To all you pumpkin-carving connoisseurs and jack-o'-lantern maestros out there, thank you for your submissions! Your pumpkins really blew us away, making our decision all the more difficult. So on top of unveiling the triumphant "King or Queen of Carving", we've gathered some of other favorites too, so you can love them as much as we did.

Hungriest Jack O' Lantern
Best Use of a Funkin
Three-dimensional and quite frightening, this Cyclops pumpkin took our competition into high gear. With a single eye that glows when the lights are dimmed, this strangely haunting creation probably scared the pants off young trick-or-treaters on Halloween night.
