This Article Was Written by: Bridgett
It is not surprising that every parent thinks he or she is the proud parent of the cutest kid. Considering your offspring is a representation of you, it would be extremely bizarre for you to think anything less. Needless to say, if your kid truly is the cute among all his or her peers, then others should be aware of the fact as well. You may have to enter them in a baby picture contest.
Does Everyone Call Your Child “the Cute Kid”?
Your youngster would have to be the one child that everyone who encounters always refers to as the “gorgeous or “adorable” one. Of course, if you live down south, your youngster is the kid everyone labels as pretty using long drawn-out enunciation. Perhaps it is that lovable little nose or those darling blue eyes. Who knows what makes your child so endearing? The simple fact is that he or she is absolutely beautiful. Now that everyone in your family and in your circle of friends knows it, it is about time that you share your young person with others.
Introducing Your Child to Others
Thanks to today’s computer technology and the presence of social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, there is no shortage of means for introducing your child to the world. With just a few minutes of your time, you can use social media networks to allow people all over the planet to see the lovely kid you call your own. At the same time, if you are looking for a place to promote your kid to the modeling world and earn great prizes at the same time, then your best route is to check out kid photo contests online.
Online Kid Photo Contests
There are numerous online photo contests for children. A quick, internet search for the above phrase, “online photo contests for children” produces hundreds of millions of useful results. With all of these options, you have practically an unlimited number of places where you can show the world that you really do have the cute kid. Best of all, you can enter as many of these competitions as you like from the privacy of your own home.
Not all Photo Competitions are Alike
While photo competitions for children are quite numerous, they vary in many ways including quality, requirements, entrance fees, and prizes. Before you enter a kid’s photo contest, you need to be certain of several facts:
1) Is the contest legitimate? There is no point in wasting your time and energy on a scam competition which will offer you no benefits at all. Worst case, they could take your hard-earned money and provide you with nothing in return or these scam contests could obtain confidential information which could put you in danger of identity theft.
2) Are the prizes of good quality? Bear in mind that while the free competitions may seem ideal, the awards are typically quite small in value; on the other hand, the photo contests which require some type of entry fee, generally offer sizable awards. You should definitely read the details regarding the prizes of each of the contests you are considering. While winning any competition can be flattering, the joy of winning a $20 gift certificate to some department store is bound to be less than the joy that comes from winning a huge prize like a $25,000 college tuition fund.
3) Who are the judges of the photo competition? Are they well-known people in the modeling and photography industries or simply individuals who merely act as judges as a part-time hobby? Not everyone is qualified to be an authority on children’s’ pictures so you should make it a point to learn about the contest jurors.
Knowing the answers to questions like these will be instrumental in helping you select the best photo contest for your child.
How to Select the Best Photo of Your Child
To begin with, you should only select a photo that will allow the judges to clearly see your child. Dark and blurry pictures are unacceptable, and by using them, you literally kill your chances of having your youngster advance in the photo competition. The photos which win the top contests are the ones which are uniquely creatively yet natural. Themed pictures are a great idea when they are related to the season of the year in which you are submitting them. For instance, sending in a picture of your young child in a pumpkin costume will probably not capture the attention of the judges in a photo contest that places in February.
These are just a few of the things you should know as a parent of the cute kid, especially if you are interested in exploring a career in entertainment or modeling for your child. Being aware of the ins and outs of online photo contests will make the beginning portion of your journey much easier.
