Creative to Survival and back again so you can make use of the speed boost of Efficiency V shears on this wool! 

In addition, there is a new way to get a plot in the current contest!

Right clicking on any [Open Claim] sign will automatically assign you to that plot. 

No need to wait for a staff member to give you a plot!

For convenience there are beacons placed at every '4 corners' where the signs are located. If you are having trouble locating an open claim fly over to a beacon.

If you would like the pumpkin removed from your plot entirely you can make a /ticket there requesting the removal of the pumpkin or if you dont feel like waiting just use Eff 5 shears.

The contest ends at Midnight on Halloween (PST) so don't wait long to get started!

Dragon drops Elytra!

From now on when you kill the dragon (aka 'fluffy') it will drop an Elytra. This should help with acquiring one since the first few thousand blocks of the End have been raided.
