2015 Cover Contest Finalists Announced

NYMetroParents is proud to announce the 8 finalists in the 2015 Kids Cover Contest, who are set to be professionally photographed at PhotoOp NYC in late June.

More than 1,200 entries were submitted for NYMetroParents 2015 Kids Cover Contest, with parents from all of our regions sharing cute pictures of their children for a chance to win a coveted spot on our magazines' cover as well as the grand prize, a $500 gift card from Pear Tree Greetings

Editors reviewed every entry and picked their favorites, as the official rules indicate, “based equally upon the criteria of personality, charm, and marketability as a child cover model, as conveyed by their photo.” All finalists win $25 gifts from Appaman, two New York CityPASS ticket books worth $114 each, plus inclusion in a future print issue.

Without further ado, here are the finalists of the 2015 Kids Cover Contest!
