Katy's Cutest Kids Contest! 
Some of Our Past Cutest Kids Winners! 
Here's what we like in your photos! 
  • Colorful, vibrant, professional (preferred)  

  • Looking at the camera, eyes showing

  • Childlike appearance (not too grown up looking) 

  • Bright backgrounds

  • Facial and eye beauty

  • Combed hair and clean face 

  • Photo may be zoomed in for close up shot

We don’t like subdued colors, black and white shots, sepia, or other special effects that look too artsy. Seasonal photos (for example at Christmas) usually won’t work either.  
Winning Photo Receives $200 and is named our Cover Star! 

What is Katy’s Cutest Kid Cover Contest?
This is Katy Magazine’s annual cover contest where we view hundreds of photo submissions of local children! We showcase one winner as Katy’s Cutest Kid. Several finalists and honorable mentions will also be chosen and featured. 


Because we are digital, you may submit your photo for the February issue as late as January 16.


The winning photo submitter will receive $200. This amount is paid to the submitter of the photo unless otherwise indicated. The winning photo will be showcased as our main cover image all month long.


This contest is for ages 2 to 8 years old. But you may send photos of younger or older children as well for consideration in other features, Katy Cuties or special departments.


Child must live in the Katy ISD boundaries.


Parents or photographers may submit photo here. 

Choose up to THREE PHOTOS 

Please include info about the child such as name, age. 

Please include photo credit if you would like it noted.
