How do you enter?

Since the Washington Post started their Peeps diorama contest, it’s become an Easter tradition now to see what amazing entries they get.  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.


Check out the Washington post rules 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 2019 which is Peeps as Fables and Fairy Tales.

Peeps as fables and fairy tales is essentially a depiction of the famous marshmallow treats as part of a famous fable or fairy tale such as Little Red Riding Peep or Beauty and the Peep.

How to enter:

Step 1: Use a Shoebox

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, the theme for this year is Peeps as Fables or Fairy Tales.

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 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 Sunday, April 14th, 2019, at 11:59 p.m Pacific.
