All photos will be visible by all contestants and visitors of the page, randomly.  The voting stars (or bars) are displayed prominently under each photograph. Entrants will be given an opportunity to enter their photograph only once.

During the period leading to a final vote on November 24th, 2011, entries will be displayed in the Photo gallery, after they are curated by Perinka contest staff, and visitors to the Facebook page site will be invited to vote for their favorite entry based on overall appearance of the child as shown in the photo(s), adherence to theme as expressed through the photo(s), and quality of photo(s). 

For each voting period, one (1) winner will be determined by highest average voting number, or ranking number, which can be a combination of the higest number of votes received or the higest ranking from the votes. In the event of a tie, a qualified panel of judges will determine the winner from among the tied entries based on photogenic appeal of the child.
