AllHallowsThing 2014

Today marks the launch of our 2nd Annual AllHallowsThing Contest!

“What is AllHallowsThing?” you ask? Last year, we asked you to send us pictures of your literary-themed Halloween costumes and pumpkins, and boy, were we impressed.Your submissions knocked our socks off.

Help us celebrate Halloween once again!

How to enter

  • Choose one (or both!) of the two categories.
    • Costume: Dress up as a character, object, etc. from your favorite book.
    • Pumpkin: Decorate a literary pumpkin!
  • Take photos of your costume/pumpkins.
  • Upload your photos to your member gallery.
  • Be sure to tag your photos. Tag them with “AllHallowsThing2014“. Yes, capitalization matters.
  • Go ahead and add a title, description, etc., detailing how you made your costume or creation.
  • Deadline: Be sure to submit your costumes and pumpkins by 6pm Monday, November 10th to be considered for one of our fantastic prizes!


On November 11th, LibraryThing staff will have a top secret meeting in which we’ll choose winners for each category.

Grand Prize: One per category

Runners Up: Two per category

  • Your choice of a LibraryThing t-shirt, stamp, or CueCat
  • A lifetime LibraryThing gift membership

Fine print: You can enter as many times as you like, to either category, but you can only win one prize. By entering the contest, you certify that your creation is your own. All decisions regarding winners will be made by LibraryThing staff, and our decisions are final, damn it. LT staff and family can enter, but can only be honored as prize-less honorable mentions. We reserve the right to use your photo, but the copyright remains yours. You can release them under a copyleft license.

    Oh fudge! I thought this was going to be a submission for scary stories (short or otherwise). I dug through my stuff and found a two page short story I wrote a while back. The idea was for a short, scary video, but painted with words.
    Imagine my disappointment. Will anyone ever get to read it?
