Now begins the next phase of our new Kid Pic of the Month contest.

Now begins the next phase of our new Kid Pic of the Month contest - the voting to determine which user-submitted photo will be published in our August issue. From May 15-June 14, we accepted submissions at ColumbusParent.com/kidpic, and from June 14-July 15, you can vote at ColumbusParent.com/kidpicvote for the photo that you think should be the winner. The photo that gets the highest number of votes is published in the August issue and will also become an automatic finalist in our annual "Win the Cover" contest!

At the same time, though, submissions for the September issue winner have begun and also will continue until July 15. Basically, it's a rolling contest going on every month now.

So remember to vote at ColumbusParent.com/kidpicvote and submit photos at ColumbusParent.com/kidpic. And pick up the August issue to see who our first winner is!
