New Contest: Kid Pic of the Month

Want to see your kid in pictures? Or at least in the pages of Columbus Parent? Well, as of today, we are launching a brand new feature to put your kids' mugs on our pages! And one of them might even end up on our cover!

It's called "Kid Pic of the Month" and it's an expansion of our already hugely popular Win the Cover contest. Here's how it works:

Every month, you (a parent, relative or legal guardian at least 18 years of age) will be able to submit one photo of one child via our website From around the 15th of each month until around the 15th of the next month (depending on when the weekend falls), we'll take submissions. Then, for the next month after that, you'll be able to vote on your favorites. The photo that gets the highest number of votes is published in the next month's issue!

For example, from today until June 14, submit a photo. From June 14-July 15, all the photos submitted will be viewable online and vote-on-able. Whichever photo has the highest number of votes as of July 15 gets published in the August issue! (check the Official Contest Rules link on the bottom of the page for all the directions and relevant dates)

But, wait, there's more! Each month's winner is automatically a finalist in our annual Win the Cover contest, plus any photo submitted from now until Sept. 16 will be eligible for selection as a "Columbus Parent staff-pick finalist." A separate vote will take place for the Win the Cover contest and the winner of that will be photographed for our December cover.

Awesome, right? So get ready, get set and -!
