THE 2016 HOME HAUNTER AWARDS CONTEST

 


The Home Haunter Awards Contest is our signature annual awards event honoring the creativity, passion and hard work of our members.

The Canadian Haunters Association recognizes all the blood, sweat and tears that go into preparing and decorating a home, yard, garage, walk through or party decor haunt leading up to Halloween.

Awards are presented in multiple categories to recognize each aspect of the artistry and ingenuity of a Haunt attraction.

To enter the contest, simply enter a video of your Halloween Haunt. The submissions are judged by the previous year’s winners based on your theme, décor, props, scare actors, music and anything else your creative mind can come up with.

Winners receive an award certificate, a custom trophy created by Haunted House Creations and of course the bragging rights for being recognized by the Canadian Haunters Association with this prestigious award event!
