The hosts say the competition is accepting "dioramas, sculpture, mosaics, photography, paintings, videos, and computer-generated art that feature PEEPS® as their primary subject matter or artistic medium. Entries do not have to be comprised solely of PEEPS® or edible materials, just as long as it is clearly PEEPS® themed." (View more registration guidelines here).
