Winners of first photo contest revealed

Worcester Editorial 4th Oct, 2013 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

THE VOTES have been counted and this week the Standard can reveal the two winners of this year’s Baby Photo Competition.

Congratulations go to little Sebastian Hawkesford who won the 0 to 17 month category and beaming Kaya Grace Costello who took home the top prize in the older 18 to 36 month age group.

More than 120 youngsters were photographed during our first ever competition by our dedicated photographer Andrea Powell. Judges whittled down entries and shortlisted them into two groups of 20 before the vote was thrown open to you, our readers, to have your say.

It was a close call in both age groups but unfortunately there can only be one winner in each.

The Worcester Standard would like to thank the hundreds of people who voted and Andrea for her efforts behind the lense.

The two winning families will each receive a giant framed photo of the featured picture.
