Pumpkin Decorating Contest: List
Jack O' Lanterns


Voting form will close Sunday, November 7th, 11:59 PM PST




Welcome back to the pumpkin patch! We're so excited to see your pumpkin and pumpkin-adjacent DIY creations! This year, you will have all of the month of October to submit your DIY Showcase entries, and we will review your creations in a special post-Gramarye livestream after the October 31st submission deadline. 

Not a fan of gourds? Squash down those worries, because we're accepting any and all (appropriate) Halloween-related DIYs as well! So let the creative pumpkin juices flow, the possibilities are endless.    



You can opt-in to entering the contest portion of this event to win a prize pack supplied by members of Bay Area Kei. Contest voting will start during the DIY review livestream and end a few days later. Winners will be announced on social media and contacted via email. 

Your entries can be submitted for a chance to win in one of the two categories:​
🎃 Popular Vote 
🎃 Judges’ Choice

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: October 31st, 11:59 PM PDT 


  • Your entry can be any creative, seasonally appropriate DIY - as long as it is made by you (collage/mashup art is welcome!)

  • You will be asked to explain what parts of your DIY you created.

  • Both video and photo entries will be accepted. 

  • For photo entries: You may submit multiple photos to show your DIY’s details.

  • For video entries: All entries must be ten seconds or shorter in length. You may not use any copyrighted music or sounds in your submission, in accordance with Twitch policies.

  • This is an all-ages event, so please keep your creations rated PG-13.

  • You may submit as many entries as you like to be presented during the panel. However, only one of your entries can be your designated contest entry.

  • Note: If you are also participating in our Instagramarye Challenge, any pictures you take for Instagramarye can still be submitted to the DIY showcase/contest.

Submissions will be screened under the above criteria. If your submission does not comply with the guidelines, it will not be showcased in the panel and will not be eligible to win a prize.
