Free And Fee Online Baby Contests Difference
by Teresa, The CuteKid™ Staff
There are two main types of online baby contests: those that offer the
service for free and those that charge a small fee. You might be thinking
why would I ever pay to enter my child in a baby photo contest when I could
do it for free. This is best illustrated by explaining the differences
between the two.
Some winners of free online baby contests
like those sponsored by Kelly and Regis or Good Morning America received cash
prizes as well as their picture on the cover of a national magazine. If your child
does win the cute baby photo contest they will receive instant
Unfortunately the photos of many babies are entered and the contest
is only held
annually. This greatly limits the chances of your baby winning. Plus these contests are
only for babies and toddlers.
Other free online baby contests just feature your kids photo on their website.
They allow viewers to vote on their favorites and the winner is determined by
tallying the votes.
Instead of professionals voting on the winner it is
determined by popularity of parents and relatives. These contests are great to
place on your childís resume but they donít provide your child with any exposure.
Online baby contests that require a fee also fall into two categories. The first
type is usually a fraud. Parents pay a large fee to enter the contest and then
never receive the benefits. Some companies promise to send a book with the kids
photo published in it, yet rarely deliver. If they do it doesnít mean that your
kids photo has been seen by anyone in the modeling business, just by those who
printed the book.
Other fee-based online baby photo contest are legitimate. As a parent choose a
cute baby photo contest that offers prizes in line with the cost. Choose a company
that has a solid reputation. Look for online baby contests that are judged by
professionals and not just parents.
