Our judges have selected the finalists for our 2011 Smile for a Cure Portrait Contest! One child per category, per studio was selected by a non-partisan panel of judges (24 finalists total.) All will receive a gift card to Portrait Simple for at least $100. If they make it to the top 3, they’ll win a $500 or $1,000 gift card instead!
Now its up to YOU to select the final three! Online voting is open now through Thursday, September 1, 2011. One vote is allowed per household.
Once voting is closed, and the top three are determined, the panel of judges will rank them as follows:
Grand Prize Winner: recieves a $1,000 Gift Card to Portrait Simple and a cover shoot for BaySateParent Magazine
