There’s a new date for youngsters hoping to claim the title of the Chad’s Cutest Kid 2014.

Our free photo competition will now be running at Beales Department Store, Queen Street, Mansfield, from September 16th to 20th.

The date change has come about after the photographer from Sutton’s Picture Lounge, who was due to take pictures in Mansfield this week, was unable to get to the scheduled sessions.

Chad editor Phil Bramley: “We’re really sorry we’ve had to re-arrange the dates, which has come about through no fault of The Chad or Beales.

“I’d like to thank Beales for their help and allowing us to re-schedule the dates,” he added.

Cute kid photos will also be taken at The Idlewells Shopping Centre in Sutton from Sunday September 7th until Thursday September 11th.

Photo sessions will be between 10am - 4pm each day

To enter, all you need to do is fill in and take with you the entry form that will appear in the Chad - this week it’s on page 79.

Photocopies are not allowed and children will only be allowed entry with a completed entry form.

It is free to enter, but there will be the opportunity to buy photographs on the day from the photographers .

This competition is open to children from newborn up to the age of five.

This year there will not be age categories but once you have entered your child into the competition, they will appear in one of our supplements in September where you will be able to vote for your favourite to keep him or her in the competition.

Based on the number of votes received, entrants will then be whittled down to a top 20 and top ten until finally the cutest kid will be announced.

And this year’s winner will receive a canvas print of the winning picture, a voucher courtesy of Frankie & Benny’s, and a gift from Tomy’s nursery and toys collection.

Last year’s winner was Poppy Freya Samson, pictured, of Mansfield.
