Robinson’s Place Dumaguete will be the center of another visual experience on Monday, October 3, as Foundation University architecture and fine arts students holds their annual pumpkin carving contest.

The contest, which starts at 3:30 p.m., will have the contestants depict a Halloween theme on the pumpkin. They may choose any design related to Halloween except the traditional Jack O’ Lantern. “You do a Jack O’ Lantern and you’ll get disqualified,” warns Victor Vicente Sinco, dean of the Department of Architecture and Fine Arts.

This may be a fun event where contestants will pit their creativity with each other but more than that this is actually a test for the DAFA students. “This contest,” Sinco explained, “will introduce the idea of stress. You know you have to perform and perform well.”

There will be a professional category and a student category. Students may not know it yet, but carving pumpkins is actually a skill. “When you shave a pumpkin and you put a candle inside it, you can see the nuances of the thickness of the pumpkin,” Sinco explained.

The entries will be judged at 6:30 p.m. and the pumpkins will be on display until the mall’s closing time.

This will be the third year that Foundation University will be holding this contest.
