The Carroll County Arts Council welcomes anyone with a sweet sense of humor and artistic skill to enter a Peeptastic creation in our 14th Annual PEEPshow.

March 26 – April 5, 2021

We’ll accept dioramas, sculpture, mosaics, photography, paintings, videos, and computer generated art that feature PEEPS® as their primary subject matter or artistic medium. Entries do not have to be made with PEEPS® or edible materials, just as long as it is clearly PEEPS® themed.

Registration deadline EXTENDED!

NEW THIS YEAR

This year’s contest will be a hybrid format with a LIVE component at the TownMall of Westminster and a VIRTUAL component that will allow for national participation.

During registration you will be asked to choose whether you are participating in ONLY the VIRTUAL component or in BOTH the LIVE and VIRTUAL components. LIVE and VIRTUAL voting will begin simultaneously on Friday, March 26, 2021 at 10:00am.

Registration is required for ALL entries, whether you choose the LIVE or VIRTUAL options.

General Entry Guidelines

  • One entry per person.
  • By submitting your entry you agree to allow the CCAC and Just Born Inc. to use your name and/or images of your entry in print, online publicity materials, and merchandise.
  • This is a fun show for a family audience. The CCAC executive committee reserves the right to not accept an entry for display, and to alter or remove an entry from the display.

LIVE Exhibit Entry Guidelines

  • Entries must be engineered so that they can be easily moved and not require attachment to walls, ceiling, etc.
  • Entries may not contain hazardous materials, living plants or animals, liquids, loose soil, gravel, sand, glitter, or other materials prone to spilling.
  • CCAC is not responsible for maintaining entries during the event.

View Video Entry Guidelines

If you choose to register with a completed entry photo, consider the following:

  • You can upload only one photo of your entry, so make it count!
  • Consider adjusting the lighting or taking the photo outside on a sunny day to best show off the vibrant peep colors.
  • Find a clean and neutral background for your photo, such as a blank wall, so that there is nothing to distract from your art.
  • Entries that were created in a digital format can be submitted directly.
  • OPTIONAL: If a video would do your entry more justice, you can film a short video of your entry, post it to YouTube, and then insert the YouTube link into the corresponding field of the registration form.

If you register with NO entry photo, you can email a photo of your completed entry when you have it to Will@carrollcountyartscouncil.org no later than March 22. The CCAC staff will then update your entry’s photo.
