THE Citizen is launching a new look baby competition this year in place of the search for the Child of the Year.
Enter your youngsters in our “Top Tots” competition which is open to babies through to five year-olds.
The categories are: Best Baby aged birth to 18 months, Best Boy aged 18 months to five years; and Best Girl aged 18 months to five years.
The pictures will be taken by popular photographers, Premier Promotions.
There will be three separate competitions held throughout the year but no overall winner.
The winners of each competition will be decided by Citizen readers who will vote for their favourites as usual.
Voters will have six children in each age group to chose from and the winners of each category will receive a 20x16 framed canvas portrait, worth £180.
The first chance to win one of the portraits is next week from Tuesday March 27 to Saturday March 31 at the Beales store in Wisbech’s Church Terrace.
So, bring your beautiful baby or terrific toddler along to Beales from 10am to 4pm Tuesday to Friday March 27 to March 30 and 10am to 3pm on Saturday March 31.
Photographs of children entered into the competition are taken free of charge and there is no obligation to buy.
Parents will be given a date by Premier Promotions to return to the venue to view the photographs selected for the competition.
• The second competition is in May at the new venue of March Library at City Road followed by the last competition in October in Wisbech. Details of these competitions will be published in the Citizen nearer the time.
