Things are looking mighty spooky here at NYC. Recently, we asked you to send us your Halloween office party pictures. So, we thought it would be fitting to reciprocate.

For our office Halloween party, we decided to stick with the classics and do a good ol’ fashion pumpkin carving contest. We split up into three teams: the Killah Candy Corns, the Powerhouse Pumpkin Pies, and the Crushin’ Caramel Apples. Each team got 45 minutes to carve its pumpkin. Pumpkins were then judged based on four criteria: Originality, Creativity, Craftsmanship, and Association.

Currently, our highly-trained Chicago-based pumpkin judges (aka our Chicago team) are deliberating as to which team is the winner. Until the winner is crowned, you can enjoy some photos from the evening:
