Standard baby competition returns

THERE’S a very important competition taking place over the next couple of weeks as The Redditch Standard Baby Photo Competition returns.

Hundreds of bonny babies and handsome toddlers will once again be photographed and entered into the contest absolutely free of charge.

Experienced professional portrait photographer Andrea Powell will set up her mobile studio by The Works and Primark from Monday, March 31 to Wednesday, April 9.

Simply take your baby or toddler - up to the age of 36 months - along to her from 9.30am to 4.30pm on any of those days (except Sunday). No appointment is necessary. She will take a selection of professional photos of your child absolutely free of charge.

After the pictures are taken you will be asked back a few days later to choose which print is to be entered into the competition.

You will also be given the opportunity to buy a selection of the prints taken at an extremely competitive price, but you’re under no obligation whatsoever to do this.

All children photographed will have the chance to be entered into the competition. Prizes will be awarded in two categories - 0 to 18 months, and 19 to 36 months.

First prize in each category is an enormous 20in x 16in canvas wall portrait of your child (worth at least £200), while the second prize is a 12in x 10in canvas portrait (worth around £100).

After all the photographs have been taken and selected, the Standard will shortlist entries up to 20 in each age group. We will publish those shortlisted and readers will be able to vote for the winners.

Please note the judges’ decision on shortlisting is final, and no correspondence whatsoever will be entered into with regard to the reasons for choosing, or not choosing, any particular picture(s).

Employees of Bullivant Media Ltd and their families are not eligible to enter.
