Baby model search

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.

    I have 5 beautiful babies from ages 6-5 months. Two girls 6yr old Suki and 2yr old Khylee, also three boys 5yr old Skyler, 3yr old Kamren and 5 month old Kayden. They all would be perfect models, they are funny, cute, sweet and have great smiles. I would love it if I can get the chance to show you.

    I have 4 children that I posted during Gaps last casting call but I didn’t ever hear anything, sadly! For years I’ve been told my children should be models by employees at Gap and by countless others. I feel they have a different look with their blonde hair and blue eyes. We would rock out for GAP!!!!

    My daughter knows it ALL! She has the LOOKS, the SMILE, and the MOVES….Don’t know where she got it from but it all comes natural to her. EVERYONE gets amazed when they see her dance or pose for a camera. They ask where she took classes at and we reply with “she hasn’t taking any classes.” I truly believe she has a future in modeling. Thank you for your time

    My 7 yr. old son did a Gap Kids fashion show not long ago and he ripped the runway, moving the crowd in his GAP attire and if he’s given a chance to represent and work with Gap Kids Casting he would be enthused! He is a natural and is always making others happy by giving and is loved by so many Thanks and when you meet him you’ll know immediately why you chose one of the best kids ever. THANK YOU
