In celebration, we're hosting a little contest on Instagram. Basically, we're asking you, our lovely, gore-loving readers, to don your best zombie drag, hit the streets, and harass your friends (which you're probably doing anyway).
All you have to do is get real grimy, enlist a buddy to serve as your minion/ photographer, and get yourself into as many awkward situations as possible. Spot a group of tourists in front of the Brooklyn Bridge? Get your zombie face in there. See a couple taking a romantic stroll through the park? Get your zombie face in there. Best friend's baby taking their very first steps? Get your zombie face in there!
Our favorite entries will be posted right here on the site for all to grimace at/ vote upon, and one lucky undead winner will receive an awesome Walking Dead prize package.
Standard contest rules apply. Only open to US residents. Readers may also enter by sending their photo and their contact information to Gawker Media, Attn: "Walking Dead Contest", 210 Elizabeth Street, Third Floor, New York NY 10012. The contest begins on October 1 at 11:59am EST and ends on October 21 at 11:59pm EST.
