GUTS 2014

This past weekend was the 6th Annual GUTS competition. I made sure to check it out since I knew lots of people competing and also had heard about how cool it was in the past years. If you haven’t heard of GUTS, it’s a friendly pumpkin carving competition organized by Crafted and co-hosted by AIGA. The competition is open to local and regional creative professionals that want to test their pumpkin carving skills, and more importantly, they were able to raise $27,000 for the brave kids of The Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The team over at Crafted did an amazing job this year of organizing and running the event, which included watching some great carving action, music, beer and a new voting category – “The Peoples Choice Award” ( Congrats to The BOLT Group for winning!)

With only 90 minutes to carve, it was pretty exciting to watch as the teams quickly worked. The Opus 59 Team is definitely thinking we have what it takes to compete next year! Check out the photos we took at the event of the carving in action and head over to the GUTS page to see the winners this year!

Happy Halloween from Opus 59!
