Nancy Duarte and the Duarte Annual Pumpkin Contest

If it’s Halloween again, then it is the time of the year when Duarte does its annual pumpkin design contest. Over the years, I have voted for what I thought was the most original pumpkin makeover — and yes, these are not real pumpkins, just virtual ones.

Duarte Pumpkin Contest

The contest is now open for voting to everyone — you can just go and enjoy looking at all the pumpkins, in all their creative fearfulness! And then vote for the one you want to be the winner.

Nancy DuarteWho could be better than Nancy Duarte to talk about this contest. When asked about what she enjoys most about this contest, Nancy says: “I love the anticipation around the carving. We start getting e-mails early October asking when the pumpkins will be done. The contest has been going for 15 years and each year as I’m working on mine I think, “for sure this time I’ll win” but I never have. So this year as I was working on my pumpkin I kept telling the poor thing that “I think you’re pretty but you’re not a winner” knowing that freakin’ brilliant pumpkins were being worked on at the same time.”
