Thousands of people traveled to the North Shore riverwalk to enjoy the first Monster Pumpkin Festival in Pittsburgh Oct. 20 and 21.

Sentry Media Staff

Multimedia is excited to announce another RMU Sentry Media photo contest! On Saturday, October 24, we will begin our contest with our first two topics – “Halloween” and “Fall Foliage!” It is spooky season after all, so why not share your festivities as well as all that Autumn brings to the table!

TOPIC #1 – Halloween (Saturday, October 24 to Sunday, November 1)

For this topic we have three different sections to submit for; skeletons, Jack O’ Lanterns and costumes. These can be as creative and as scary as you please!

TOPIC #2 – Fall Foliage (Sunday, November 1 to Sunday, November 8)

This includes anything like a blazing bonfire, fallen leaves, pumpkin patches and corn mazes. Anything that screams fall to you!

Submission Details

Please have your submissions in by the last date stated for each topic by 9 p.m. with the topic name, as well as your name, in the email. We will send out a reminder as the due date comes closer.

During each contest we will select a random photo to be posted/featured on our Instagram and other social media accounts on each day. For each contest, we will post the photo that earned the most votes based upon a Google Form that will be sent out. (For more details, read below!)

Please email submissions to Gabby at [email protected] with your photo. Our Social team would also like to tag those who submit a photo, if you have an appropriate Instagram account, so please add that to your email as well. If your account is deemed inappropropriate, we will still give you credit, but not tag any social accounts to the image. Submission to Sentry Media also gives us permission to post your image to our website (with proper credit to the original creator.)

We look forward to seeing your photos!
