100415 Pumpkin

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Well, at least according to Fox Mulder. October is in fact the spookiest month of the year—when ghosts and ghouls come out to play. Here's to hoping that paranormal apparitions don't have Mulder and Scully shooting at each other again. 

If you're eager to get into the Halloween spirit, then we're here to help. Join the 6th Annual XFN Pumpkin Carving Contest to make the most of this holiday. With the Revival upcoming, you should have plenty of X-Files excitement to channel into a pumpkin. 

Here's what you need to know: 

  • Your pumpkin must feature The X-Files in some way.
  • You must send a photo of your pumpkin to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by October 31st at 11:59pm ET.
  • You can submit a pumpkin that you didn't carve for the contest, but not one you've submitted before.
  • Only one entry per Phile.

So who decides the winner? Well in the past, guest judges have included Frank Spotnitz, Annabeth Gish, Chris Carter, and Gillian Anderson, so you can expect a judge with some serious X-Files knowledge. That means it's time to bring your X game. Plus, the winner will be receiving some cool X-Files goodies!

Not sure where to start? Check out past entries from 2014, 20132012, and 2011 to get some inspiration. Happy carving, Philes!
