~ greetings ghouls and goblins ~

*hold over until Novemer 7*

traditionally, the wild hunt describes spectral huntsman with hounds and horses galloping through the forest on the night of Samhain

to celebrate Samhain, hyacinth noir is hosting our own version of a wild hunt — a festive, photographic scavenger hunt, with a small give-away to the winners.  These items will be detailed in a later post, and we’ll have a first-, second- and third-place winner!

the hunt:

choose three of the following samhain-inspired items from the list below and take creative, festive and unique photographs of them (either individually or together as a group).  Send them to us via email (hyacinthnoir@live.co.uk) with a short paragraph detailing how you normally spend the sabbat

ghosts or witches
the wild hunt
skeletons and/or skullsowls or black cats
pumpkins and/or jack-o-lanterns
goblins or ghouls or monsters
autumn leaves or feasts
graveyard and/or tombstones
day of the dead

the hunt will end on the night of October 27 *held ever until November 7* and the winners will be announced on October 31 *November 10*; winners will be chosen based on their creativity and uniqueness of the photographs.  The photographs and short commentary will be posted to the site

please share the wild hunt on facebook and/or twitter, or even link back to us on your blog!


the first-, second– and third– place prizes have been announced!
