Hey Peeps, It's Diorama Time!

It's that time of year again. The Washington Post is hosting its 5th annual Peeps Diorama Contest. It should come as no surprise that I love dioramas and have been a huge fan of this contest since it's inception. Here are a few of my favorites from years past:

"Up" by Michael Chirlin and Veronica Ettle

"Creating a Masterpeeps" by Phyllis Mayes

"NightPeeps" by Melissa Harvey

"Goodnight Moon" by Mary Lea Harris

"Where the Wild Peeps Are" by Margaret Cooney and Adam Matuszeski

"Charm City Roller Peeps vs. DC Roller Peeps" by Hilary Christian 

"Rosslyn Metro Station, Friday 5 p.m." by Maria McLeod and Phil Bauer

"Peep Art" by Ilana Greenstein and Jane Dokko

"The Birds" by Linda Parker Gates and Brooks Wilson

"Nightmare in Pink" by Peter Byer

To see more entries from 2007-2010, check out the Peeps Shows. And if you want to enter yourself, there's still time; photo submissions are due March 14. You do have to be a local resident to be named one of the top five finalists, but anyone can enter for a chance to be featured in the online galleries and possibly the Washington Post Magazine.


  1. oh my, the Goodnight Moon scene made my heart so happy! I just love reading that one to Georgia.g

  2. I had never heard of this contest before, thanks so much for blogging about it. Those are some kick ass Dioramas. I love the Hopper one.

  3. this is the first i've heard of this contest too! i immediately fell in love with the up one, but the roller derby stole my heart as well!
