Use of Professional Photos
We know you probably have some great photos of your CuteKid taken by a professional photographer. You can submit them, but our judges would actually prefer it if you didn't. Amateur pics can capture your kid's cutest moments and our pros know just what to look for. However, if you choose to submit a professional shot, please obtain written authorization from the photographer. We'll need this before any professional photo of a child can be named a winner or finalist.
The contest runs on the calendar month. Therefore, any photo entered into a contest from the first day of the month until midnight ET of the last day of the month will be entered into that month’s contest. Judging for our contests begins on the first day of the following month and winners are announced via email around the 15th of the following month.
How Voting Works
People's Choice is where YOU choose the cutest kids!
Share a photo with family & friends to get more votes. Remember your vote counts too, so don't forget to vote for your own CuteKid!
We encourage you to vote and share once each day. The photo with the most legitimate votes during the month wins. All votes are verified to ensure legitimacy. Also, 4 CuteKids with over 40 votes will be chosen at random as the runners-up.
All photos are eligible to be voted on, unless they are marked as "Private" in your member dashboard.
