I feel like there needs to be a category for older children. My daughters modeling photos at age 11 didn't stand a chance against women's fashion photos with their heavy makeup and costumes. They didn't fit in with the older teen girls. Nor did they look right among the babies and toddlers. I tried submitting her in all of them. I ended up moving her to body parts as a face- but its not meant for the kind of picture it was (non artistic- modeling style face shot)

So - please create a category for
1st thru 6th graders or around 13. The general rule would be no visible makeup on the girls unless its traditional decoration. (No heavy traditional American teen makeup- other than to create a "natural look" for a professional photo shoot)

You may want to consider placing all "photo shoot" modeling pictures together- covering teens on up. And another for men/women fashion costume and cultural costumes. The guidelines would be for women- includes makeup that is decorative, clothing not traditionally used by the general public. (No Halloween costumes allowed) however does permit costumes worn in parades and cultural events (ethnic costumes)

Simple, clear, discrete subcategories.

Maybe by age rather than school grade as some of us live out of America. Say, Babies, Toddlers, 3 - 12, 13 - 21 etc.

Let's get this sorted out, agreed and then the photos' sub cats will make more sense.

I am not affected by this since my girls have long been past the ages we are talking about. But I think it is a good idea.

I think the ages should be broken down more. 5-7, 8-11, 12-14, 15-18. Saving toddlers for being 2-4 and babies anything under 2.

I'm sure there are many ways to break it down- but "babies and children" tends to attract those to under 8 (or maybe 10... when they still look like little cute kids playing and stuff) , and those teen/tween girls end up either going into People- school/senior- where they never do well.
I would say boys as well. I had a couple of really cool grade 8 grad shots of my son, and they didn't do well in either people OR children.
