How Do You Enter Your Baby in the Gerber Baby Model Search?

To enter your baby in the annual Gerber Baby Photo Contest, create a MyGerber account at and submit a recent photo of your baby to the online photo gallery during the contest period. Photo submission and voting occurs in the fall each year.

Gerber hosts an annual photo contest to select a new Gerber Baby each year. In order to be eligible, babies must be younger than 48 months. Parents are eligible to submit one photo per child, which must have been taken no more than 30 days prior to submission. For families with multiple eligible children, parents can submit a group photo, or if each parent has a MyGerber account, they can each submit a photo for a different child. No individual child can be entered more than once.

Each entrant receives a unique ID number that is used to locate the baby's photo in the gallery and helps friends and family during the voting process, which begins once the submission period ends.

Although the contest features public voting, the grand prize winner is chosen by a panel of judges, and additional prizes are awarded to the winners of public voting. The official Gerber baby receives a substantial cash prize and photo opportunities throughout the following year.
