Baby Auditions have begun!
Do you think your child, baby or toddler is cute and photogenic enough to be the next baby model? Here is your chance to prove it! The Photo Contest is on!
A large apparel retailer, has opened up its online child modeling contest.
Every year the clothing chain runs a modeling contest for kids, infants and toddlers from newborn to 12 years old. The Baby model contest is open from today through April 22nd and allows proud parents to enter their child online for a chance to become the next face of the Kids clothing line.
Does your child have a smile that just lights up a room? Here is your chance to get your child noticed and win some great prizes. The grand prize this year is a photo shoot for your adorable kid, a $1,000 gift card and the chance to be featured in ads and advertising campaigns.
A total of 25 winners will be chosen from the online contest submissions. Four grand prizes that include a $10k grant to a charity, 5 winners that will get a gift card and photo shoot and 16 runners up that will also get a gift card.
Here is the list of prizes below:
FOUR GRAND PRIZE WINNERS will receive a professional photo shoot, a $1,000 GiftCard, and the opportunity to be featured in a marketing campaign.
Gap will also give a $10,000 grant in each of the four winner’s names to Communities In Schools, a nonprofit that surrounds students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Nationwide, Communities In Schools partners with nearly 3,000 public schools, assisting 1.25 million students and their families.
SIXTEEN FINALISTS will receive a professional photo shoot and a $500 GiftCard.
FIVE WINNERS will instantly receive a $500 GiftCard for casting their vote during the voting phase.
Once you enter your child in the contest (you can have as many as five entries), the submissions will be up for voting and a winner will be chosen by the end of July. The entry deadline is April 22 2012 and voting will begin afterwards. The voting for the finalists will be held in late May and everyone will be able to vote for their favorite child.
In recent years The retailer had multiple categories and a winner was chosen for each. The categories were based on age. This year they have a baby girl, baby boy, boy and girl category setup that you can browse to view the competition.
The contest just started today, and already you can see 50+ pages of entries.
To increase your child’s chances of winning, make sure you upload a great photo that was not taken with a cellphone or webcam. Make sure the picture is well lit and really shows off your child’s personality. Do not use blurry or dark pictures. If there is something I have learned from following the Baby Gap model contest it’s that blurry photos NEVER win. Remember, the baby modeling contest is based on votes and having a clean, sharp picture can go a very long way in getting strangers to vote for your cute kid, especially when many other proud parents just upload a cellphone shot.
The company has also setup a way for you to tell your friends to come and vote by entering email addresses and integrating their contest with Facebook.
