THANKS SO MUCH TO ALL WHO ENTERED!
Would you like your child to be on our cover? We’ve got all the information you need for this year’s Cover Kid Contest listed below. Now it’s up to you to submit your child’s application. Register and enter below!
All children who are entered into our Cover Kids Contest will be judged by a panel of professionals from top Atlanta modeling agencies. Contestants will be scheduled for individual photography at a Macon studio in March for judging purposes at no additional cost to you. Only photos made at this photo shoot will be considered by our Atlanta modeling agency judges. From the resulting photos, each judge will choose 20 finalists. Points of the finalists will then be tallied, and the finalists with the highest component scores will be announced as the Cover Kid winners.
Each WINNER must be available for a second assigned professional cover shoot when notified. Winners will be contacted by the photographer with an assigned date and time within 12 months from the close of the 2018 Cover Kid Contest. The judges will also be looking for kids for possible modeling jobs. (For more information and contest rules, see below.)
