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 Salisbury Journal launches its 2018 Child of the Year portrait competition to find the child with the most dazzling and winning smile.

This year the Journal is delighted to welcome Broadstone-based Fraser Portraits as the official Salisbury Journal Child of the Year photographers.

With over 30 years of experience in taking children’s portraits, Fraser Portraits can be sure to produce a smile for our competition.

This year there are four different age categories to be won and an overall winner to be chosen.

This year’s categories are:

Unisex 0-9 Months

Unisex 10-18 Months

Unisex 19-36 Months

Unisex 3-6 Years

If you would like to enter a child into our competition, all you have to do is come along to one of our special Child of the Year photo shoots taking place from 10am-4pm at Tesco Metro, Castle Street, Salisbury, SP1 1TT Friday, July 13 and Saturday, July 14.

Entry is free (children must be aged from 0 months to six 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 Salisbury Journal.

Voting for the child you would like to see crowned as the winner of the Salisbury Journal Child of the Year portrait competition will be by post, text and phone. Full details will be printed within each supplement.

All the category winners will receive a certificate and 12 x 8 canvas of their winning picture, the overall winner will receive a certificate and 16 x 12 canvass print of their winning picture from Fraser Portraits.
