There seems to be a trend every year when one big company seems to have a giant pumpkin growing competition, last year it was RD1 who from what I understand had a great interest from people wanting to take part, I haven’t hear anything about them running it again this year though.

But someone else giving it a crack is Mitre 10 Mega

You can check it out at http://www.mitre10.co.nz/kids/

I must be blind, but I couldn’t see anything advertised at the local Mitre 10 mega here, but I am sure if you ask they will point you in the right direction.

Will be great to see more people having a go at growing giant pumpkins this year.
