Baby & Toddler of the Year 2018

Do you have the cutest child in the county? Does your child look adorable in photographs? 


Then your child could be crowned Baby or Toddler of the Year!

What's it all about?

The Shropshire Star is launching a brand new competition, searching for youngsters who stand out from the rest. And it’s you, our readers, who will vote for their favourites.

There are four age categories: 0-9 months, 10-18 months, 19-35 months and toddlers aged 3-5 years, with the winner of each one receiving a cheque for £500. What’s more, the winner with most votes out of all four category winners will win a further £250 and take the coveted title of Baby & Toddler of the Year 2018.

How to take part

Bring your young one along to one of our sessions and your child will be snapped by our professional photographer. You do not need to book, simply arrive at your chosen location and our team will be on hand to help.


What’s more the sessions are absolutely free and you will be invited back to the relevant shopping centre to choose which picture you would like published in the newspaper. You will also have the opportunity to purchase some of the photographs taken on the day.
