QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

  1. I am a parent of twins, multiples or have children that fall within the same Milestone category, how do I enter my children?

    If you have multiples or more than one child that share the same Milestone, who you are entering from one Facebook account, enter your children in one photo submission within that Milestone category.

    If two parents or legal guardians have separate Facebook accounts, each parent or legal guardian can enter one of the two children individually from their Facebook account.

    Please be assured that all eligible photo submissions, both for individual children and siblings that share the same Milestones, will be equally considered for the Grand Prize and will be included in the Facebook voting for Milestone Prizes.

  2. Is it possible to enter the Gerber® Photo Search 2013 on my mobile phone?

    Yes you can! We have created the entry process for smartphones and iPhones. Simply find this app on Facebook, like us and enter as normal, or follow this link from your mobile phone: http://gerber.promo.eprize.com/photosearch
    We look forward to seeing your photos!

  3. What is the age limit for the Gerber® Photo Search 2013?

    Gerber® Photo Search 2013 is for children up to 48 months. Only recent photos will be accepted. They must have been taken within 30 days of submission in order to qualify. So if your child is currently a grade schooler, a photo taken years ago as a toddler would not be accepted.

  4. The Gerber® Photo Search 2013 application is not loading properly on my computer.
  5. If you’re having problems getting the application to load we recommend downloading the most recent version of Flash. Click here to download it:

  6. My photos are all over 5 MB in size. How can I resize them for entry in the Gerber® Photo Search 2013?

    If your photo is over 5 MB you can resize it on your own computer or you can search the web on how to resize an image. There are many third-party websites that can do it for you.

  7. Why is it taking so long for my photo to load?

    The time it takes to upload an image depends on the type of Internet connection you have. Please be patient while your photo uploads – it will be worth the wait!

  8. When I try to enter my child I click next and nothing happens. Why is this?

    You must adjust your photo to fit in the center of the frame and double check you have filled out all information fields (including selection of MILESTONE SYMBOLS).

  9. When will my child’s photo appear on the Gerber® website?

    All photos are reviewed individually before posting on the Gallery. As soon as your entry is approved, we’ll send you an email to let you know it’s been posted, which you’ll get about three working days after we receive your entry. If you don’t get an email within 48 hours, check your junk mail or SPAM. Your email program may not have recognized our address and filed it there.

  10. How do I find my child’s photo on the site?

    After your entry is approved, simply type in your child’s name or your entry ID number in the search field and you’ll be able to view your picture. Or log in and go to My Entries page to view a collection of all your submissions.

  11. Am I able to change my submission once it’s been approved?

    Once your photo submission has been submitted it cannot be changed or altered. Don’t worry; our judges are trained to recognize star quality in all types of photos!

  12. When will my child’s photo become eligible to receive votes? Why is there no “vote” button next to my child’s photo?

    You will receive an email to let you know voting has begun.

  13. Do I have to register to vote?

    You do not have to register to vote, but you must Like Gerber® on Facebook.

  14. How do I vote for my child’s photo?

    You will receive an email to let you know voting has begun.

  15. You must Like Gerber® on Facebook in order to vote. To vote from the Gallery, click the photo of child you want to vote for. You will be taken to that child’s photo page. Click on the green Vote button and you will receive notification that your vote has been counted. You can vote for one photo per Milestone per day.

    At the end of the voting period, one winner per milestone will be determined and featured on our Facebook page. You will get an email to let you know the voting period has begun.


  16. My daughter is a preschooler now, but I have the cutest picture of her playing with her food as a baby. May I enter her baby picture?

    Sorry, only photos taken recently qualify. Your picture must have been taken within 30 days of your submission. You can submit a cute picture of your daughter into the Preschooler category as long as it was taken within the appropriate timeframe.

  17. Does Gerber® choose winners or do consumers choose winners through voting?

    Votes count, but only in choosing the six Milestone Winners, so get your friends and family to vote for your child. In the event of a tie, a panel of judges will determine the Milestone Winner in question. A panel of independent judges will select the Grand Prize Winner from all eligible photo entries by January 15th.

  18. What are the judges looking for in picking the winning photos?

    Pictures will be judged on (1) visual appeal of the child in the photo (2) expressiveness of child in photo; and (3) consistency with Gerber’s heritage and mission.

  19. What are the prizes?

    One lucky winner, chosen by our independent judges, will take home a $50,000 cash prize, and could have their child featured in a Gerber® ad! Plus, six Milestone Winners—one photo with the most votes from each Milestone group—will receive a 32GB Apple® iPad® with Retina display and Wi-Fi/cellular capabilities, an Apple® iPad® Smart Case® cover, and a $150 Apple® iTunes® gift card. (Estimated value: $1,000)
