Child of the Year
Will your child win the Daily Echo’s Child of the Year competition 2014?
Has your child got what it takes to dazzle and shine like a star in front of the camera?
Here’s the perfect opportunity to see if they have, as the Daily Echo launches its 2014 Child of the Year portrait competition to find the child with the most dazzling and winning smile.
This year the Daily Echo is delighted to welcome Broadstone-based Fraser Portraits as the official Daily Echo Child of the Year photographers.
With over 30 years of experience in taking children’s portraits, Fraser Portraits can’t fail to produce a smile for our competition!
If you would like to enter a child into our competition, each person entering will need to cut out a Child of the Year ‘PHOTO SESSION’ advert which will be published every day in the Daily Echo from Feb 13 until March 8.
Then all you have to do is take a copy of the advert along to one of our special Child of the Year photo shoots taking place at the following venues from 10am – 4pm daily;
• ASDA, Poole. (17 & 18 Feb)
• Dolphin Centre, Poole. (19 – 23 Feb)
• Tesco, Castle Lane (26 Feb – 2 March)
• Debenhams, Bournemouth (5 – 8 March)
Entry is free- all you need is the advert from the paper. (No photocopies will be allowed and one coupon per child is required. Children must be aged from 0 months to 12 years old.)
Photo packages will be available to purchase if you wish to have a memento of the picture taken of your child for the competition but there is no obligation to purchase these as it is free to take part in the competition
Once all the pictures have been taken, supplements of all the pictures will appear in the Daily Echo in March.
Voting for the child you would like to see crowned as the winner of the Daily Echo Child of the Year portrait competition will be by post, text and phone. Full details will be printed within each supplement.
All five category winners will receive a canvas print of their winning picture & trophy from Fraser Portraits.
