Has the approach of Halloween inspired you to trick out your yard with frightfully dreadful decor?

Has the landscaping become haunted by a lamentable collection of pumpkins, ghosts and witches?

The Advocate’s People section staff wants to see your most creative efforts.

Send in photos of your Halloween tableaus with a brief explanation of what inspired your spooky and/or comic creations. Include your full name, city, neighborhood and a telephone number.

For best results, we suggest photographing the yard art close up. Digital photography should be high-resolution (220 dots per inch or about a megabyte in size) and in jpeg format.

Upload photos online by going to http://sendphoto.theadvocate.com. Be sure to select “People” where it asks for where to send the photo. Or email your submissions to people@theadvocate.com.

You don’t do digital photography? Then mail your photo and information to The Advocate, People section, P.O. Box 588, Baton Rouge, LA 70821.

Submissions must be received by Oct. 19 to be considered for publication.
