There are many ways to transmit big ideas - through videos, through the written word, or as the title of this blog attests, through pictures that are worth more than 1,000 words.

So Big Thinkers, get carving - or if you've already carved your pumpkin, take a picture of it and email it to us at

The winning jack-o-lanterns will be posted on this blog and on Big Think's Facebook page throughout the day tomorrow. Your deadline is when the clock strikes midnight on the West Coast tonight!

What makes a winning jack-o-lantern? Let's face it, the artists have the upper hand in this contest, but creativity always counts for something.
