72.5 Jack-o-Lantern Winners Announced

Posted on Nov 4, 2019 by in Magnet Limit, No Limit, Results Posted

1st Place: Purple Ixora

Purple Ixora constructed a classic jack-o-lantern with triangle eyes and interlocking teeth. Good job making that golden layer underneath pop. 1st place is awarded $100.

2nd Place: DBOI

DBOI carved up two pumpkins and made a pie of one. Both are well constructed, and that dollop of whipped cream is definitely the cherry on top. We did get a complaint about photo-manipulation, and have deducted 20% in the back end score calculation for breaking this rule. From now on, adding text to an image counts as photo manipulation, and will be flagged before voting begins. 2nd place is awarded $75.

3rd Place: Kico

A pumpkin complete with arms constructed of Nickel and Glow in the Dark magnets. A shame we don’t get to see it with the magnets aglow. 3rd place is awarded $55.

4th Place: tend2it

Our only entry made entirely of Zen Magnets, and definitely the most abstract entry. We’ve got a pumpkin carved with a skull face that we’re viewing through the back of the pumpkin. Really, tend2it was photographing something else, saw the skull face and decided to submit it. 4th place awards him with $35.

5th Place: king of metal

Another classic jack-o-lantern face, though this build is impressively only 1 layer deep. The king of metal also tried out gold magnets for the face, but opted for the stronger contrast with black. 5th place is awarded with $20.

6th Place: Isaac Santos

Finally, we’ve got 2 teenie builds, apparently mirror opposites. We at the Zen office certainly appreciate achieving a build with as few magnets as possible, and this is definitely it for a pumpkin. 6th place is awarded $15.
