CONTEST RUNS MAY 15 - JULY 31, 2015

Its that time of year again and building season is in full swing. Every haunter has built tombstones for their haunt and now its time to show off your latest monolithic creations. Haunt Nation has resurrected our Tombstone Carving Contest, which was a HUGE success in 2013. Carving tombstones has always been one of my favorite things to do every year and I love seeing what your creative minds can put together. I am including in this post the contest flyer in JPEG format, please help make this the best contest we have ever had by sharing this around. Just click on the smaller image and it will open the full color, letter size version.

We have put together three prize packages that would make any haunter envious and a panel of judges that take this very seriously. But all of this could not be possible without the support of our contest sponsors: Gore Galore, Hot Wire Foam Factory, Fright Props, Return of the Living Podcast, The Rotting Vine, Halloween Haunt Calendar, Sam Haynes, The Tombstone Factory, Rusty Razor Studios and DBGgraphix.

If you need inspiration here is a link to my Pinterest folder with over 200 cemetery reference photos...enjoy!

Before we go any further I MUST go over the rules. These rules must be strictly adhered to or your entry may not be accepted. You must be a current Haunt Nation subscriber to enter. One entry per person. All tombstone submissions must be submitted by the builder, you may not submit on the behalf of anyone else. Only one photo will be judged, so make sure you send in the very best one you have.  All photos must be a minimum of 1,500 pixels wide. By submitting your photo you agree to allow Haunt Nation to utilize your photo for any future marketing. Your photos will not be sold.

Photos may only be submitted by email to garyberger@hauntnationmag.com. Please put Tombstone Carving Contest in the subject line. In the email please provide your full name, Haunt Nation nickname and full mailing address.
