NEW YORK, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The deadline for Parents magazine's cover contest is June 19 at 10:59 p.m. CDT. Parents magazine's editors are encouraging proud parents to submit their cute baby pictures to the Parents Magazine Cover Contest now. Judges will select the cutest kid to appear on the cover of Parents magazine's November 2010 issue.
Parents magazine is looking for non-professional, unpublished photos of kids aged three months to six years old. Twenty semifinalists will be chosen, based on the criteria set forth in the Official Rules. Judges will then narrow the semi-finalists down to nine finalists, plus a Reader's Choice winner. These nine finalists and one Reader's Choice winner will travel to New York City for a professional photo shoot in August.
"There is only one more week remaining before our June 19 deadline, and we're hoping moms and dads will find those cute baby pictures or take new ones and enter our annual contest," said Dana Points, Parents magazine's editor-in-chief. "We're looking for photos that really reflect the child's personality and show him or her in a happy, playful mood. Parents can upload up to six pictures of each child."
After parents have uploaded their child's photos, they will receive an email the following week notifying them that their photo is ready for Reader's Choice voting. At that point, they can remind their family and friends to cast a vote for their child's photo every day for a week. The photo with the most votes each week will be deemed a Reader's Choice semi-finalist. On or around July 7, the 11 Reader's Choice semi-finalists from each week of the contest will be posted for a final round of voting to determine the one Reader's Choice winner.
To enter the Parents magazine cover contest, proud parents are invited to submit up to six cute baby pictures for free by June 19, 2010. Enter at Parents Magazine Cover Contest.
