Marshmallow creativity: Trib's 2011 Peeps Show Contest

Daily Photo Galleries

By Pittsburgh The Tribune-Review
Sunday, April 17, 2011

We celebrate our love of marshmallow Peeps with a contest to stretch your creative muscles.

The challenge: Create a diorama of a scene in which all the characters are played by Peeps marshmallow bodies.

Here's how to play along at home:

Choose a scene -- from history, a movie, advertising or pop culture. Build a diorama using a shoebox or similar-sized space. Create a setting, furnishing, a backdrop -- you are limited only by your imagination and glue gun.

Take a digital photo of your diorama and send a high-resolution, JPEG attachment via e-mail. Include your name, address, telephone number and the title of your masterpiece. Extra credit goes to those who know how to cleverly fling a good pun.

The grand-prize winner will receive a $100 gift card and an assortment of Peeps products, including a Peeps ball cap, tote bag, magnet and mug.

Two runners-up each will receive a $50 gift card.

To enter, e-mail your diorama photos to .

Deadline is April 15. The winners will appear in the April 23 edition of this newspaper.
