American Baby Magazine Invites Proud Parents to Submit Pictures of Babies to
Online Photo Contest
Upload up to six current pictures of babies between ages 3 months to 24 months
Des Moines, IA (PRWEB) January 27, 2010 -- American Baby Magazine announced today that its online photo
contest is now officially open. Proud parents can upload up to six current photos of their babies between the ages
of three months and 24 months as of the date of entry. The five finalists of the American Baby Cover Contest will

April 9 and April 28. Approximately 10 days after that, the panel of judges selects five finalists, who are then
invited to New York for an American Baby photo shoot to take place in mid-May. On approximately June 25, the
