2017 Laurel Book Store Peeps Diorama Contest Official Rules
1. Create a scene. Sketch some ideas before you start. Extra credit may be given to those who deftly employ puns in the concept or title. All dioramas must include Peeps.
2. This is sponsored by an Oakland book store. The two things each diorama must have are:
A) Something recognizably Oakland: a landmark, an iconic building, a historical figure, et cetera
B) Something book or literary related: book, story, theme, character from a book, et cetera
3. Make your diorama using a shoebox or comparable item of reasonable size, not to exceed 2 feet wide by 15 inches deep by 3 feet tall. To be eligible for finalist standing, the diorama must be transportable to the store by one person. Do what you like to the chicks and bunnies to make your vision a reality.
4. There are two categories for entry: 1) Adult- 13 and over, 2) Children-12 and under. Children must have an adult sponsor. Contest is open to Bay Area residents who can manage to get the piece to the store for the contest.
5. Bring your diorama to the store between April 10 & 12. It must be in the store by close of business on April 12 to be eligible. Winners will be announced at noon on April 15 at the store.
a. Your name, age and your town or Oakland neighborhood.
b. The names, ages and neighborhood or town of anybody who contributed to the diorama.
c. The title of your diorama.
d. A contact phone number and email address (not for publication).
e. A sign 11.5” x 4” with a, b, & c above printed on it to put near your diorama.
6. The decision of the judges is final. Seriously, don’t try to argue with them.
7. Entrants give permission to Laurel Book Store to use images of their entry for promotional uses without compensation. Laurel Book Store will keep the works on display until Saturday, April 29, when they should be picked up.
8. The top winner in each category will win $100 in book credit from Laurel Book Store. There may very well be other prizes awarded as the judges see fit.
9. Have fun, be creative, and start Peeping!
