To enter a photo, just tag your Instagram photo with the hashtag #cpkidpic and then be sure to also include a contact email or Twitter handle by which we can contact you. Or post the photo to your Twitter account using the #cpkidpic hashtag. From either place we'll be able to collect the photos that are tagged and we'll pop them into an album on our Facebook and Pinterest pages.

Haven't jumped on the Instagram or Twitter bandwidth-wagon? Then send the photo as an email attachment to contact@columbusparent.com. Haven't jumped on the Instagram or Twitter bandwidth-wagon? Then send the photo as an email attachment to .

On the 10th of each month, our staff will select one winner and notify that person, and then that photo will appear in the next issue. All photos entered will automatically be in the running for our annual Win the Cover contest (the winner appears on our December issue's cover).BUT BE SURE TO ALSO PROVIDE US WITH A TWITTER HANDLE OR EMAIL ADDRESS WHEN YOU SUBMIT!

A few helpful hints: Don't obscure a child's face. PLEASE keep it to one child per photo (we can only select one winner). Only one submission per month will be accepted (and it will be the first one you send). And please be a resident of the central Ohio area (seriously, we just got one last month from three time zones away).
