The Eastwood & Kimberley Advertiser is set to launch its popular Child of the Year 2012 competition.

Following on from the success of our Pets on Parade competition, it is now the turn of your children to show off their modelling skills.

To get your child involved in the competition come along to our open photo shoots from Tuesday June 26 to Thursday June 28 at The Co-op, 106 Nottingham Road, Eastwood.

The photographer will be there from10am to 4pm each day, ready to take your child’s picture.

It costs nothing to take part, with all photographs in the competition appearing in a special supplement to be published in the Advertiser next month followed by a public vote to pick our winners.

There are three categories with one winner from each category picking up a canvas print of the winning shot.

We were inundated with votes for last year’s winners and it proved a very tight race in all three sections.

Advertiser editor Peter Hemmett said: “Our Child of the Year competition is an annual event and is always hugely popular.

“It never ceases to amaze me how lovely all our entrants in the competition are.

“If I had to choose the winners I would struggle so I’m glad they are chosen by our readers.

“We are looking forward to receiving entries for the Child of the Year Competition 2012.

“Make sure you pop along on one of the photoshoot days at The Co-op. We can’t wait to see the entries.”

All children must be accompanied by either a parent or guardian at the photo sessions.
