Could your child be our Cute Kids champion? Photo sessions in St George’s Shopping Centre in Gravesend

25 April 2014
by Thom Morris

The search concludes tomorrow to find our Cute Kid for 2014.

Over the last few days, we teamed up with Starlight Studio to run the competition, and they will be taking photos in St George’s Shopping Centre (opposite the Co-op Travel shop) in Gravesend.

Sessions started on Tuesday and will finish tomorrow.

You can get your child snapped between 9am and 4pm.

Pictures taken during the sessions will then go in the Gravesend and Dartford Messengers for a readers’ vote, with £500 worth of prizes up for grabs.

The winners will also have their children’s pictures put on to a canvas.

The competition is free to enter, and you will be able to purchase some of the pictures taken during the session.

The images will appear in a special pull-out in the Messengers, which will include details about how to vote.

Last year, scores of parents took part in the competition.

The 2013 Gravesend champion was eight-month-old Harry Waller, who was born on September 23, 15 weeks early, weighing just 1lb 14oz.

He scooped the top prize and mum Tina, 39, donated the cash to the special baby care unit that cared for Harry.

The New Ash Green resident, who lives with husband David, 46, said: “Without the intensive care of the Oliver Fisher unit at Medway Maritime Hospital, I don’t think he’d have survived.”

Our Dartford Messenger winner was nine-month-old Tommy Leggatt, of Temple Hill, Dartford.

His mum, Sarah Kingman, said: “I’m so pleased. He’s such a good baby, and he’s always happy and smiley.”

This year, we have combined the competitions so there will be just one winner for both the two Messengers.

If you want your child to take part, just turn up for one of the sessions between Tuesday, April 22, and Saturday, April 26.
