BabyGap / KidsGap 2015 auditions and photo contest

The Gap released the following statement about their annual baby gap photo contest via  a press release.

 Is your child amazingly awesome, brave, curious, confident, carefree, eager, fearless, funny, loving, loud, proud, blunt, thoughtful, honest, modest, kind, quirky, clever and cool? Are they wonderfully-naive-yet-independent, unstoppable and perfectly imperfect kids?

Today Gap is launching Casting Call 2015, the widely popular contest that celebrates kids being kids, by inviting parents to submit photos of their children for the chance to be featured in a GapKids or babyGap marketing campaign.

This year, as part of the submission process, parents can create a playful, animated video that captures their child’s unique personality and can be shared with friends and family to spread the word about the contest. Back by popular demand, parents can also encourage others to vote for their child in the finalist phase of the program, allowing the GapKids community to once again help determine the next face of the brand.

“Casting Call is one of our favorite programs at Gap and we think that it’s a favorite for parents around the world as well,” said Olivia Doyne, Senior Director of Global Marketing at Gap. “By celebrating kids and their individual personalities and interests, we hope to encourage them to always believe in their unique selves.”

Casting Call 2015 Submission Process
As part of the submission process, Gap is asking parents to submit one photo of their child between now and June 7, 2015. After a submission is processed, parents can make a personalized animated video with their child’s photo that is socially sharable. Details on where and how to enter can be found on www.gapcastingcall.com.

Entry Phase: From May 12 – June 7, 2015 parents can upload one photo of their baby (ages four and under) or child (ages five to 12) along with contact information. Submissions are accepted on www.gapcastingcall.com. Once processed, parents can make a personalized animated video with their child’s photo that is socially sharable. They can come back to see their child in the on-site gallery once their entry is approved.

Finalist & Voting Phase: From June 22 – June 29, 2015 a panel of Gap judges in each global region (North America [United States and Canada], United Kingdom [including Ireland], France, and Japan) will narrow down the field of submissions to 40 finalists per region; 10 per category (Kid Boy, Kid Girl, Baby Boy, Baby Girl). All finalists will receive a $100 Gap gift card and will be posted to the Community Voting website where consumers can vote for their favorites for each category. There will be one vote per day, per category allowed. Four finalists in each region with the highest number of votes and scores will be declared Grand Prize winners.

Winner Phase: In October 2015, the four winners of each region will be announced on the Gap digital channels. The winners will participate in a photoshoot taking place in their region and they will be featured in a Gap marketing campaign in Fall 2015, which could include channels like store windows and social media.

    My baby is full of expressions and is complimented everywhere we go. With and without clothes he looks so like a gentleman. Friends and family suggested we look into baby modelling. He is 4 months old and is already a star. Please contact me for pics or further details if need be. My baby will be a perfect candidate for you.
    Thank you

    My 5 month old grandson is such a happy and spunky little boy! His parent loves to dress him up and he loves it. He looks so professional and handsome, when he’s posed in his clothes! And his expressions corresponds with every outfit. How can I get him in the GAP KIDS catalogs, magazines, photo advertisements in the stores, photo shoots by your company and possible commercials? He is such a happy baby, with a great big smile for life and a happy bubbly personality! Thank you in advance.

    I’m trying to enter my son into the Gap Kids casting call for 2016. I went by your store in Tyson Mall and she told me I needed to send photos to Ford modeling agency. If someone can please email me with the proper procedures asap, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, Ray Pierce

      That may be good advise. Can’t hurt to send in photos of your son to a baby / kids modeling division. However, if you are looking for the GAP / Baby Gap casting call and online baby auditions for 2016, you may have to give it some time. Normally The Baby Gap auditions are held annually online and they will be announced when they begin.

    Sister in California said to get my 2.5 yr old daughter into kid modeling. Her friend has her son on Gap ads. So I want to know what to do or a contact number to get her seen. She’s beautiful, bright blue eyes, bright red / blonde hair. Has been trying to act, like she’s singing, holding objects like a toilet paper roll like a microphone. I am Alex n her name is Alexia.

  14. Andre, the next gap baby 2016

    I am looking for baby gap modeling tryouts and auditions. My son Andre is perfect. Everywhere we go, people say that he needs to do baby modeling and I want him to be a baby Gap model. He has dark, curly hair and the brightest green eyes you will ever see. I know that if he auditioned to be a Baby Gap model that he would get it. Everyone thinks he is the cutest baby they have ever seen. I am looking for modeling opportunities and commercials. He is 18 months but can smile, laugh and pose for the camera. We shop at the Gap Kids store and he loves to wear the clothes. 100s of people who say I should get him into baby modeling cannot be wrong. All we need is a chance to show the world how adorable my little boy is and they will all be sold on his charm.
