The Office Peeps Contest

The Office Peeps Contest
Banner: Matt Collins

It’s about time we had another cool, creative contest, right?

First off, I must say, this idea is totally swiped from The Washington Post’s magnificent Peeps Diorama Contest (check out last year’s entries). When I saw those amazing creations, I knew I had found our next OfficeTally contest!

Your task: depict a scene from ‘The Office’ using Peeps, for a chance to win a $30 Amazon.com gift certificate and a cast-autographed mug from ‘The Office’!

UPDATE: the 20 finalists have been selected!

How to submit an entry

  1. Go buy some Peeps.
  2. Depict a scene from ‘The Office’ using Peeps.
  3. Take a photo of your scene, and upload it to any photo sharing site.
  4. Add a comment to this post with:
    – The Office episode name and scene depicted
    – a link to your Office Peeps photo
    – any details you would like to highlight
  5. Include a valid email address in the Email field of your comment.

You’ll see a [from tanster: received] note in the comment when your entry has been officially received; please allow 48 hours for this to happen. All entries will be hidden until finalists are announced.
