Most of these have just been found on google...

Just goto google, type in "PUMPKIN CARVINGS" and then click on the IMAGES tag, you will see most of the above that have just been downloaded and passed off as their own ... CHEATING SCUM

I'm sure that's not the case - I'm sure many locals have used google for inspiration and then made their own. You can clearly see they are on people's kitchen tables etc... (I hope that's the case anyway!)

Just to clarify I do use google for the ideas but the carving is my own and the kids work I think cheating scum is a bit harsh !!!!

we didnt cheat althou i do agree and think one or 2 was googled copied and pasted and stuck on wab site, we only googled the toy story faces and he free hand drew them on the pumpkin as i posted a pic of him doin it on wab site and when it was finished plus i didnt even realise it was a comp i was just showin our pumpkins off for other ppl to see and then i noticed we had been added to a pumpkin comp :-)

Yes, and most of the pictures on GOOGLE are also on kitchen tables.. etc

If you are going to do a contest for something like this then you should have asked people to either datestamp the pictures (so you can see it was taken this year) or have them have their name on a slip of paper and have that in the picture also.

I googled the image too and then drew it free-hand. (which is why my Gene Simmons looks more like Alice Cooper!!) But I took a pic of both together to prove they were mine and not copied from the internet

took my designs off google images, it's not a crime you too obviously use google but if you bothered to look properly you would see they are different as i made it myself, evidently your more jelous than artistic - if you are that bothered send me your e-mail and i'll post you the picture i have of my daughter holding it

oh for goodness sake don't be so childish, it couldn't be more obvious that the giszmo pumpkin on wab is not the same picture you just posted from deviant art, you can see part of another one of their pumpkins at the edge of the picture. Did you make one that  you weren't very happy with or something, you sure are taking this very seriously and getting overly stressed about it all. You maybe ought to apologise for calling people cheating scum, but you probably won't. Never mind, there's always next year.

Oh my word what a performance, i didn't google ours but if you look it cleary says i copied it from a friends picture of one she did last year me and my grandaughter carved it out with a vegetable knife and the fiddly bits we poked out with a kebbab skewer haha, it was just a bit of fun for a 6 year old, whats the prize for this competition anyway when i posted the pic there wasn't a competition as far as i was aware just wab asking for punkin pictures to add to the haloween fun, is it a 2 weeks all inc holiday to the Seychelles WAB ?

who won?

Reply Posted by Hmmmm on Friday November 4 2011 at 08:55
Isn't it strange how one of the winners pumpkins look IDENTICAL to this image found on google


Reply Posted by strikersangel on Friday November 4 2011 at 09:15
how rude some of the comments are, just very jealous people....... I printed the image from the net then drew it on the pumpkin then carved it out. You can even see my kitchen table and kitchen i took the pic with my mobile then uploaded it to the comp then to the net not from BLOODY GOOGLE. Some people do have talent !!!!!!!   
WAB thank you for the prizes

Congratulations - it's only a bit of fun competition, please don't fall out over it. It's standard practice to download a template from Google - my husband did it for ours.
