Peep Art
Finalist: "The name is a pun, and the concept itself is the pun," explains Ilana Greenstein, 31, of Alexandria, an operations officer for the CIA who made the diorama with Jane Dokko, 30, of Washington.

Amy Winepeep's 'Rehab'
Semifinalist: Karen Besser, 58, of Arlington and daughter Nina Besser, 23, of Fairfax tackle Amy Winehouse's famous song and its real-life connotations. "Our toughest decision was whether she was Amy Peephouse, Amy Winepeep or Peepy Winehouse," says Karen. "The toughest technical aspect was getting the tattoos to adhere to her pipe-cleaner arms."

The Wonderful Wizard of Peeps
Semifinalist: "The whole project took me about two days," says justice advocate Kate Braggs, 23, of Washington. "The yellow brick road alone took hours to cut and lay." The background and scenery, including the poppies and the road, are made of paper.
