Just curious if any one knows whether we will get t-shirts for pumpkin submissions as in years past. I believe the emails are usually sent out by now but not sure. Just curious to know so I know how many shirts to buy??

Thanks :D

We got an honorable mention "t-shirt winner" notice for my daughter's entry earlier in the week, so it's possible they have already gone out, but I'm not certain.

I know in the past, I've entered and didn't get a t-shirt, so it may just be select ones and you've rocked it each year! :D

I wondered that as well whether it was just random. Which is fine, just curious before I purchase our shirts.

Well I hope it's not random, because 1, it's a contest and 2, they usually send shirts to entries with a black Friday theme. Granted mine was not carved, it was drawn on, but it was BF themed and I thought, pretty cleaver. :P


If they did choose already, I'd love for them to post a link :wink:

I have a bit of a strange story. I received an email the day they announced the winners that was titled "BFAds 2015 Pumpkin Carving Contest Winner". I figured the year was just a typo. The message said that I received an honorable mention and to claim my free t-shirt, I needed to click the link and fill out my info. However, the picture of the Tshirt on the prize form was a picture of the 2016 Tee. I found that weird as well, but again chalked it up to a typo? I immediately filled out my info that day (October 31st)......and I still haven't received my Shirt. Normally I would just be patient and chalk it up to them being busy, but a person that won a daily giveaway of $50 and a Tee through the November contest said they already received their prize. So now I'm really confused :lol: Has anyone else had this same experience??

We had somewhat of the same experience, though I don't think the email said 2015. I do know for certain that the shirt on the prize form was the purple shirt from 2016 though because it caught me a little off-guard and I wondered if that had just been accidentally overlooked or if you would actually get a 2016 shirt. Either way, I filled out the form for my 7 yr old (she's who carved the pumpkin) and sent it off while in the grocery store parking lot right after getting the email lol. She was so excited to get an honorable mention. This past Monday, right before heading to soccer practice, we stopped to check the mail and her shirt was in the mailbox.

Needless to say she was so excited that she put it on overtop her soccer gear and wore it proudly even though it's just a "little" too big for her haha.

I can laugh about this now that you got your shirt, but I apologize that way my error! I generally run Webmaster and was doing pumpkins one day after working for what seemed like forever and after about 10 emails I realized that I was sending people emails with a 2015 title - we have a canned response to award pumpkin winners and I forgot to update the year. Then the next day I awarded someone a shirt and realized it was the wrong year pictured. So I apologize both of those errors are on me, but I'm super glad you got your shirt.
