The Washington Post had their 4th Annual Peeps Diorama and the above "EEP", which is in tribute to the movie "UP" was the winner.
While it looks great, it is more reliant on the diorama part than the Peeps and there are others that I like more and I thought displayed better use of Peeps, such as this very moving one entitled "Freedom is not free: A Peeps tribute to the veterans of the Korean War.
I think the "Where The Wild Peeps Are" has the most creative decoration of peeps and while may not be as visually appealing as some of the other entries, it is interesting and creative with at good balance of Peep/Diorama ratio.
This one entitled "Alfred Hitchcock Presents 'The Peeps'" is simple and visually appealing. Although it is "heavy on the Peeps" it captures the theme very well. The only downside with it being an older movie reference, some of the younger generation are probably scratching there heads and not getting it - if you are one of those, go to your local video store or library to see if they have a copy of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" as it is now a retro classic.
I found this one entitled ""Peep Coupe" , which is a play on Chik Fil A's "Eat More Chikin" ad to be the funniest.
The most disturbing one though, albeit very cute and clever would have to "The Bunny Suicides".
