*** Cover Kids Contest Winners from last year are not eligible to win this year.

*** By uploading a cover to the Cover Kids Contest, your state that you have the legal rights to use the photo and that it is not copyrighted by another party (photographer, studio or agency).

*** Please choose the category that your child will be in at the END of the contest (June 7).

*** Photo must be current… no photos over 1 month old please.

Deadline for entries has been extended to June 7, 2013! Finalists will be revealed on our website and in the July 2013 print edition; parents will be notified by email. Public voting runs July 1 – 12 ending at 11:59 p.m. Each registered user is allowed one vote per age category, per IP address. Individuals suspected of unethical voting practices will be subject to disqualification.

The child who receives the most votes in each of the four age categories will be named a Cover Kid for that age category. Editors will select one additional Wild Card Winner from a finalist in one of the four categories.

In the event of a tie within an age group, both names will be put in a hat and the winner will be chosen at random. Children of employees and independent contractors of DayCom Media, Inc., are not eligible to participate.


Cover Kid winners will appear on the cover of Cincinnati Family and NKY Family magazines or their supplement publications during the course of the next year. Parents of winning Cover Kids will be contacted within two business days (via email) for confirmation purposes and then again 30 days later with a tentative schedule of when their child may have their magazine photo shoot. Please keep in mind this is tentative and subject to change based on the editorial needs of the publication.

Our photo shoots are typically scheduled between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Mon – Fri. If for any reason your child cannot complete his/her cover shoot and we are unable to obtain a usable cover photo, DayCom Media, Inc. reserves the right to schedule one re-shoot at a later date. In the event we are unable to obtain a cover photo during a re-shoot, we reserve the right to cancel any further obligation to a cover shoot. We request ample flexibility in scheduling cover shoots as needed.
