How it works

Every 2 months we begin a new competition. Our current contest is “Patriotic Challenge." The Contest will last from July 1st - August 31st.

You can join the contest at any time. Once you enter you can vote on all the current entries. If you are a Carver, you can also submit your entries.

Scoring

  • All entries are scored on a scale of 1-10.
     

  • Simply select the number of votes you want to give to a submission, and that amount of points will be added to that Carvings overall score.
     

  • The Carvings are entered into 2 contests: The Carver Award and the Voting Public (VP) Award.
     

  • The scores are tallied to create the current leaderboard.
