Send in your Halloween photos to our contest

Halloween lurks around the corner, so it's time to pull out your costumes.

We're looking for great Halloween pictures of our readers and their children -- or pets -- decked out for Halloween. The top four photos will win a $25 prize, courtesy of Abracadabra -- Masquerade, Gag Gift and Magic Emporium, at 1009 Fording Island Road, Suite 104, Bluffton.

Share your photos with us -- superheroes, movie characters, pirates, princesses. We, in turn, will share them online at and, where voting for the top four will begin Thursday.

We need your photos by 5 p.m. Wednesday. Click to register. You can also mail them to Features Department, The Island Packet/Beaufort Gazette, P.O. Box 5727, Hilton Head Island, SC 29938, or hand-deliver them to 1809 Boundary St., Beaufort, or 10 Buck Island Road, Bluffton.

Please include your name, where you're from and contact information. We'd also appreciate a note including all the ghastly details, about the photo you send.
