Whilst both amateur and professional images may be submitted by the general public, professional photographers may not submit their own images for inclusion in this competition.  Closing date for entries is 31st January.

After the closing date, visitors to the website will be invited to check out our competition page showing all the entries and asked to vote for their favourite photo.

The closing date for voting is the middle of February each year.

3 easy steps to taking winning baby photo competition pictures:

Take lots of photos: Digital cameras are simply fantastic. You can take unlimited pictures without having to raid your baby’s piggy bank to pay for film and developing. There is no substitute for practice when it comes to getting great pictures. The more you practise, the better you get.

Keep it simple: There is absolutely no doubt about it, babies are cute. So simple backgrounds usually work the best.

Be sure to look before you snap to see that nothing is behind them in a way that makes them look like something is growing out of their head. Keep an eye on the background and move your angle or your baby if the background is really busy.

Don’t underestimate the value of a silly picture: It’s often the silly pictures that win. People love to see babies doing the things that babies do best, being silly, cute & messy.

There’s lots of advice on the internet. Here’s a page with lots of links and tips:

No purchase is necessary.  One vote per email address.  Photos submitted in previous CobWebKnits’ competitions will not be included.  The winning entry will be notified after the closing date when you will be asked to provide shipping details. No contact details other than an email address will be required before this from any entrant and email addresses will not be passed on to any other organisations. Two prizes will be awarded. One for the winning photo as voted for by the public and the second for one person selected at random from the list of those who voted for the winning entry. Within 28 days of being contacted, the owner of the winning photo will receive their prize of a baby hat (sizes from 0 - 12 months (TBC) and matching blanket in either fairy or pixie designs as shown on our website.  The winning voter will receive a gift voucher worth £25 and redeemable on products as shown on our website.  Competition results will be announced on our website 7 working days after the closing date. By submitting photographs for this competition you are giving permission for their inclusion on this website and in any related publicity associated with this competition. Please seek permission from parents if necessary.
