We believe the famous photo contest rules are going to be very similar this year with few minor changes if not exact same.

Now that we got the boring disclaimer stuff out of the way it’s time for the meats, the “good stuff”.
The grand prize winner will take home a whooping $50,000 USD cash awarded to only 1 winner. Hopefully, it’s you one of our visitors. And don’t you go thinking that this $50k cash must be use for your baby’s college funds. It can be but don’t have to. It’s not requires. But that’s not the end of the cash part yet.
Do you have to pay taxes on your winning? Most likely you will. But no worries, Gerber got you covered on that too. How about another extra $15,540 cash sound? That’s exactly what the 2015 Gerber baby contest winner got to help paid for the taxes.
And of course, it’s not require that you used it for that purpose. If you know how to get around the IRS then you can use it for something else. But our advice is pay your taxes. Don’t spoiled that fun by getting in troubles.
The fun stuff just getting started. Your baby will be featured in Gerber brand advertisements for the following year. The opportunity to appeared in Gerber ads is (not a guarantee). <<==⇐Gerber just has to add it in there just in case for some weird reasons it didn’t work out for them. That’s at least is what we think.
Any travel expenses that related to photo shoot for the baby and his or her parents are paid for too.
Last but not least, your baby get a $1,500 worth of clothing from Gerber Childrenswear.
So the actual estimated retail value awarded come to a grand total of $67,040.
New clothes, big cash, and fame, no wonder the Gerber baby photo contest is the biggest baby contest and made news each and every year. It is a big deal to win. The opportunities and possibilities are endless. Possible leading your child to baby modeling and baby beauty pageants.
Baby modeling agencies and agents are usually keep a close eye on contests like these. Or they might even be one of the judges in the events.
This is probably one of the best and cheapest way to have your child start of in the right path into the entertainment industries.
By winning the grand prize your baby is modeling for Gerber and getting lots of exposures to these model agencies.
Each milestones awarded with $3,500 in cash and $750 in clothing from Gerber Childrenswear. That’s a total retail value of $4,250. And the cash just like the grand prize, the 6 milestone winners were awarded in the form of a check also.
Here are the six milestone categories:
No purchase necessary to enter the Gerber contest but there are some requirements. And entry is totally free making it also the biggest FREE baby photo contest on the planet.
The only requirements are; you must be a legal resident of the 50 United States and District of Columbia who are at least 18 years old are parents or legal guardians of the child or children that is/are between the age of one day to 48 months old at the time of entering the contest.
And if you’re a Gerber employee then you should know already that you’re not supposed to participate in Gerber’s baby contest.
You can only submit one picture and that picture must be current. It must be taken within the last 30 days at the time of submitting to contest. So if you have a really cute picture of your baby at 4 months old, she’s now 6 months old and the contest is starting today then that baby photo is not eligible.
Professional pictures are not allowed. So don’t hire photographer to take photos. Do it yourself. When you spend the time to photograph your baby it’s fun and more rewarding anyway.
Photo collages which are 2 or more pictures that made into one main picture are not allowed. So don’t cut and paste pictures together it will be disqualified. Avoid as much photo editing as possible beside basic like resize, crop, convert file format, and maybe lighten the photo because it’s too dark. (More tips later)
You might have to convert the picture file into .jpg, .png, or .bmp format if it’s not so and file size cannot be more than 5 MB.
You must have all legal rights to the picture. Plus, the photo may not published before you submitted it to the Gerber’s photo contest. Make sure you own that picture and that you’re the legal guardian of the child that’s in the photograph then don’t submit or publish it anywhere else but Gerber.
Don’t even upload it to your Facebook page. (Just to be safe. Anything you upload to Facebook will be their properties.)
