MPA unveils second quarter Cherubs winners
MPA announces the winners of the second quarter of their Cherub of the Year competition.
The Master Photographer Association (MPA) has announced the second quarterly winners in its inaugural 'Cherub of the Year' competition.
The successful photographers are: Howard Dawber, Paul Barsby, D & M Loney Photography (2 awards), The Astbury Studio, Samantha Kelly, Jennifer Robertson, Lynne Brereton, Ian Crowe, Liz Laidler, Vikki Rogers, Elmcroft Studios, Collin Davies, Nigel Milligan (2 awards), Linda Williams, Mark Hughes, Karen Lead and Greg Cameron Day. Each of these photographers now move forward to the final judging that takes place in February 2011, which culminates in the ultimate prize: Cherub's Photographer of the Year.
The awards form part of the Cherubs programme, a major consumer promotion run by the MPA, that recognises the UK's very best baby photography. Cherub of the Year is open to members of the public who have their babies photographed by their local MPA Cherubs photographer. Each customer who wins a quarterly prize receives a £25 shopping voucher but more importantly goes forward to the final judging when a cash prize of £10,000 will be presented to the parents of the 'Cherub of the Year'.
"Cherubs has been the backbone of many photographers' businesses for several years and the improvements we've made to the promotion now make it even better," says Colin Buck, MPA chief executive. "Congratulations to all our second quarter's winners, one of their customers could be walking away with a cool £10,000 in a few months."
In addition to entry into the competition, each parent who books a Cherubs sitting receives three complimentary portraits to record their baby's first year presented in a beautiful folding Art Leather triple Folio.
Cherubs is still open to new participating photographers (you don't even need to be an existing MPA member), for further information go to the Cherubs website or to find out more about the MPA, visit the MPA website.
