The Winner of the ‘2013’ Face of BabyExpo competition - in association with official photographer Phase Photographic - announced!
The competition was to select the very best image as taken by the experts at Phase Photographic at BabyExpoUK in Brighton in June. Hundreds of fabulous images were put before the judging panel who had the tough task of whittling them down to 10 finalists - these were then posted on the Phase Photographic Facebook page for the public to cast their vote to determine the final 3!
The Face of Baby Expo – winner announced!
The prize included a fabulous family photo package courtesy of Phase Photographic worth £650+ and the winning image will be used on the promotional materials and on the website for BabyExpo Brighton 2014.
The 3 finalists were revealed as Tegan from Uckfield (mummy Lisa Alexander) India from Portslade (mummy Emma Bott) and twins (Mummy Carley Ferguson)
The final judge in the process was Rachel Waddilove - internationally renowned childcare expert and parental advisor, who has worked with families around the world, including high profile clients such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Minnie Driver, and Lord and Lady Mountbatten. Her latest book – ‘Sleep Solutions: Quiet Nights for You and Your Child’, endorsed by Minnie Driver was published this summer.
Rachel had the tough task of choosing the winner from the final 3 and admitted it was a challenge with 3 such strong images but in the end declared the winner as ‘a very clever picture with lovely expression on baby's faces’. Although the competition was for the ‘Face of BabyExpo’ – organisers are delighted to announce that the winning image for 2013 was actually twins Casey and Keira from Stopting.
Suzanne Borrell, Event Director added
‘I am glad I didn’t have to decide as the images were all so beautiful but we are very happy with our winner! It’s a stunning shot, full of character and capturing two very gorgeous little babyexpo visitors! Hats off to Phase Photographic for hosting the busy onsite studio, capturing the day so well and offering such an expert service to the thousands of parents and parents-to-be who came!’
Faye from Phase Photographic added
‘It was great fun and we can’t wait to get Keira and Casey in to the studio to claim their fabulous prize!
BabyExpo Brighton will take place in June 2014. The next BabyExpo event will take place in Guildford at Surrey Sports Park on November 24 2013.
