The Argus and professional photographer, Darren Cool, welcomed over 700 Cute Kids to Churchill Square earlier this month to have their portrait taken for The Argus Cute Kids competition.

This week, every Cute Kid’s photograph will appear in The Argus, and readers will be able to vote for one Cute Kid in each age group to win some fantastic prizes.

Today we begin with the youngest category, featuring 0-12 month old babies.

Tomorrow we will move on to those aged between one and three. On Wednesday, the three to fiveyear- olds will feature. The seven to nine-year olds will be in The Argus on Thursday, and finally, the 10 – 12 year olds will be featured on Friday.

Our five winners will be announced on Wednesday, March 26 and will all feature on the front cover of The Argus Youth in Action supplement.

Every winner will also receive a family photo shoot and prints from Darren Cool and the 0-12 months category will win the following prizes:

Soft rattle from BHS; a clever cow rattle from Mothercare; Wolly & Tig plush toy and aquadoodle
set from The Entertainer; a cookie card from Millie’s Cookies; Thorntons chocolate and a £15

Personally I think competitions like this are morally wrong!

We shouldn't be able to use children in popularity type contests! Why can't people just appreciate their children for who and what they are rather than trying to portray their child as 'better' than everyone else's

Be proud, by all means, but don't make it a competition!

As a doting grandmother I know that I am biased. My little grandson would win hands down. :-)

Why can't people vote online? Or is it just that the Argus are doing this to make money?

The money they make from phone votes isn't the main motivation for this sort of nonsense. Newsquest know that poor gullible s0ds buy printed versions of the paper so they can have a paper copy of their little darling, at the time of year that the independent auditors publish statistics for how many copies are sold: they then use this inflated figure to lie to advertisers about how many idiots see their adverts every week.
Ker-ching! Kiddie pics = advertising revenue.

Now that is rather clever ... Having said that, I'm with Brightonlad86 ... Every child is a picture worth the having. I've seen some ugly ones but I have never yet seen a child that wasn't the best thing since sliced bread!
