    it's that time of year again

    Time for the annual Washington Post Peeps Diorama contest.

    The winner and runners up.

    So many creative entries! I can appreciate the theme and the level of detail in the winner, but I really got a kick out of this runner-up: Human Diorama

    The real Ben's Chili Bowl is around the corner from where I live, and I immediately looked to see if they had the Prez there. Yep!

    I like the Human Diorama one too!

    Also fond of the Ride of Valkyrpeeps and Banana Joe winning Peepminster!

    So many good ones!

    I think you should not be able to use "clay" in the making of your peeps presentation. Any character should be made exclusively of peeps. The Finalist "A Sunday Afternoon..." is an example of one I would have not voted for.

    and at the Supreme Court (Clarence Thomas makes his first Peep)

    And drawings/photos of Peeps, i.e. anything not using actual Peeps, should be disqualified. Dioramas only! Hmph!

    And here are the winners of the Seattle Times Peeps contest.

    http://seattletimes.com/html/living/...innersxml.html

    I do love the library one. The library actually looks like this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seattle_Public_Library

    And then you can combine it with the famous "Peep Research" study by Millikin University http://www.millikin.edu/staley/about...s/default.aspx

    I've always loved the "Peeps" contests and I had forgot about it this year. Thanks for sharing!
