Start collecting those colorful, marshmallowy bunnies and chicks: 360’s sixth annual Peeps Diorama Contest entry deadline is just weeks away.It’s hard to tell what those Peeps will get up to this year, but we can’t wait to see the results of your imaginations.
Our advice? This is, first of all, a Peeps contest, so don’t skimp on the Peeps. Spend some time figuring out how to get a lot of Peeps in on the action.
As always, almost anything goes; we just ask you keep it clean enough for publication in a family newspaper.
If you aren’t sure what a Peeps diorama is, just image search those two words online or visit www.inland360.com and enter “Peeps” into the search window to see winners of previous 360 contests.
Here’s how to enter the contest:
1. Buy a bunch of marshmallow Peeps.
2. Using the Peeps and other props, construct and create an interesting scene.
3. Take as many as three photos from various angles.
4. Send the photos to 360.
The deadline for photo submissions is noon April 8. We prefer images be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org (put “Peeps contest” in the subject line of your emails), but prints may brought to the Tribune office or sent to the Inland 360, 505 Capital St., Lewiston, ID 83501.
Do not eat or destroy your creation after photographing it, because if yours is chosen as a winner, you’ll need to bring your Peeps diorama to the Lewiston Tribune photo studio April 12 for a photo to be published on the cover of the April 18 edition of 360.
Entries will be judged by the staff of 360, and all entries also will be available for viewing online at inland360.com, where they will compete for a Peeple’s Choice Award.
There are two age categories: 12 and younger; and 13 and older. Submitters must include the following information about each diorama’s creator: name, age, city, email address and telephone number.
The winners will each receive two movie tickets. All who enter will receive an Inland 360 sticker.
