Cutieville reserves the right to review and approve or reject, in its sole and absolute discretion, each application.  Upon acceptance of your application by Cutieville, you will be registered as a Presenter on the Site.


As described more fully in the Cutieville Privacy Policy,

Your personal and contact information will NEVER be publicly available on or through the site.    


Each Contest features Photos of Participants.  Users may vote for their favorite Photos.  

Each Contest will be announced on the Site and such announcement will include the date and time when votes will start to be accepted and the date and time when no more votes will be accepted (the “Contest Termination Date”).

The Photo that receives the most votes as of 11:59 pm Eastern Time (New York, USA) on the Contest Termination Date of the respective Contest (the “Contest Expiration”) will, within 2 weeks after the Contest Expiration, name the winner and award the Prize which was designated for that Contest.

Subject to the Rules of Eligibility, Photos from an expired Contest that do not win are automatically eligible for  the succeeding Contest. Once approved by Cutieville, your profile and Presentation will be available on the Site for Participants to browse or search by various criteria.


Photos may be submitted only by the
Parent of the Participant

We may request such verification as we deem reasonable and necessary to establish that relationship and in the event you do not provide such verification or we, in our sole discretion, determine that such verification is inadequate or that its authenticity is questionable, the person submitting the Photos as well as all Photos submitted by that person shall be ineligible for the Contest and such person may, in the sole discretion of Cutieville, be temporarily or permanently banned from the Site.

Participants must be 12 years old or under at the time of submission to a Contest.

Only those Photos for which you have legal ownership should be submitted.  For example, if a professional photographer took a Photo, you do not automatically own that Photo.  The photographer might own the rights to that Photo.  So, please be sure as you could be liable for damages payable to whoever owns that Photo.

Photos of Multiple Participants from the same Parent may be submitted.  Multiple Photos of the same Participant may also be submitted.

Photos that have any personal, business or promotional logos, trademarks or brands visible will not be eligible.  If a Participant is wearing clothes with logo of the manufacturer, we reserve the right to eliminate such logo from the photo but we shall not be obligated to, and may reject the photo based on the presence of the logo.

Photos that include messages, addresses or contact information that could be used for sales or promotion are not eligible for the Contest.  

Photos that include words or images that say, direct or suggest a meaning or message that is hateful, racist, discriminatory, political or religious in nature are not eligible for the Contest.

We reserve the right to not post pictures we, in our sole discretion, deem to be inappropriate for the Site.

Upon written notice to us, you may withdraw a Photo from a Contest at any time prior to announcement of the winner of such Contest.  


When submitting a Photo, you will be asked to provide the legal name of the Participant, the Participant’s relationship to you and the Participant’s birthdate.

Each Photo may be reviewed for compliance with the Rules of Eligibility and you may be asked to provide additional information.  This process may delay a Photo’s entry into a Contest (and the Photo may, as a result, not be eligible for a given Contest). , We shall have no liability in the case of any delays or inability to enter a particular Contest as a result of such delay..

As part of the review process, you expressly grant us the right to edit the Photo to improve the quality of the image (for example, improve contrast), make corrections to the Photo (for example, eliminate redeye) or ensure the Photo complies with this Agreement (for example, delete a brand logo on a Participant’s pajamas). Under no circumstances will we make any changes to the Photo that affect the physical characteristics of the Participant or his/her surroundings, except as described above.

If we determine a Photo to be ineligible based on the Rules of Eligibility, we will email the Parent who submitted the ineligible Photo of that decision.  We may or may not detail the reason for our decision.


By completing the registration and a submitting a Photo of a Participant, each Parent is expressly granting Cutieville the right to use such Photo for purposes of marketing the Contest.   

In the event we desire to use a Photo you submit for the broader purpose of marketing our company and business as a whole, we will obtain your express written consent prior to doing so.

If the Photo you submitted wins a Contest, you expressly grant Cutieville the right to publish, display and use that Photo to promote the Site and the Contests without further compensation.  You may, at any time upon sixty (60) days’ notice, revoke such permission.
