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 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.
