Children have a unique way of looking at life. They are untouched by the opinions and ideas and preconceived notions that plague adults. This and the fact that their existence is a source of happiness to themselves and to those around them make them adorable! That we are able to hold these moments frozen in time with photos and video indeed makes the experience sweeter. Baby photos are a beautiful sight to behold. Photographers have little to add, other than capture the right moment. All the essence lies in the baby picture itself!
The internet has a lot to offer, with sites holding online baby photo contests to allow a large number of endearing baby pictures to be posted online into the contest, which is then judged by an expert photographer to crown one entry as the cutest baby picture. These baby photo contests may be held every other month, to facilitate a large audience to participate. The winner is given a horde of gifts such as cash prizes, holiday packages, and free subscription to baby products and sometimes, as is seen at the Great American online Baby Photo Contest, a lump sum of almost ten thousand dollars in the form of a government bond as an educational investment.
So these photo contests are not only a means to catapult your little angel to fame, but also ensure that, in the process, the path to secure a bright future is opened. Many of the companies delivering baby products too have dabbled in these photo contests to forge a long term bond with the target audience, for example, companies like Huggies and those like Kodak too! They offer exciting prizes to the winners of such baby photo contests while also providing the child a foray into the world of modeling. Some of the advertising agencies holding the baby photo contests may claim exclusive copyrights to the baby picture once it is selected as the winner. We need to be careful to ensure that the interests of the baby are not harmed in this context.
That said, these baby photo contests might be a good platform to showoff the little angel and win enticing prizes, and to avail wonderful opportunities for your kid’s future, like educational investments, etc for the future.
So all we need to get started is our baby and a good quality camera, and of course, for the baby to remain still and give a rare smile or look!
