the 2011 contestants! | chicago children’s photographer

FIRST, we are so excited to announce that we raised $3640 for the leukemia research program at Children’s Memorial Hospital!  That’s almost double last year’s amount, and we had a total of 114 children participate.  Thank you to each and every child for being a part of our most successful fundraiser yet!  More importantly, thank you SO much for helping to raise money for such an important cause.

The best image of each child has been selected and put into an online gallery – they are off to the judges for the tough decisions to be made – Cutest (for baby and big kid), Scariest and Most Original! We hope to have the winners ready to announce by the weekend.

You can view the link here in the meantime: 2011 Halloween Costume Contest.  (Once the link loads, a slide show will begin to play.  You can mouse to the bottom of the page and a menu will come up which allows you to pause the slide show, email the link to others, etc.)

We will be posting the images on the jookie facebook page as well, and…. having one more contest!  It’s the People’s Choice Award!  All you have to do to participate is send your friends and family to the jookie facebook page to vote on their favorite costume.  ONLY ONE VOTE PER PERSON. To vote, simply “like” your favorite image.  Voting ENDS Saturday, November 5th at 3 pm.  You don’t have to be a fan of the page to vote – but please “like” our page if you actually like us, of course!

Our prizes (announced here) are spread out among the five prize baskets. So there’s one more chance to win!  Get your friends and family voting for their favorite costumed cutie.

Happy Halloween!!
