OUR great Little Stars photo competition in now under way – and if you haven’t entered your children yet, there are plenty more sessions to come.
We have teamed up with top photographic company Starlight Studios to hold sittings all over the Mercury area.
Each sitting will cost £3.99 and then your favourite photo from the sitting will be entered free of charge into the Mercury competition.
Each entrant will receive a wonderful £20 colour portrait absolutely FREE.
There will be three age categories – up to 18 months, 18 months to three years, and three years to five. Every child’s photo will be published in the Mercury and readers will then vote for their favourite in each age category and the overall winner.
Starlight is offering £500 of photo prizes for the winners to share and there will be other super prizes as well. It’s a great opportunity to see your son or daughter in print – and get some beautiful photographs to keep!
The Starlight Studios team will be at the Co-operative supermarket in Burley Road, Oakham and at the offices of our sister paper, the Local, in West Strreet, Bourne from Tuesday, July 5, to Friday, July 8. The sittings will take place from 10am to 5pm on Tuesday, 9am to 5pm on Wednesday and Thursday and 9am to 4pm on Friday
