Starting now, you can vote for your favorite photo

And now it's time for Phase Two of our new Kid Pic of the Month contest! Starting now, you can vote for the photos that have been submitted during the last month. Just go to to cast your ballot for one of the 34 photos that we received. We'll collect votes until July 15: The photo that receives the highest number of votes will be published as the winner in our August issue, and the child in that photo also becomes an automatic finalist in our annual "Win the Cover" contest.

At the same time, though, we now begin collecting submissions for the next Kid Pic contest (whose winner appears in the September issue). From now until July 15, you can submit one photo of one child (as long as you are that child's parent, guardian or a relative at least 18 years of age). Go to to submit a photo.
