A few weeks back I saw a tweet about the 2010 Parents Magazine Cover Contest and that they were accepting photo submissions from the public. As all parents of adorable kids, my first instinct was to post some pictures of Virj. I have never entered any such contests before because honestly I don’t believe it’s that simple to get selected, especially having some experience in the modeling industry. However, I had some time on my hands and thought it would be an interesting exercise. I was also curious about their marketing campaign around it. So, I went ahead and uploaded a couple of photos of Virj and one photo of us together. I was hesitant about the later but thought it might fit the parenting angle! I was right because that’s the one that got selected for the Reader’s Choice finals that leads up to the semis. Interestingly, the selection is based on voting using the Facebook “like” app. A good marketing move to engage more Facebook readers!
Anyhow, now I’m hooked and am looking forward to moving into the semi-finals and hopefully wining at the end, fingers crossed! So, please vote for us and HELP US WIN!!!! You’ve already seen the photo on this site once but I’m posting it again to refresh your memory 🙂
