I hope to not discourage people from entering all contests - again there are some reputable sites that are trustworthy. That said, there are just as many sites that are not and it requires your best judgement. I just wanted to raise a red flag and to give some answers to why people were not helping out and to throw a note of caution.
I myself tried to help out a friend and vote for her son to win a contest a couple of years back. I submitted an email address as required in order to be able to help out my friend and vote. The next morning when I came to check my email, I was bombarded with over spam emails! The sad part was that there was a box to check if you wished not to be contacted or solicited to from outside parties and it didn't work!!!
I still get spam from it today. It's annoying and I wouldn't wish it even on my worst enemy not that I have one, but that's not the point.
I don't want anything bad to happen to any of you gals and if I have info that can be helpful or useful to others, I want to not hoard the info but rather share.
Congrats to the winners from the legit sites, I sincerely mean that. Hopefully someday soon there will be a way to police the others to protect the innocent. Best wishes to all. We entered the Gerber too: The one that starts July right? Good luck, and I understand we can't vote for ourselves so if you send me the link I'll vote for you, and you could return the favor: Yes the gerber starts either July 5th or July 9th I forget which because I also entered the parents magazine contest.
I definitely agree though most contests are scams I entered one that asked everyone who voted to enter not only and email address but a phone number as well!

I just think this would be fun to do, regardless of the outcome. I do not have a baby, but I would be reluctant to enter my imaginary baby in any cute-kid contests because I don't think that a baby is capable of giving informed consent to that kind of My mom and grandma entered pictures of me into "cutest baby contests" when I was a baby. They were not online obviously, this was ; I think they were in places like the mall, sears I actually won a couple and I think my parents got a few hundred dollars.

If you really back the cuteness of your kid, and you want to do something about it, then you should OK, thanks for the replies. I will keep in mind that that anyone who is asking me to pay money to enter is likely a scam. I'm not looking to join a modeling agency, or shop my kid around.
I am not looking to make this a career for him or me, or to turn him into a child model, or to do this in any sort of serious way. I don't care if there is any money or prizes to be won. I am not going to bring my son to professional photographers and agents and the like.
I am not going to take him to beauty pageants. Hopefully this clears some things up. I was hoping to find information about possible sites online where you send in a photo or two of your baby, and people vote on the cutest baby. I thought other people might have done something like this in the past, and might have suggestions as to where to look, or things to avoid, and similar information. Can't you just make up a throwaway email address and phone number purely for the purpsoe and use those to enter your baby in those contests?
Not entirely sure why spam has to be a problem here I'm not worried about the email address, but I assumed for these things in order to win they would contact you through mail or phone, which means using a fake number or address is not an option. Many, if not most women's magazines I sometimes browse through in waiting rooms have a section at the back with "baby of the week" photos - i.
