So you think your kid is cute? | Virginia Beach Photography Contest

March has been an extremely busy month for me -  you may have noticed that my blog posts have been few and far between!  But, I want to make up for that by announcing a BIG contest - the first Kimberlin Gray Photography  "Cutest Baby and Child Contest"!

The Details

How do I enter my cute kid?

*Send a non-professional photo of each child to with the subject line CUTE KID CONTEST.

*If you wish to enter more than one child, send an individual photo for each.  (If you win, the session will include all of your children, so don't worry about picking between them!)  However, you'll be limited to two votes per day, so it may be a tough call if you enter them all!

*In the e-mail, please provide your child(ren)'s name(s), age(s), your name, e-mail address, and contact phone number. (This information will not be published; it is simply for my record keeping in case you are the big winner!)

*Ages:  Children ages 0-9 are permitted in this contest; photos must have been taken in the past 6 months (give or take!)

*HINT:  Try to get a close up so that we can see all those adorable features!  Pretty eyes, sweet little lips, etc. are always striking.

What is the deadline for entries?

*You can start sending entries today, Monday, March 22nd and they must be received by  Sunday, March 28th at 11:59pm EST.

How do I win?

*Voting will begin Monday, March 29th and YOU will decide who wins!  That's right, there will be a poll open to everyone --  you, your family, and your friends will all be allowed to vote!  Voting will end on Friday, April 2nd at 11:59pm EST. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, April 6th, 2010.

How do I vote?

There are two ways to vote each day:

1.  A poll will be posted here on the blog.  Each photo will be assigned a number and you will be able to vote for your favorite photo once a day.  (The poll is set up to limit voting from each computer…after 24 hours, it will reset, and you can vote again).

2.  An album will be set up on my Facebook Fan Page.  (Become a FAN if you aren't already in order to vote!)  The album will be called "CUTE KID CONTEST" and you will simply comment on the photo that you want to vote for.  It can be as simple as "This one's my vote!".  Comments are dated and only one per day is permitted from each voter.  NOTE:  Comments posted to the Wall will not be counted! They must be entered on the photo inside the album!

*So, the photo with the most combined votes at the end of the week will win - and it's up to you to get all your friends and family members to vote, too!  Send them a link to the blog and the Facebook page!  You can share it with them by clicking the "share" buttons under the post to make it even easier!  If they FAN me, they'll see automatic reminders in their News Feed on FB, too! :)
