This year’s standouts include reproductions of oil paintings and controversial films, as well as replicas of iconic landmarks and democratic institutions. But ultimately nostalgia won. The diorama, “Twinkie: Rest in Peeps,” stole the most hearts and votes from The Post newsroom.
The Winner: “Peeps Mourn Their Peeps: Twinkie, Rest in Peeps” Our seventh annual Peeps Diorama Contest brought in more than 650 entries. After whittling by a panel of judges and voting by The Post newsroom, we have a winner: “Peeps Mourn Their Peeps: Twinkie, Rest in Peeps,” created by Leslie Brown, 55, and Lani Hoza, 48, of Charlottesville.
