The rules are simple:

1. Choose a Bible scene: All entries must clearly depict a Biblical scene, event, action, concept, or character. It does not have to be related to Holy Week or Easter.

2. Containment: The diorama must be self-contained in a way that is easily transported without having to set up pieces. It is highly recommended that all parts be glued in place. A shoe box or other small box is commonly used, though foam board, wood, and cardboard may also be used. Characters and scenery may extend outside of the box as
long as they are attached. Maximum width and depth of all components is 24 inches in either direction. There is no height limit.

3. Creative license: There is no limit on the number of Peeps used, nor are you bound to any color or type of Peep. You may use any medium, material or resource that fits your vision. Peeps may be cut, melted, molded, combined, glued, dressed, or otherwise mangled. Dioramas that utilize artistic license, humor, and are exciting to view are

4. Limitations: All submissions must be G-rated. Although non-peep props, scenery, dress, and minor characters may be utilized, peeps must be the main characters.

5. Title and description: Each diorama must be titled, contain a scripture citation (e.g. John 3:16), a scripture quote, and all Contributors’ names. This may be incorporated into the diorama or displayed on a placard in front of the diorama. Puns are welcome and encouraged.

6. Submissions are due by Palm Sunday, March 24 by 10 AM. Originality of concept and skill in execution will increase chances of winning. Winners will be announced on Easter Sunday, March 31. Pictures of peep dioramas may be posted online for admiration by the general public.
