These are some of the major changes with the Gerber Baby Contest this year.

What's still the same?

A lot still the same but here's the major stuff that are still the same.

1. The Grand Prize is still at $50,000 cash with the opportunity to feature on Gerber brand ads.

2. Gerber still required that you're 18 or older, a legal guardians of the child(ren) in the photo and a legal resident of the 50 United States, District of Columbia, or Puerto Rico.

3. Age requirement is still the same. Only babies between 1 day to 48 months old are eligible to participate in this contest.

4. As for photo, it must not be taken more than 30 days old at the time of submission.

5. No purchase or sign up for anything to participate. It's a free baby photo contest.

Bottom line:

2017 got more prizes but the prizes are not as big.

Examples:

There are a total of 12 winners plus 1 grand prize winner.

Grand prize still get $50,000 cash and opportunity to be on Gerber ads but no longer have that extra $1,500 clothing from Childrenswear.

The 12 Incremental Prize are smaller too. Milestone winners last year got $3,500 plus $750 clothing from Gerber Childrenswear.

6 Incremental winners for the "Giggles and Wiggles" theme are only going to receive $500 cash, a year of Purina products which turn out to be 60 coupons that which worth $10 each and finally a year of supply of Gerber products which also 60 coupons each worth $10.

As for the "Best Dressed Baby" theme Incremental, there will be 6 winners that going to receive $500 cash, $250 code to redeemed at gerberchildrenswear.com, and finally a year of supply of Gerber products in form of 60 coupons that worth $10.00 each.

Still not a bad for a free baby photo contest that doesn't required much to enter. And don't forget it still is the biggest baby contest around.
