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.

Baby modeling

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.

The Gap just opened its Gap Kids Model Contest Today! Check it out here.

      My precious daughter is 4.5 months. She is a wonderful baby she loves to smile and is giggling already. She is enthusiastic, and loves music and swimming. She is multi racial a piece of a well diverse world. She rarely cries but bellows when she is hungry, she sleeps well at nights but loves to be up in the day, she feel like too much is happening to sleep.
      She has the mose beautiful pearcing eyes and the craziest hair, with cute lips, just a beauty. I would love information on the upcoming gap castings calls for 2011, I really think she can be one of the babies on a gap poster.

  36. William Capo

    My daughter Grace is a firecracker, she recently turned one and certainly has something unique and special about her look. We would love to be given a shot! How do we enter?

  37. kyley

    My little sister JoAnne would make for a beautiful Baby Gap model. She is just the most adorable baby I have ever seen and everyone that sees her tells my mom the same thing. JoJo is very well behaved and she is always smiling. JoJo has curly brown hair and very green eyes. She really does take the best pictures and is very playful. I want my sister JoAnne (JoJo) to audition to be a Baby Gap model and to be in one of their commercials.


  38. Lulu

    My sister has the best baby for Baby Gap. My sister’s baby is 6 months and has blue eyes and blond hair. The baby’s name is Jo ann and she has so much hair for being only 6 months old.

    My entire family thinks that Jo Ann should be a baby model and in commercials because she is so cute. She does not walk yet but she is a baby and she will be even cuter when she is a little older, especially in the GAP overalls. Hope she gets a chance to tryout to be a baby Gap kid. I think it would be so cool if she was on TV or in a commercial.


  39. Marlysa Long

    I have a 2 yrs old daughter by the name of Da’Yona. She is very little for her age, she loves taking pictures she knows when you pull out your phone or if she sees your camara its time to take pictures. She is a really good poser, and is a African American child who just love to have fun. She loves to shop and dress up like her mommy. I would like more information on the 2012 casting calls because I am interested, Thanks!

  40. Laura McRae

    My son is 10 months old! I have been told many times since my son was born that I should submit him for modeling. I can not go into public without being stopped so that people can look at my son! He has big bright blue eyes that captivate you and very blonde hair! His hair is streight with a potential for curls! I always get compliments on how patient and well behaved he is! I want my son to have a bright future with many options! Baby Gap would be a wonderful oppurtunity for my son Joseph! Thank you for your time and please send any information on upcoming modeling auditions that you have! Thank you in advance!

  43. Janna Sanders

    Hi, I have a 14 month old daughter and would love the opportunity to enter her for a chance to model for BabyGap! We really love shopping BabyGap!

  45. kiara

    I would like to entered my daughter in to the audition for baby gap, were can I do that?

  46. Kenya

    I have a great 4 year old little boy. He is African American and very smart. He does great on camera and was already in a commercial for a kids cloths store where we live on TV.

    I think he would make a great GapKids boy or a child model. He is not a baby, but I think that the GAP can still use him for their ads. I really want him to do this and he has always loved to be the center of attention and to perform. He really does love the camera and the camera loves him.

    He is light skinned with longish hair. I have let his hair grow out because it looks so great on him. He always gets many compliments on his hair and he does not look like any other kids. I want to get him into modeling and I think he is exactly what Gap Kids is looking for as far as a boy or child model. I will take him anywhere and do everything to make this happen. He really does have the looks because he looks so unique because of the long hair and light skin.

    He is mixed african american and hispanic and has the best attitude of any kid I have ever seen. I have 3 other kids and I don’t think any of them have the patience or attitude to model like he does. He really will do anything asked and hold a pose for a long time without moving.

    Please let me know where to send his pictures or where to take him for the tryouts because I will. I have lots of time and this is what we want to do. I also want to enter him into modeling contest but I can’t seem to find any that do not cost money to enter. I want him to get a chance at this because he really seems to enjoy being the center of attention and is good at taking pictures.

    I wanted to get him to the Kids Gap store for the last casting but it was a bit too far. Please do more castings for kids that do not live in New York. We live in Atlanta and even though I can drive there, I found out about it too late. BTW I also have a baby that would be great for BabyGap as well.


  47. Jenny

    I want to get my baby into GAP modeling. I think my baby would be a really great Baby Gap model. She is gorgeous and I always get many compliments on her everywhere I go. Everyone always says that my baby should model and do commercials. I really want to get her college fund started and I hope that this may give me a way to do that.

    I also can’t wait for the next Gap Kids modeling contest. I think my daughter would do great. If anyone knows how to get us started please let me know.

  48. Lynn

    My daughter just had a baby 6 months ago and she really wants to get her baby into modeling. I know that GAP does castings in some stores in big cities, but we do not live anywhere near a GAP store. I am waiting for the online contest. Hope it happens very soon and if anyone has any info about when and where any more GAP contests or baby modeling contests are please post that info and share it.

  49. Sally

    I can’t wait to get my baby into the Baby Gap baby model contest. I know that a date is not yet announced, but I hope it will be very soon or at least before my baby becomes a toddler, lol!

  50. Jesse

    I just gave birth 2 months ago to the cutest baby ever. I want to put her in baby modeling and maybe some cute baby contests where she can win some money. I have looked around but am not sure what my next step is to do this for her. She is great and does not cry all the time. I think she would make a perfect Baby GAP model and I hope that we get something for her soon.

  51. Chris

    Hi I’m Chris and My brother and I are twins, we are both 11 and we would love to be in the Kids commercial. We both have green eyes and light brown hair and are in the 6th grade. I have been in some school plays and do really well in front of a camera. I hope we get a shot at this because it would be really fun.

  52. Jessica Frowner

    I just had a baby and she is adorable. I want her to do some baby modeling and am looking for contests to put her in. she is still very young, not even a month and maybe too young to model because she can not yet smile, but I hope by the time the BabyGap contest is going on that she will be a few months old and I can enter her because I do think that she is cute enough to win the hearts of the judges.

  53. June Gomez

    I love shopping in the Gap stores and I think my grand kids would be perfect BabyGap and GapKids models. I have grand kids that are 2 months old all the way to 16 years old. I would love to see the younger ones in an ad especially since I buy so many outfits for them from the GAP stores and Kids GAP stores. I also want to know when the next GapKIds contest will be. I think I missed the last one or maybe it just was not publicized very well. Either way, I am gonna keep an eye out for the next one that I hope will be coming up soon in 2012.

  54. Henna

    My grandson Aaron is perfect to be a Baby Gap baby model. I hope they do more open casting calls in other cities so that Aaron has a chance to get on a Baby Gap ad or a Gap Kids commercial. I hope they have more in 2012 because I do not remember that they had a contest in 2011. The last Baby Gap contest I could find information on was in 2010. So 2012!! Please Gap, Do a contest!

  55. ella
