After much thought I've decided to hold a portrait competition. As my aim is to promote myself and add visitors to my blog I will be asking for you to return each day to vote, but this time after so many images arrived after the deadline I am offering more time to send a cute kid's photo in so everyone has an opportunity to take part.

So for your chance to win your own portrait get sorting out your favourite image, unfortunately only kid's portraits are viable for this competition.


Entries must be received by 21 December 2009 - they should be emailed to, please include your name (this will not be seen by the public), the Kid's name and a little bit of information about your Kid to encourage visitors to vote for your kid!

The portrait will be of a single kid only (girls,guys are all acceptable)

Only digital images are suitable and must be at least 250kb otherwise the detail will be too poor to use as a portrait, if an image is not clear enough it will not be entered into the competition.

Voting will take place from 1 Jan 2010 by way of a poll on my website and comments on my blog so to double your chances do both (only one vote per email address and google account each day will be accepted) although the finer details will be sorted out closer to the time that voting begins, but in any eventuality the winner will be chosen by the public and not by myself so everyone will have an equal chance of winning. The voting will run until 1 July 2010. Votes on the poll will be viewable instantly and I will update comments votes on a regular basis to ensure everything is above board and fair to all.

For the comments votes, each image will receive it's own posting and comments should be left on that particular post to count, simply state 'vote' at the beginning of the comment. Any voting comments left before 1 Jan 2010 will be deleted although other comments may be published, you must come back in January to vote.

The web poll will not appear until the new year for voting.

The sketch will be portrayed as I see fit and will be from what is shown on the image, Your image should show your kid as you wish it to be portrayed.

Any prize is non-transferable, you cannot upgrade, has no monetary value and is for a graphite pencil sketched portrait. The portrait will be mounted and sent to the winner

I reserve the right not to accept an image if I feel it is unsuitable

All accepted images will be posted on my blog/website for visitors to view and vote for.

You can enter up to 2 different images each to the win a portrait competition

All rules are final but are subject to change as the need arises, please feel free to ask any questions if the answer you are looking for is not already shown here.
