THE FIRST photography sessions for the Under Fives competition being run by Bailey’s of Bromsgrove and The Standard take place this Tuesday and Wednesday (April 3 and 4).

The hunt is on again for the most photogenic youngsters in Bromsgrove, Droitwich and South Birmingham in three categories - 0 to six months, seven to 24 months, and 25 months to five years.

All sessions take place at Bailey’s, opposite the Navigation Inn, Hanbury Road, where there is free parking.

And, after this week’s, the rest will be held on April 10 and 11, April 17 and 18 and on April 24 and 25.

The sessions are free and no appointment is necessary. Parents are urged to beat the rush by going in the first two weeks of the competition.

A cheque for £60 awaits the winner in each of the three categories plus an enormous 20in by 16in framed wall portrait of the child (worth £200).

Second prize winners in each category will get a 15in by 12in portrait (worth £145).

The winners will be chosen by The Standard’s editorial team and the judges’ decisions are final. No discussion will be entered into.

Following the competition, parents can have a print of their child, free of charge, which they will be able to collect from The Standard’s office.

They will also have the chance to purchase a large pack of photographs, should they wish to, although there is absolutely no obligation.
