MetroFamily Magazine’s Cover Kids Search is here again! Every fall MetroFamily Magazine searches locally for kids with big smiles and bright personalities to grace our monthly magazine covers. While we love to see those bright smiles, our event is also about finding kids with big hearts who desire to make our community an even better place to live. We’re looking for kids
between the ages of 4 and 12, and we’ll select one child to represent each age category and a sibling category on our covers in 2024.
To enter into the Cover Kids Search, simply upload a photo, complete the about me section, and submit the $10 entry fee from July 17-Aug. 31, 2023. Your entry fee includes a virtual swag bag with great prizes, activities and coupons.
MetroFamily Insiders receive the first Cover Kids Search entry for FREE ($10 discount)! Click here to learn more and sign up today.
Engage with your family and friends to ask for votes on your image to make it to the final round beginning September 1 – September 10. Finalists will undergo a virtual interview with our Personality Panel. One winner from each category will be selected for a professional cover photo shoot and announced in our January MetroFamily Magazine issue.
- The chance to star on one of MetroFamily’s covers. Cover Kids will enjoy a fun photo shoot with our talented family lifestyle photographer, FotoArts Photography. Your cover photo shoot includes hand-picked outfits and accessories to make you feel like a superstar. Cover Kids Winners will receive a high-resolution image of their selected cover, a pdf of their full cover with image and text overlay, an optional photo gallery for up to 10 images (for an added fee), and 20% discount on future Family Photo Package. Submit your child or sibling photo by the deadline of August 31 to enter our Cover Kids Search.
- All entries receive a virtual swag bag full of downloadable activities, coupons, and admission tickets to some of OKC’s best family-friendly venues. Be sure to take advantage of these money-saving offers from our generous partners! Take photos of your family enjoying these venues and tag them with the hashtag #OKCFamilyFun.
- A great head start on your holiday or birthday card! Cover Kids will receive the digital file of your child’s photo, which makes for a great holiday or birthday card! Cover Kids also receive photography package discounts to expand your future photoshoot.
- Zoom Interviews with an engaging local personality panel. The “virtual interview” portion of Cover Kids Search is really just a one-on-one conversation with a community member who will be thrilled to meet your child. Kids get an opportunity to introduce themselves and talk about the activities they enjoy, a great learning experience to present themselves to an audience who’s rooting for their success. Whether kids are outgoing or a bit shy, our panelists will make them feel right at home.
- An impactful opportunity to serve your Oklahoma City community. Our Cover Kids stars serve as ambassadors to the community and will get together during the year, either virtually or in-person, to participate in service projects to benefit local nonprofit organizations.
We can’t wait to meet your cuties! Submit your child’s photo by the Aug. 31 deadline.
