For the advanced pumpkin object contest do we still need to start with the base pumpkin? If so how dramatically can it be modified? Can we add to it until it is unrecognizable?

Yup, for both categories, you need to start with the base pumpkin, but you can modify it as much as you want! Make sure to check the contest rules and peak the judging criteria, but generally, we like to leave space for creative freedom in our contest! 🙂 Good luck!

Politics and regulations are the big ones. Every country, and often every province, district, or state in each country, has their own rules that limit which contests their residents can enter. The paperwork and filing procedures are probably simply too daunting and tedious to tackle.
