* Divas must be between the ages of newborn - 8 years old. Since you are not only representing your child as a model, but representing the Little Diva Tutus brand, you MUST include the name of your photographer AS WELL as a link to their blog/website. If you are the photographer and don’t have a blog or website, please indicate that with your photo entry.

* Photo entries must be sent to us at: ONLY. Please do not post your entries on our Facebook Fan Page. We will do that when all the entries have been received.

When entering your photographs we ask that:

* Photographs are not watermarked with other tutu company websites and/or names. Photographs watermarked with other tutu/boutiques that offer tutus will automatically be deleted.

* Photographs CAN be watermarked with photography websites.

How the contest will run:

* Photographs will be accepted 3/14/2011 (today) - 3/31/2011. Once all photographs are received Little Diva Tutus will publish a folder with either a collage of your childs photographs or an individual photograph of your child to be judged by our anonymous on-line judges.

* Judges will be asked to judge on a 1-5 star basis (1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest) using the following criteria.

•Overall "Diva" Image

* When the photographs are posted to our FB fan page you will have the opportunity to ask your friends and family to vote for your child to be the “Fan Favorite” model. In the event there is a tie between the fan favorites we will break the tie.

* On-line judges will have 10 days to judge and turn in their scores to the Little Diva Tutus team. At that time the Little Diva Tutus team will judge the photographs.

* We ask that everyone act like adults and please no mud-slinging attacks on other children and/or photographs. As someone who has been attacked, it’s hurtful and totally uncalled for! If this happens, the parent(s) of the child(ren) in question will be e-mailed, if we find evidence of attacks, that child will be disqualified from the contest.

* Please remember that judging contests is never easy! Our judges have agreed to stay anonymous and are not allowed to “Like” or comment under ANY photographs. Our judges will remain anonymous amongst one another as well as to the Little Diva Tutus fan page/Twitter Page and Blog. Judges decisions are final.

* Please do not be offended if your child is not picked. There are only 2 winners. If this contest is a success we may choose to host one every season (summer, fall, winter, spring) but we can only do this if it’s run in a professional manner.

*Please note, due to high shipping fees, this contest is only open in the US and Canada.


* Each Little Diva Tutus model will receive a complete Little Diva Tutus outfit OR dress to model. The outfit will be decided by Little Diva Tutus and sent within 5-10 business days from the date the winner is announced.

Samantha Harris Shows Little Diva Tutus some Tutu Love!

There is something to be said when a business that started out with an idea, a little cash and a lot of hope gets a little recognition!
I (Melissa) had the great pleasure of meeting ET's Samantha Harris at a Pre-Oscars Studio in Beverly Hills a couple of weeks ago. There, Samantha told me that her new Little Diva, Hillary would be wearing a tutu by Little Diva Tutus in an upcoming photoshoot for In Touch Magazine.
To say the least I was thrilled and quickly ran to my phone to update my Facebook status with the good news!
This morning I saw the above photo and story of Samantha and her youngest daughter Hillary and there she a tutu created by Little Diva Tutus! Little Hillary is wearing our popular Lily Tutu. It's created with a mix of bold, fun colors!
Our great thanks goes out to Samantha! Just seeing this photo brought a HUGE smile to my face!
Be sure to follow Samantha on Twitter
To see the entire photo spread pick up the newest issue of In Touch magazine!

Remembering Layla Grace Marsh

Little Diva Tutus had the great honor to celebrate the life of Layla Grace Marsh at a Pre-Oscars Event in Beverly Hills, CA.

Some of the celebrities we had the great pleasure of gifting our one-of-a-kind Layla Grace tutus were ET's Nancy O'Dell, ET's Samantha Harris, Gossip Girl's Kelly Rutherford and Laila Ali!

Layla's tutus were such a hit, we ran out before the end of the event! We had a feeling that might happen, so we had special Layla Tutu cards made for celebrities and press to redeem for a FREE Layla Grace tutu. We did this in hopes of raising awareness about the Layla Grace Children's Cancer Research Foundation as well as Pediatric Cancer. We hope that Layla will touch their hearts as much as she's touched ours!

To date, Little Diva Tutus has donated nearly $4,000 and $230 in products to the Layla Grace Foundation. We donate $15 for each Layla Tutu sold directly to her foundation! To order your own Layla Grace tutu, visit us HERE.

You can make a direct donation to the Layla Grace Children's Cancer Research Foundation HERE.

Please keep the Marsh family in your thoughts and prayers on March 9th. Join us in remembering Layla on Facebook HERE.
