OUR fantastic children’s photographic competition is here again, and you can see all the entries in Monday’s Gazette.

The competition is run in conjunction with the Houndshill Shopping Centre.

Hundreds of local children from all over the Fylde coast have taken part in the competition and now we want Gazette readers to vote for their favourite tot.

There are three age categories: Category A is for babies up to 12 months; Category B is for age 1 up to 3 years and Category C is for children aged between 3 and 5.

To vote for your favourite Top Tot is easy:

Simply text BEG (space) TOTS followed by the unique reference number of the child you wish to vote for, please include your full name and email address too. For example: BEG TOTS 001

Send your text vote to: 61500 

Texts cost 50p plus your usual network rate.

Alternatively, complete the voting coupon printed here and post to:

Top Tots Votes, The Gazette, c/o LEP Promotions, Oliver’s Place, Fulwood, Preston PR2 9ZA You can put multiple coupons (no photocopies accepted) in one envelope, please copy the reference code of your chosen photo on the back of your envelope.

You can vote as many times as you like. Closing date for votes is 5.30pm Friday, July 22. Gazette competition rules apply. The Editor’s decision is final

Once all the votes are recorded, the top ten in each category will go through to the final stage of the competition.

We will be holding a ‘live’ Top Tots Grand Final’ at The Gazette’s very own Bump & Beyond Mother & Baby Exhibition. Our lucky finalists will be invited down to our exciting family event which is taking place at Farmer Parr’s in Fleetwood on Sunday, September 11. A panel of judges will choose an overall winner in each category.

Each winner will take away £100 cash, a framed portrait and an engraved trophy.
