"Eep" by Michael Chirlin & Veronica Ettle based on the Disney Pixar movie "Up".
There's Russel on the porch with his merit badge sash and Mr. Fredericksen in the window with his glasses."The Mad Hatter's Peeps Party" by Amy Billingham, Rob Black, & Lauren Emeritz, based on the children's classic "Alice in Wonderland, was a finalist. I love the peep-shaped topiaries in the background.
This year's entries certainly were exceptional and set the bar that much higher for next year. These are just a small sampling. Go to the official Washington Post page and see the rest of the impressive finalists and semifinalists and even some videos. All the images here are courtesy of the Washington Post.
