Here we go with a brand new year and a brand new year usually means that the annual Baby model search for some major brands may be just around the corner!
Is your toddler, baby or child the next ‘It’ kid in the world of baby and kids fashion? If you are sure they are then the Baby, toddler and child model searches may be your way to prove it to the world. Many retailers have annual baby contests, whether your child has a gap in her teeth, a full set or no teeth at all, they are still adorable and may be able to win a contest.
Most proud parents may disagree on whose baby, infant or toddler is the cutest, but most do agree that landing a spot in one of America’s top child fashion brands would be the opportunity of a lifetime and maybe your bundle of joy may just fit into that perfect gap.
Every year for the past 6 or so years, many name brands have done a baby model search as well as a search for toddlers and young children. Babies grow up fast so there is always a gap that your child may just fit into.
Last year a well known brand held a baby model casting and a child model casting for their respective brands, Baby and Kids. Hopefully there will be a baby open casting call in 2015 as well as one for child models.
The baby modeling contests are usually held in early spring. Last year the events took place in April with 4 kids being chosen. The 4 children represent 2 lines of baby and child clothing. A boy and girl are picked for the Baby infant line and a boy and girl are chosen to represent The Kids, the clothing line for toddlers, pre- schoolers and elementary school children.
The tag line for last years event read as follows:
Does your baby’s giggle light up the room? Does your toddler say the cutest things? Does your child like to be a big helper? Kids and baby clothes are brighter than ever as begins its coast-to-coast search today for the brightest babies (ages four and under) and kids (ages five to 12) with its sixth annual North American Casting Call contest.
The children involved get their pictures uploaded to the companies site and public voting takes place. The large group gets narrowed down to semi-finalists and finalists and ultimately the 4 winners get chosen. The winners get….
some great prizes which include gift cards for The company as well as a photoshoot and a spot in their advertising and website.
2014 will bring the 8th annual infant, baby and child casting call with a new group of kids that will be chosen to adorn the companies website and take the role of being one of the cutest kids in the U.S.
The company is a huge clothing line which also includes other brands. The brand has over 14 billion in sales annually so being chosen to represent them is a really big deal. The baby modeling contest is very popular and many thousands of babies and kids get entered into it.
So do you think you have the next Baby Model? the superstar toddler that can melt your heart and everyone else’s?
Here are some tips to give your kids a better chance at the title of cutest kid:
- Take great photos! Do not upload a cellphone pic or anything that is only OK. Make sure you take lots of pics and use the BEST one.
- Keep it well lit.
- Make sure your child’s personality comes through.
- The contest is all about OTHERS loving the picture, not just you. It actually is a popularity contest.
- Wear comfy, casual clothes and don’t use costumes or large props that take away from your child.
By doing the above you are already ahead of the pack since so many parents upload dark, blur ry or irrelevant images that never win.
Yep, if you enter your child, your child has a chance to be featured in an ad like this one:
The winners get to take part in a very fun day of photos and they get to get dressed up in the cutest kids clothes furnished by some company. The ads are cheerful and embody the spirit of childhood fun as well as good fashion sense.
By the way, the company does have a weekly photo contest that is part of their Facebook page. Aspiring babies and toddlers can have their photos uploaded to the fan wall for a chance to be in the spotlight and baby model of the week on the brands page.
