Last year's winner, "The Tomb of King Peepankhamun."

Some would argue that Peeps are edible, others would say they're perfect objects for arts and craft projects. Behold the Washington Post’s Third Annual Peeps Diorama Contest, now accepting entries.

The diorama should encapsulate a famous event or concept, whether past, present, or future. Judging by the last two years, timely is good, but not too predictable (SlumPeep Millionaire could be overblown). Since it's judged by the D.C.-area hometown paper, any D.C. references are good. Punny titles are also appreciated.

Though the contest is open to anyone in the U.S., the five finalists must reside in D.C., Maryland, or Virginia. Photo submissions are due by 11:59 p.m. March 15; send in no more than two as high-resolution JPEG attachments to peeps@washpost.com. The semifinalists and winners will be published on Easter Sunday, April 12. Look at last year's slide show for inspiration. Start warming up the hot glue gun.
