The season of marshmallow glory has arrived yet again.
Ladies and gentlemen, start your glue guns, because entries are being sought for that annual rite of spring, the Pioneer Press Marshmallow Peeps Video contest.
Our contest, the first newspaper-sponsored Peeps diorama contest in the country, has inspired hundreds of people worldwide to invoke their corn syrup muse and create art out of squishy chick- and bunny-shaped candy. In 2010, we expanded our contest to include video.
Here again is our challenge to you:
-- Make a video of less than 2 minutes featuring Marshmallow Peeps.
-- Upload the video here. Include the name, age, address and phone number of the creator or creators, plus any comments or information or artist's statement you wish to share.
-- There is no limit on the number of entries per person or group. There is no entry fee.
-- The deadline is 5 p.m. April 7, 2014.
Winners will be chosen by a team of judges at the Pioneer Press. Results and photos of the winning entries will be displayed in the April 20 Easter Sunday edition of the Pioneer Press and on TwinCities.com.
