Our grand prize winning photograph (by Jennifer H.) featured a baby playing on the beach by the Mackinaw Bridge in Michigan. Jennifer was excited to receive a $150 gift certificate from diapershops.com (our Grand Prize Sponsor) as she is hoping to upgrade her stash! The two runners-up received $50 gift certificates from Babies in Bloom and Mama Momo.
Some interesting notes about the winning pictures:
- 8 featured boys, 4 featured girls.
- Half the photos were taken inside and half were taken outside.
- 4 of the pictures featured props – a wagon, a toy fire engine, a mobile, and fishing gear/boat.
- 1 picture featured siblings.
- 2 pictures showed babies in prefolds and covers. Those same two featured newborns.
- 2 babies wore hats in their photos.
- 4 pictures included water – a big lake, a little lake, a waterfall, and an ocean.
- 7 babies wore solid color diapers, 5 babies wore prints.
- ALL of the babies looked happy and comfortable in their real diapers!
Thanks to all who submitted photos and thanks especially to all of our sponsors who made the contest and calendar possible!
