Breaking News’s 2014 Hunger Games Costume Couture Contest


It’s October, tributes, which means it’s time to get your cameras out and snap some fancy photos of your Hunger Games costumes! is happy to host our 1st Annual Hunger Games Costume Couture Contest, with fun prizes to be had for looking your best!

To enter, create your own Hunger Games themed costume and send us a photo (or photos) of it to contests@jabberjays.netPlease read the rules carefully. If you do not get a confirmation email within 24 hours of submitting your entry, please email us.


  1. All costume entries must have a very clear Hunger Games theme. The staff of reserves the right to strike any entry if the theme is deemed not relating to The Hunger Games.

  3. You may not enter someone else in this contest.
  4. Two photos are required for entry, a photo of the costume and a photo with verification. For verification, you can simply write “Join the Rebellion!” on a piece of paper and include it in the photo with the costume or with you.

    • Costume pose photo (we totally count creative photography in your favor!)
    • Verification photo
  5. Please include a description of your costume’s Hunger Games theme.
  6. DEADLINE: Entries must be submitted by midnight ET on October 31, 2014 (midnight on Halloween night).
  7. Due to the prizes available, the contest is open worldwide, but non-US entries are only eligible to win Second or Third Place.
  8. OPTIONAL: Please include your social media usernames so that we can showcase your entry online!

Tips for Good Costume Photos

  • Have someone else take your photo or keep camera very still, such as on a tripod or propped up on something.
  • Do not submit very small images as this can hurt the amount of points you are awarded by judges and will also prevent us from properly showcasing on social media. If we can’t see it, we can’t judge very well!

Here is an example of two valid Hunger Games costumes from of our very own Jabberjay Grant, including one that was taken when he was just thirteen!
