PLANTATION, Fla. -

A contest to find the most photogenic baby in South Florida has begun at the Westfield Broward Mall.

The event, which is being held in Plantation, is called "Miami's Most Photogenic Baby Contest."

For $35, a photographer will snap several pictures of your child. Children up to 5-years-old can enter.

For another $100, you can receive a CDROM of pictures of your child.

Aidan Bick, 2, and his 9-month-old brother Dylan had their pictures taken Thursday.

"I loved getting them involved in pictures and modeling like that and it's for a great cause. Our doctor is actually a part of Miami Children's, so I decided why not," said Erica Bick, their mother.

The money raised benefits Miami Children's Hospital.

The event is happening near Dillard's from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.

People will then vote on the pictures both online and at the mall.

The winner gets bragging rights and a trophy presented at an awards ceremony.

The South Florida winner will compete with 14 other winners in a national contest.

Event organizers said some previous winners have gone on to be featured in film, television and print ads.
