The competition was tough as our judges cast an appraising eye over some of the Fylde Coast’s cutest youngsters.
And the waiting is finally over.
The Gazette can now announce the winner of this year’s Christmas Cuties photographic competition.
And the congratulations go to Lili-Mai Bonnell, of Condor Grove, Blackpool, who is the lucky winner of the popular Gazette contest, which is run in conjunction with the Houndshill Shopping Centre.
Lili-Mai beat off hundreds and hundreds of local youngsters who went along to the busy centre to have their festive portraits taken in our annual competition.
Lili-Mai and her mum Rebecca Butler went along to the Houndshill Shopping Centre to pick up their prizes and The Gazette was on hand to picture the occasion.
