iPhone App To Find Next Child Model

As parents, we compare our children to others, and 99% of the time we are biased over what they do and how they look. For some of us, me included, we wonder how nice it would be to see our sons or daughters modelling for a well known kiddies clothing catalogue. With the help of a new iPhone app, this is now possible.

If you own an iPhone handset, and feel the time has come for you to send in those drop dead gorgeous pictures of your kiddies, then now you can, by uploading them onto clothing retailer “Gap’s” website, for it’s annual “babyGap and Gap Kids Casting Call contest”. The new app will enable users to enter their 0-10 year-olds into the competition. Four winners will be picked out to feature in the company’s babyGap or GapKids catalogues. Lauren at Mashable reported that in November, twenty finalists will be sent to San Francisco to have their picture professionally taken.

For anyone interested in entering on their mobile app, the deadline date will be October 24. Once registered, a simple procedure of entering the child’s details will be needed.

In 2009, Gap saw an amazing 1 million participants enter and are hoping to increase this figure in 2010. It seems that they are pulling out all the stops with social media campaigns, and offering plenty of discounts via location-based sites such as Foursquare, Loopt and Groupon.
