Our annual Halloween photo contest is finally here!

American Adoptions always loves seeing your kids dressed up in their Halloween finest, and we’re excited to share those creative costumes.

As always, our annual photo contest is open to anyone who has worked with American Adoptions — birth parents, adoptive parents and, of course, adoptees! Starting today, you can send in your submissions to be featured on our Facebook page. Winners will be announced in a few weeks on our blog and social media accounts.

Here’s how to enter:

  1. Email your favorite Halloween photo of you (birth parent) or your child(ren) to editors@americanadoptions.com. One photo per family, please!
  2. Title your email as “Photo Contest.”
  3. In the body of the email, please include your name, your children’s name(s) and ages. Example: John Smith, Age 2 – Parents: Robert and Jane Smith. You can also include a description of the photo, such as what your child is dressed up as.

Submissions are due by 5 p.m. CST on Monday, Oct. 18.

Once we receive all your submissions, we’ll post them in an album on our Facebook page. There, you and your friends can vote by “liking” your favorite photos. Please note: Comments or shares will not be counted.

Voting will close at 5 p.m. CST on Monday, Oct. 25. The winners’ photos will be shared throughout Halloween weekend on our blog, Instagram page and in our newsletter.

We will also be posting a video on YouTube of all the submissions after we announce the winner. Thank you for following us on Facebook and don’t forget to subscribe and turn on notifications (click the bell) on our YouTube channel so you’ll never miss a post. https://www.youtube.com/user/AmericanAdoptions

We look forward to your submissions. Good luck!
