Gerber Begins Annual Tradition

Gerber is beyond a shadow of a doubt the king of baby products. In the baby market, Gerber is recognized the same way as Mcdonald's is recognized in the fast food industry. The iconic 'Gerber Baby' is emblazoned on each and every one of their products.


Well, the time has now come once again for Gerger to find their new spokesperson or 'spokesbaby' in this case. Gerber recently announced that their annual 'Photo Search Contest' has officially begun and that the winner of the contest will become the company's new face for 2023.

Instructions also state that parents must submit a picture of themselves as well from when they were kids, specifically from when they were born and up to 10 years old. That's it, it's really that easy. Of course, the application also requires general information but that goes without saying. All other information regarding the contest may be found here.

For those wondering, the idea of sending in pictures of parents when they were younger with their kids is to compare if their child looks like them or not. You could also just have a goofy fun picture to send in.
