It was a hard fought battle with 120 contenders
, but the grand prize winner of Joystiq's Annual-ish Pumpkin Carving Contest 2009
is ... Antonio F.
! His conceptualization of the Worgen starting zone from the upcoming WoW: Cataclysm
expansion is one of the most impressive gourd-based works of art we've ever seen. We imagine you guys feel the same way -- this pumpkin placed first in the poll by a huge margin, garnering 3,303 votes!
The first prize winner, with 2,309 votes, is Dennis C.'s
equally well-rendered rendition of the Borderlands
box art, which we've posted after the jump. Congratulations, you two -- and a heartfelt thanks to everyone who took the time to send in their lovingly crafted Jack O' Masterpieces! We'll be emailing the winners shortly to inform them about receiving their bounty; for the rest of you, have an unbelievably happy Halloween!
