Tryout to be the next BabyGap or GapKids model of the year.
2012 is around the corner and with the new year come new casting calls for some of America’s hottest kids brands, Gap, GapKids and BabyGap.
Every year BabyGap and GapKids (Baby Gap & Gap Kids) seem to do a model search. The BabyGap model search is for babies and toddlers while the GapKids model search is for elementary school aged children.
Many of the BabyGap and GapKids audition take place in the fall and this year the was a GapKids open casting call for a Christmas special. The Gap open casting call was held in one of the Gap Kids stores in New York City.
Various stores around the country have casting calls for either BabyGap or GapKids. The winners of the casting call / baby modeling contest are usually used in a certain photoshoot or video for an event that the store is having. Winning the contest, however, does not assure more modeling work for your baby, toddler or child.
The best way to find out about such events is to ask within your local store. Since most events are held in the store, the store employees or management should have some information about whether that store does baby modeling contests and when they think the next BabyGap or
Some more good news for parents who would like to see their children become BabyGap or GapKids Models. The Gap brand including its children’s line are expanding. GapKids tryout will be held.
GapKids and babyGap, two of the most recognized names in children’s apparel, announced plans for a new collection created for Gap by Diane von Furstenberg. The collection is expected to be available for purchase to customers in March 2012 through GapKids and babyGap stores in almost 30 countries including United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Italy, France, China, Japan and Australia as well as online in 75 countries.
An expansion of the line means more opportunities for more children to model for the apparel brand. The Gap brand has also expanded to many other countries and its popularity in Europe and Asia is increasing.
The Gap also owns other large brands such as Old Navy, Banana Republic and others. Those other brands such as Old Navy also hire many child models for their catalogs, commercials and promotional materials.When the Gap holds a modeling contests, the brand offers prizes to the winners and normally there are 4 winners. The winners also get to appear in ads and promos in store windows across the country.Last years winners of the kids and baby modeling contest got the following prizes:
- Featured in the windows of babyGap and GapKids stores nationwide
- $1,000 Gap GiftCard
Last years contest winners were Evie, Dylan, Sofia and Keyghan – A boy and girl from 2 different age groups, BabyGap and KidsGap.
Even though other castings have been held by GAP Stores in The U.S., it seems the nationwide baby model search did not happen in 2011. Hopefully 2012 will bring back the contest and choose 4 new winners to splash across the retail stores windows nationwide.
