GUTS is a friendly pumpkin carving competition that was organized and created by CRAFTED, a marketing agency in Charlotte, North Carolina, and is co-hosted alongside AIGA. GUTS has now gone national, with the 1st Ever GUTS Pittsburgh pumpkin carving competition, hosted by AIGA Pittsburgh in Partnership with Wall-To-Wall Studios. The primary goal of this event is to unify the creative community in support of the kids who fight the real fight everyday at Make-A-Wish® Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
The competition is open to local and regional creative professionals that want to test their pumpkin carving skills, and more importantly, raise money for the brave kids of Make-A-Wish. We raise money through the carver's registration fees, the silent auction at the event, food, drink and merchandise sold at the event. For those who can't make it or would like to do a little extra, we invite anyone, anywhere, to contribute to a wish by donating.
Sign up as an individual or compete as a team of 2-3 individuals. Each participant or team must provide their own pumpkin and carving tools. Both individual and team divisions compete for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place and a chance to win the GUTS trophy for a year and all the bragging rights that come with it. Sign up to be a carver today!
Carver Fee: $50
100% of carver registration fees goes to Make-A-Wish Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
