Turn your baby’s perfect insta shot into a $500 college savings account!

Nossi College of Art invites alumni and community members to submit photos showing off the personality of their baby for possible use in an upcoming marketing campaign. If your baby’s photos fit the campaign’s theme, I’m Different – I’m Nossi, families will be asked to attend a professional photoshoot at the college. Each participant will at least receive copies of their professionally-shot photographs.

After the photoshoot is complete, any child that is chosen to be part of this campaign will receive a $500 college savings account established by Nossi College of Art’s founder, Ms. Nossi Vatandoost and her son, Cyrus Vatandoost, the college’s executive vice president (See official rules at the bottom of the page.).

“Nossi College started in Nashville 46 years ago and has served this community ever since. It’s only natural that we want to showcase Nashville’s youngsters in our new campaign.”

Because babies show such unique personalities, their images will help illustrate the variety of interests and backgrounds found in Nossi College’s students and alumni. The photoshoot for selected babies could include as many as 20 participants, each representing a different mood and attitude. The I’m Different – I’m Nossi campaign will also illustrate the family atmosphere felt between students and teachers at the college during and after the time they spend on campus.

The importance of providing the opportunity of higher education to as many people as possible is a motivating reason for this project. The college founder, Ms. Nossi Vatandoost, said that helping young people in the local community is very important to her.

“Higher Education is essential to upward mobility and if Nossi College can help a few young families get started early, it’s our pleasure to do so,” Ms. Vatandoost stated. “Nossi College started in Nashville 46 years ago and has served this community ever since. It’s only natural that we want to showcase Nashville’s youngsters in our new campaign.”
