Gerber Baby Modeling

Gerber Baby Modeling

Do you have a Gerber Baby? Does everyone who sees your baby say that your baby should model? The 2014 / 2015 Gerber baby modeling contest and photo search is on now!

Gerber Baby Model Search 2014

Gerber is running a baby photo contest and winners may get up to $50,000.00 and a starring role in a national Gerber TV commercial. The contest is open right now and you can upload your baby’s picture for consideration. The baby model search is open to babies ages newborn to 3 years old with separate categories for each age group.

The Gerber baby is one of the most recognized images in the world – In 1928 Gerber held a contest to find a face to represent a baby food ad campaign. Artist Dorothy Hope Smith entered her simple charcoal sketch of a tousled-hair, bright-eyed cherub of a baby with endearing pursed lips.

The original contest was used for a promotion for a new product the company was launching. In 1928, the “Gerber Baby” sketch was introduced in an advertisement for the new product in the Good Housekeeping magazine. The world recognized sketch by Smith became the Fremont Canning Company’s official trademark in 1931. Fremont Canning later became the Gerber brand after a name change in 1941.

Even though the Smith sketch is still the companies logo, and has been for over 80 years, Gerber runs different ad campaigns nationally and holds still holds contests to find the perfect baby for their new ads.

    Oh by the way, forgot to say what my son Bryson looks like, well he has the brightest aqua blue eyes with bright blonde hair. He seriously gets told by everyone who meets him “wow you need to be a Gerber baby” we hear it so much we decided to try to get him into baby modeling. We think it would be a fun, great, life changing experience. Thank you! By the way, how can I send in his picture to show off his cuteness?

    My little guy is 11 months, dark brown beautiful eyes, curly luscious hair, very lovable and he loves new adventures. Everywhere I go we’re stopped by all ethnicities in grocery stores, restaurants, airport , mall, I mean you name it. Everyone wants to talk to him. We’ve had several people who have wanted to hold him and take him home. He would be the perfect face for your next commercial or diaper photo.

    I have a brown eyed son named Kayden Armand Propps and trust the last name fits, well one look at him and you will be hooked forever especially by his smile. Not one time have me and his dad have been out without getting stopped and asked to take him home. Choosing him for gerber would be exciting, he will melt your heart and wish there was more of him to go around.
