Contest: Look Like Mom? Win Brunch for Her

Sons and daughters, celebrate Mother's Day and share a picture to show us how much you look like mom. You could win a $150 gift certificate for brunch.

NOTE: As of now, the contest is closed, per the rules below. We had 41 entries and we'll announce the winner on Wednesday. Thanks everyone for entering and for sharing your lovely photos! Happy Mother's Day!

As Mother's Day approaches, we have an idea that could win you a $150 gift certificate to your brunch location of choice. All you've got to do is show us how much you look like mom — whether you're a daughter or a son.

Oh, and moms? You can enter too, on behalf of your sons or daughters.

We're giving away a brunch gift certificate worth up to $150 to your favorite place (provided it provides gift certificates!). All you have to do is show us how much you look like mom (or mom, how much you look like your kids).

Enter our "Look Like Mom" contest for a chance to win. Here's how:

  • Upload a photo that shows off the resemblance by clicking on the "Upload Photos and Videos" button to the left. Remember to give it a caption so we know who you are. (Pictures need to conform to Patch's terms of use policy.)
  • Once you've entered, we'll enter you into a drawing to win the $150 gift certificate. We'll also give away four runner-up prizes of a Patch T-shirt.

OK, now for the rules:

  • Open to legal residents of the 50 United States, the District of Columbia who are 18 and older.
  • To enter, upload a photo. Keep it clean.
  • All entries must be received by noon on May 8, 2012, St. Louis time.
  • You may enter once.
  • One winner will be selected in a random drawing to receive one $150 gift card for brunch at the location of your choice, provided it provides gift certificates. Four runners-up will receive a Patch T-shirt.

Click on the "upload photos and videos" button this page to send us your photo and remember to describe what it represents. But be sure to come back and to add your photo to the gallery on this contest page.

This leaves out all the adopted girls, doesn't it? Hummm.

Fair question, but of course not! We're not judging the winner based on how much they look like mom. I thought that was kind of clear when we said sons can enter too, but thanks for raising the question.

My iPad won't upload. Is it possible to email a pic to be uploaded?

Can you try again from another computer? We've had some submissions already, so I know it works. We really need the entry to come from your account.

...I uploaded two, and thought the second would replace the first. I do not see a way to remove the first. Mom wants to use it to enter, since HER Mom is in it. :-)

Thanks for the note! I'll remove the one with just the two of you. Thanks for entering!
