With over 1,100 gooey submissions, it was hard to choose a winner. Take a look at the top 40 entries to our third annual Peeps Diorama Contest: They're sweet.
WINNER: NightPeeps by Melissa Harvey, Arlington. A gorgeous re-imagination of Edward Hopper's famous painting "Nighthawks" won the hearts of the Style staff in a landslide vote. "I wanted to re - create the bleak urban landscape and the fluorescent light, and add a little pink and yellow," says Harvey, 44, a graphic designer for WETA who spent 45 hours over two weekends on the diorama.
