The Washington Post Peeps Contest saw hundreds of applicants construct lifelike dioramas out of marshmallows. Given the politically tumultuous nature of the past year, many of the submissions were political and somber in nature -- well, as serious as they can be given that the displays are made of yummy candy bunnies.
The winner of this year's contest was 'OccuPeep D.C.,' created by Cori E. Wright. The entry depicted one of the Occupy protest movements that swept the nation, and the world, over the past year.
Other honorable mentions go to 'WikiPeeps,' 'The Right Was Wrong: Same-Peep Marriage Passes in Maryland,' and 'The capturing of Peep Bin Laden with Peep Team 6,' for their satirical takes on some heavy, heated issues.
The Washington Post Peeps Contest is a scrumptiously lighthearted way to remember some of the most important events that shaped the nation over the year. The content draws in over 700 submissions annually.
