Unless you paid special attention to this weekend’s Washington Post magazine, you probably missed the opening of the 2010 Peeps Diorama Contest. This will be the contest’s 4th year, and I can’t wait to see all of this year’s entries.
If you’re interested in entering, the first step is to brainstorm ideas and come up with a historic, current, or future occurrence and/or a pop culture related concept. You know an idea that is comprehensible by more than just you and your tight knit group of friends.
Then construct your diorama, keeping to the shoebox sized regulations, snap two high-resolution JPEG photos and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, March 1, at 11:59 p.m.
Once you’ve submitted be sure not to destroy/eat your masterpiece, because semifinalists and finalists need to be judged in person and may be displayed at The Post’s headquarters.
The stakes are rich with the winner receiving a two-night stay at the Gaylord National Resort and an $800 Peeps prize pack. I hope it’s not just good at the Peeps shop. Additionally, the four runners-up receive $150 Peeps prize packs.
