CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - If you know an adorable baby, there's an opportunity for their first claim to fame. Children's Miracle Network is searching for America's Most Photogenic Baby. This event has raised more than $4 million dollars for Children's Miracle Network since 1993. Proceeds raised in Northeast Ohio benefit the Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital.
Children 5-years-old and younger are eligible. Here's how you can enter your baby in our area:
1) Register at www.photogenicbaby.com.
2) There is a $35 entry fee per category. This includes a professional photo shoot with a fashion photographer. Parents get to keep the photos when the contest is over.
3) Go to the Old Navy store in Mayfield Heights at Eastgate from June 10-12. Photographers will be there to take official entry pictures from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and from noon-5 p.m. on Sunday.
4) Photos of contestants will be on display for judging at www.photogenicbaby.com in July. There are four different categories: Precious, Comical, Beautiful, and Fashionable.
Winners from this contest have appeared in movies, commercials, national newspapers and magazines, on Broadway and even on Oprah. For a successful baby photo shoot, parents are advised to make sure the child is well rested and fed, bring a favorite toy or treat to distract the child, and most importantly—relax and have fun.
