2010 Babies and Contest!

First post of the year! I normally don't do pictures in the winter, mainly because I don't have a studio but I have a great pair of boots now that actually keep my feet warm. So I'm all good. there's so much going on this year! For starters, I'm pregnant! this little baby was planned and we're thrilled to be expecting him or her around August 28th. :)

My print house hosts a huge baby & child contest every year from March to June. Submissions from 2010 are only accepted and can be of children under the ages of 12 only. I take the pictures and submit them (with permission from the client). I can submit pictures for the first round between March 1st and March 21st. Second round, April 1st - April 21st. Third, May 1st - May 21st. And fourth, June 1st - 21st. Voting is held following each month's submission deadlines, and winners of each round are chosen, then one final grand prize winner is chosen at the end. The categories are color, black & white or Sepia, Humorous, and Special Needs. If your picture is chosen as grand prize winner, you will receive from me a gift certificate for $1,000. There are prizes for first, second, third places, and two Honorable Mention places. Pictures are chosen out of ALL photographers, not from each. Voting is done by photographers who go through the print house (we get unlimited votes to cast). So hurry up and book your appointment today for your chance to win!
