It’s that time again, the Baby Gap and Kids Gap open casting call for baby models and cute kids is on now.
As before, The Gap is looking to cast baby models and children. Babies, children and toddlers between the ages of newborn and 4 years old can be entered into the BabyGap model search. Kids ages 5 to 12 may enter the the GapKids model search.
Every year the GAP clothing company runs a baby model talent search & photo competition. The online baby, toddler and kids model search is asking parents to upload photos of their adorable youngsters. The company is looking for kids and babies of all ethnicities to feature in the GAP catalog. The 2016 BabyGAP and GAPKids model auditions just kicked off. Once submissions close, parents will be able to see the approved photos online. The Gap casting directors will then pick the winners. Baby photos being entered will not automatically appear in the gallery. Photos of the kids in the model search will need to be approved by staff which may take one or two days. Those that make it into the gallery will be emailed with details. If your child’s photos are selected for the next round, parents will be emailed. Those in line to win the grand prize will be notified through email and snail mail between mid June and the Beginning of July 2016.
