Baby Gizmo Holiday Photo 2013 Contest


Holiday Photo Contest

I know we haven’t done a photo contest in a long time but we thought we are definitely due for one.

Holidays create the best photo opportunities!  So, we have teamed up with our sponsor, Target, for a Holiday Photo Contest!  What mom (or dad!) doesn’t absolutely love Target, right?!? Plus, with their Holiday Price Match, Cartwheel and Target REDcard Rewards, you can shop with confidence knowing that you will pay the lowest prices at Target throughout the holiday season.

So, who wants to win a $150 Target gift card?!? We have THREE up for grabs to help 3 lucky winners finish (or start!) their holiday shopping!

Whether you are visiting Santa, decorating the tree, opening presents, or celebrating Hanukkah, there are picture opportunities everywhere during the holiday season! Plus, you know us – you can even dig out a picture from last year, we won’t tell!

Any photo that shows holiday spirit is fair game!  We love creativity!  It doesn’t have to be a standard cute or perfect picture.  It’s almost better if it isn’t! Take a look at our 2010 winner HERE. We are still lovin’ on that photo!

Have a great shot of all your kids completely losing it on Santa’s lap?  Or maybe you have that dreaded family picture where your whole family dressed up in matching holiday outfits and did some silly pose?

It doesn’t have to be funny.  It can be sweet too.  New baby asleep in Santa’s arms?

The sky is the limit with this one.  It just has to be a holiday picture.  Pictures with Santa.  Santa visit gone horribly wrong.  Matching holiday family outfits.  Christmas morning.  Hanukkah celebration.  Holiday portraits.  Playing in the snow.  It can just be your kids or your whole family.
