Child of the Year launch

CUTE kids and beautiful babies will be getting ready to star in the Mercury’s annual Child of the Year competition.

This year the photographers will be taking pictures at Sainsbury’s store in Cawdor Way, Matlock.

They will be there from 4pm each day from March 22 to March 26.

The pictures which are taken can be viewed on Saturday April 2.

We have three categories each with a winner – 0-12 month-old babies, 12-24 months old youngsters and 26-36 months old toddlers.

The photographs entered in to the competition will appear in a special supplement in the Mercury on April 21.

The prizes will be confirmed nearer the time of the launch of the competition but will include an enlarged framed picture provided by Foto Imaging.

It is free to enter the competition. Just come along to the store during the photo session times.

All children must be accompanied by either a parent or guardian.
