Bring your children to Atlantic Village on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and take part in our free-to-enter festive photo competition

Could your child’s smile melt the hardest of snowmen, or would they look simply adorable in an elf hat?

If so, they could be in with a chance of winning some of the fantastic prizes up for grabs in the Gazette’s brand new Cute Christmas Kids competition.

We’ve teamed up with Atlantic Village in Bideford and Melandrew Photographic to offer families some extra-festive fun while they do some Christmas shopping.

Look out for Melandrew Photographic at Atlantic Village shopping centre in Clovelly Road from Friday until Sunday, from 11am-3pm each day.

The annual Christmas appeal, now in its 19th year, has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for both charities and gives people the chance to remember loved ones who are gone but not forgotten.

The following week you’ll be able to view all the adorable entries and vote for your favourite by text. Full details about how to vote will be published in next week’s paper.

And the winners in each of our age categories – 0-2, 3-5 and 6+ years – will be in for a spectacular festive treat!

Winners will receive framed and canvas pictures of themselves; a family photoshoot with Melandrew Photographic; a £50 Atlantic Village gift voucher; and a year’s pass to the Atlantis Adventure Park.

On the day, parents will have the chance to purchase a special Christmas gift package, including a photograph; a CD of all images; two boxed photo mugs; and a photo key-ring – all for just £25.95.

Entries will be published in next week’s Gazette and on the Gazette website with details about how to vote. Good luck!
