Good Morning America & Babytalk Launch The Search For America’s Most Beautiful Baby
Babytalk Magazine and Good Morning America announced the launch of the 2010 Babytalk/GMA Digital Cover Contest today. The lucky baby winner will appear on the December/January 2011 cover of Babytalk magazine, and take home a $1,000 gift card from JCPenney!
Between May 18 and July 15, 2010, Babytalk will accept photos online at Parenting.com/Babytalk of all babies between 4 and 24 months on July 15, 2010.
“Our annual Cover Contest is consistently Babytalk’s most popular program, year after year,” said Babytalk editor-in-chief Ana Connery. “All babies are beautiful, but we’re looking for that one special photo that just pops right off the screen – a baby full of personality who has a certain something that makes our readers ‘oooh’ and ‘ahhhh!'”
By late July 2010, the top 64 Cover Contest entrants will be revealed on Good Morning America Digital, and will be narrowed down each week to reveal the top eight semi-finalists in early August. The eight semi-finalists will each receive an all-expense-paid trip with their families to New York City for a professional photo shoot in September. From the photos taken at the shoot, three finalists will be selected to appear on Good Morning America Digital where visitors will vote to choose the winning baby.
The two finalists will each receive a $250 gift card from JCPenney, and the five semi-finalists will each receive $100 JCPenney gift cards. All eight semi-finalists will appear in photo galleries on Parenting.com/babytalk and online at Good Morning America Digital, as well as in a feature spread in the December/January 2011 issue of Babytalk.
New to Cover Contest this year will be Parenting.com‘s “Baby of the Week,” where visitors to the site will vote for one Cover Contest entrant to be named the Baby of the Week. Upon entry, families will receive social media promotional tags to encourage friends and family to vote their little one to the top. The weekly winners will be featured on Parenting.com/Babytalk as well as on Good Morning America Digital.
To enter, for more information or for contest rules visit Parenting.com/Babytalk, or mail in a photo with the official entry form found in the June/July issue of Babytalk. No black and white or professional photos will be accepted.
Contest ends July 15, 2010.
