Redditch Standard Baby of the Year Competition 2020 is fast approaching

Harry Leach 2nd Mar, 2020

WHO will be the lucky winners of our 2020 Redditch Standard Baby of the Year competition?

The launch date is fast approaching and this year it promises to be bigger and better than ever.

Complete with a new format we’re hoping that once again hundreds of bonnie babies will have their photographs taken and entered into our competition – and it’s all absolutely free of charge.

Professional portrait photographer Andrea Powell will be setting up her mobile studio by The Works and Primark in the Kingfisher Shopping Centre from Monday, March 9 to Saturday, March 21 (closed Sunday).

As usual there are two categories, 0-18 months and 19 months to three years.

Prizes will be awarded for winners and runners up – a 20”x16” canvas print and Jellycat toy for first place and a 12”x10” canvas and Jellycat toy for second.

After the portraits have been taken, parents and guardians are given a return date to select their favourite photograph and these will then be entered into the competition.

Andrea will also be offering a selection of the prints to buy at an extremely competitive price, but you are under no obligation whatsoever to do so.

All our beautiful babies will be then be placed on the Redditch Standard website at for you to cast your votes – please note no child’s name will appear.

The ten babies with the most votes will go through to the final, plus ten more babies selected by our panel of judges.

Employees of Bullivant Media Ltd and their families are not eligible to enter.
