The committee has teamed up with the North Devon Gazette to find a princess to accompany carnival queen Jerica Torres at this year's event - and go on to become carnival queen herself in 2010.
The competition is open to all girls aged between 14 and 16 from the Barnstaple area; and all that would-be-queens have to do to be in with a chance of stealing the limelight on a day to remember on Saturday, September 19, is fill in the form below.
Carnival organisers have put together a fantastic package of prizes for this year's lucky girl. The winning princess will receive an off-the-peg dress to wear on the day - and keep - from Joy Street boutique Gems; as well as �50 prize money. AND, they'll be guaranteed similar prizes in 2010 when they go on to become carnival queen themselves!
