The contest, which runs through Friday, October 17th, invites participants to make a costume the way the Boxtrolls do – out of a box – and submit a photo via Amazon’s Facebook page. A panel of judges will evaluate all submitted original costume creations inspired by the Boxtrolls themselves. The resulting finalists will then be put to a vote on the Amazon Facebook page, where fans will weigh in to select the lucky winner, who will receive $3,000 in Amazon.com Gift Cards. Photos must be submitted by NEXT Friday, September 26th; voting takes place Monday, October 13th through Friday, October 17th.

About The Boxtrolls
Being released nationwide by Focus Features on Friday, September 26th, The Boxtrolls is the all-new family event movie from LAIKA, the creators of Coraline and ParaNorman, that introduces audiences to a new breed of family – The Boxtrolls, a community of quirky, mischievous, kindhearted tinkerers, who have lovingly raised a human boy named Eggs (voiced by Isaac Hempstead Wright of Game of Thrones) in the amazing cavernous home they’ve built beneath the streets of Cheesebridge. When the town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs decides to venture above ground, “into the light,” where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnie (Elle Fanning of Maleficent). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family. Based upon the book Here Be Monsters, by Alan Snow, The Boxtrolls is directed by Anthony Stacchi and Graham Annable, and is rated MPAA-rated PG.
