THE deadline for voting in our Little Stars photo competition is fast approaching.
We teamed up with top photographers Starlight Studios and held sittings all over the Mercury area – and we’re asking readers to vote for their favourite.
You can still vote by text up until midnight on Sunday, September 11.
You will need to have kept the numer of the baby you are voting for from when they appeared in the Mercury a couple of weeks ago.
The top five in each age group - 0-18 months, 18 months to three years and three years to six years - will go through to the grand final, when readers will be able to choose the winner of each age group.
The winning child with the most votes will be declared the overall Little Stars champ.
Text your entry before midnight on Sunday, September 11 to 61500 starting your message with SMP then a space BABY or Little or STARS (depending on the age category) then a space and the number of the child you are voting for, followed by your name, house number and postcode. Text messages cost £1 in addition to your standard network charge and should contain no more than 160 characters.
Please note if you should enter after the stated closing date your vote will not be valid but you may still be charged.
