THE search is set to start to find the cutest kids in south east Northumberland.
Next week the News Post Leader is launching its Cute Kids 2012 competition in association with Manor Walks Shopping & Leisure Cramlington.
We are inviting readers to take their children along to a specially set-up photographic studio in Manor Walks shopping centre between Thursday, December 6 and Saturday, December 15.
There a professional photographer will take the picture.
All pictures taken will be entered into the competition, with no obligation to purchase photos, although these will be available from the photographer if anyone would like to buy one.
There are three age categories for the competition – 0 to 18 months, 18 months to three years, and three to five years.
All entries will initially appear on the website – www.newspostleader.co.uk – once all the pictures have been put together.
Ten from each category will then be selected by our judges with these finalists appearing in the News Post Leader for readers to make their vote.
The overall winner will be selected by the in-paper reader vote.
There will be two winners from the three to five years category who will be given the chance to be Lord/Lady of the Manor for Manor Walks. They will also receive a canvas print of their picture and £50 in vouchers for Manor Walks.
Their will be one winner of the 0 to 18 months and 18 months to three years categories and they will also receive a canvas print of their picture and £50 in vouchers.
