Time to get the artistic juices flowing and create an entry for the annual Seattle Times Peeps contest.

It’s time for the popular Seattle Times Peeps Contest. Create a sculpture, diorama, tableau or art project of your liking that is made (mostly) of marshmallow Peeps.

You might take inspiration from current movies or TV shows, the arts, news events or Seattle-area icons. (Remember last year’s “Seafair Peeps” and “Salvador Peepli”?)

Our only requirement is that your finished artwork be suitable for publication in a family newspaper.

Here’s how it works: Craft your master Peep. Then go to seattletimes.com/peepscontest, click on the “Submission” tab, and upload a photo of your creation. Submit by April 5 at noon [DEADLINE EXTENDED UNTIL MIDNIGHT] to compete for prizes. Judging and Peeple’s Choice voting begin April 6.
