Admit it, you’ve been waiting for this. It’s time for The Post’s eighth annual Peeps Contest. Each year, we ask you to create a sure-to-be-amazing diorama starring those mushy marshmallow goodies.This year is no different. The contest officially begins … now.

Make a diorama of a famous occurrence or scene. But remember: Whatever your design — a historic, current or future event, or a wink at pop culture — the main characters must be played by Peeps. Submit your entry by March 17. If you need inspiration — nay, Peeps-spiration! — check out galleries from past contests at washingtonpost.com/peeps. So, bust out the chicks and bunnies. We can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Read the Official Rules, and submit your entries here.
