Parent or legal guardian must approve submission of the contestant’s photo(s). By submitting a photo, parent or legal guardian grants A Child’s Hope staff the right to publish submitted photo(s), child’s first name, city, and any captions submitted on A Child’s Hope website and/or marketing materials. Slight photo alterations may be made by our staff in order to fit properly on our site or email newsletters.
Our contest rules are intended to offer fair contests; all submitted photos have an equal opportunity of being scored by our industry judges.
Photos are judged with no discrimination towards gender, race, or age. All decisions are final.
Photos containing nudity or children depicted in a derogatory or dangerous position will not be accepted. A Child’s Hope staff reserves the right to refuse any photograph which they deem unacceptable.
If a professional photo is submitted to our contests, A Child’s Hope will not be held responsible for securing usage rights from the photographer. It is highly recommended that the parent or guardian receive rights to use the photo prior to contest submission.
We announce winners within approximately 15 days after we have selected the winning photos in each category. Winners receive notification via Facebook Direct message and/or email.
Our contests are void where prohibited by law. The contestants assume the total responsibility of knowing their local laws in regard to photo contests and are subject to any local, state, national, or international laws. A Child’s Hope accepts no responsibility for making these individual legal determinations.
Please ensure your information is completed accurately. A Child’s Hope accepts photos of children 0-18 years old.
