TV Guide has joined forces with CNET and GameSpot to find the best Sheldon Coopers, Fleabags, Jon Snows and whatever other big or small screen character-inspired costumes you all are sporting for Halloween 2019. Witches, vampires and superheroes are also welcome.
There are four competitive categories — Individuals, Groups, Kids and Pets — with various prizes for each. The winner of the Individual category, for instance, will get two $50 gift cards from HalloweenCostumes.com to help out with next year's ensemble; a $25 gift card for CBS All Access, an Echo (3rd Gen) and a Nintendo Switch Lite. The prize for the group consists of a $350 Amazon gift card and five $25 gift cards for CBS All Access.
The winner in the Kids category will take home a $50 gift card for HalloweenCostumes.com, an Echo Dot Kids speaker, a Nintendo Switch Lite and a $25 gift card for CBS All Access. And last but not least, the prize package for the Pets category comes with a $50 gift card for HalloweenCostumes.com, a $25 gift card for CBS All Access and a Petcube Bites 2.
But what would a contest be without rules? Those who compete in the Individuals category must be 18 or older to participate. For Groups, two or more people need to be a part of the group photo and the person that submits it needs to be 18 years or older. That person will be representing the group in the contest and will be receiving the prize so that it can be divided amongst team members.
As for the Kids category, in order to participate, you have to be the parent of the kid or kids in the picture. The children competing must be under 13 years old in order to participate. And with Pets, animals of all ages and types are allowed but must be wearing a costume. The pet's owner must be the one submitting the picture. The deadline for submissions is Nov. 3 and if you're interested in competing, click here for the form.
Don't forget to add a caption because it will be part of the judging criteria. Please make sure that the costume photos do not feature nudity, hate speech or discrimination, as those will be disqualified. We will also be making a gallery with the best submissions to show off our creative readers' scene stealing costumes. Last year's creations were beyond brilliant and can be checked out here. Happy Halloween!
