It’s that time of year again, our annual Halloween costume contest!
We know that a lot of you out there are gearing up for Halloween. And we both know that pretty soon you will be posting pics of that fabulous costume of yours on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, which is why we’ve decided to throw another contest for you to show us your stuff.
This year, we’re putting $100 on the line for the grand prize. We’ll either give it to you in the form of a gift certificate of your choice or a PayPal deposit.
We’re also giving away merch from our online shop!
We will select 25 people that we feel have the best costumes.
Those 25 selected will then be in competition with each other and the top 2 from that group will then compete for the grand prize of receiving either a $100 gift certificate to a place of their choice or us depositing $100 into their PayPal account.

The top 25 most creative costumes will be chosen November 1st and then narrowed down to the final 2 by November 6th (according to voting, explained below) and then go head to head for the top prize. Winner will be announced November 10th, and final round will be done by poling of all of our followers.
Instagram will make up 50% of the vote, with both Facebook and Twitter making up 25%.
The formula to determine who makes the final round is (Instagram Rank * 2 + Facebook Rank + Twitter Rank)/4.
Readers can vote for their favorite costumes by logging into Facebook and liking and sharing the pics we have uploaded of the contestants, or by following us on Instagram @theurbantwist and double tapping the photos they like or by leaving comments.
Winners will be announced on our website and all social media sites and by entering contest, you’re agreeing that we may share your photo. If you’re under the age of 18, we may have to ask for your parents permission first before we’re able to display your pic on our sites. We will contact winners for their details at the time of their win.
