Smile! Baby photo contest now accepting entries

October is just around the corner and with it Taylor County’s annual month-long salute to forestry—the Florida Forest Festival.

Entries are now being accepted for the 58th annual Florida Forest Festival’s Baby Photo Contest. The deadline to enter is Friday, Oct. 11.

Photos must have been taken after April 1, 2013. The contest is divided into four age groups: 0-6 months; 7-11 months; one year; two years; three years; and four years.

Entries will be judged on the following criteria: uniqueness of photo, capturing the moment, baby showing personality and photogenic quality.

All entries must be amateur photos (not professional or studio), an enlarged 5×7 with a matted border (not framed) and only one photo per child.
Entries should be turned in at Photos & Frames (located at 102 E. Main Street). Entry fees are $9.

Winners will be announced at the 2013 Little King & Queen Pageant Saturday, Oct. 12.
