Time is running out to showcase your favourite baby photo and earn valuable cash and prizes.

Deadline to enter the Gazette’s Baby Photo Contest, held to promote Childcare Month and fundraise for two programs, has been extended to Wed., May 8.

Photos may be of any baby or toddler up to 24 months of age. Photo may have been taken at any time — got a cute baby photo of grandma? Send it in.

All photos received will be published in our May 16 edition and on our Facebook page, with judging done through Facebook “likes”. Winners will be announced May 30.

The first-place winner will receive $100. Second prize is a one-hour portrait package worth $150 from KPH Photography in Port McNeill. Third prize is a $50 gift certificate toward a photo session with Kimberly Kufaas Photography in Port Hardy.

All entry proceeds will be shared with the Mother Goose Literacy Bus Program and with Jeneece Place in Victoria, which hosts families of North Island children who require medical care down-Island.

Entry fee is $5 per photo. Digital images can be emailed to reporter@northislandgazette.com (must be minimum of one megabyte in size), and prints can be dropped at the Gazette office for scanning. Please include your full name and phone number with each entry. All photos will be returned to the owner.
