Welcome to the final year of the annual Delbert Family Peeps Diorama Contest. Yep, that’s right, this is it, the last enchilada (that’s for you Ms. Macias). So, make it a good one!

How do you enter?


When the Washington Post started their Peeps diorama contest, it became an Easter tradition to see what amazing entries they got.  We don’t live in the DC-Virginia-Maryland area so we couldn’t enter the contest, however, we decided to start our own friends and family contest to see who could make the best diorama. Now that the Washington Post has ended the contest, we decided after 10 years it was enough for us too.

Check out the 2020’s Entries Here , or any of the other years above, to see what people have done.  The picture above is from 2013’s Washington Post contest where the winner mourned the passing of Hostess Corporation and the iconic Twinkie snack.


How does it work?

  • Base a diorama idea on the general theme for 2021 which is 2020, what the Peep?!.

2020, what the Peep is essentially a depiction of the famous marshmallow treats as part of a commentary on the strangeness of the COViD-19 pandemic dominated year. Yes, we realize that it is pretty wide open.

How to enter:

Step 1: Use a box

Make your diorama using a shoebox or a comparable item of reasonable size. Use those fluffy chicks and bunnies to bring your creative vision to life. If you don’t know how to make a diorama, do an Internet search for “how to make a diorama.”  Remember, all entries must conform to the theme for this year.

Step 2: Take photos of your diorama

Take photos of your completed diorama from several angles. You may enter as an individual or family.

Step 3: Send us your photos

Send no more than two photos as high-resolution jpeg attachments to delbertpeeps@gmail.com. Put “Peeps” in the subject line, or risk being ignored as spam.

Within the text of the e-mail, include your name, daytime phone number, diorama title and any necessary information about its significance or creation.

How to win:

Photo submissions are due by Friday, March 26th, 2021, at 11:59 p.m Pacific. The dioramas will be then be posted on this site for voting by whoever wants to vote.  Voting ends at 11:59pm on Saturday, April 10th, 2021. We will publish the winner on Sunday, April 11th. The grand prize winner will receive a $50 Amazon gift card and a box of Peeps courtesy of The Delberts, the family that is sponsoring this contest.
