Each summer, we run an annual portrait contest called Smile for a Cure to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. For a $5 donation, you get a free 5×7 and a chance to enter your child’s portrait in one of the 3 age groups in our contest (babies, toddlers, and big kids).


This July, $3,500 was raised for this wonderful cause. A big “thank you!” to all who entered!


Our judges have selected the top image per studio in each category, totaling in 30 finalists. 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 it’s up to YOU to select the final three! Online voting is open now through Monday, September 24, 2012. One vote is allowed per household. Once voting is closed, and the top three are determined, the panel of judges will rank them, choosing a first and second runner up, as well as a Grand Prize Winner.




Good luck to all the finalists!
