THE WINNERS of the Little Miss and Mister competition were picture perfect as they collected their trophies.

Children aged 0-17 were invited to a free studio sitting at the Foto Shop in Dean Road to have their picture taken. These were then published in the Evening News and readers were asked to vote for their favourite.

Hundreds of you texted in to nominate your choices in each of the four separate age categories, which were whittled down to the top three in each of the groups.

Tobey Yorke, Abbie Blake, Daniel Shepherd and Ayse Johnson were picked as the final winners and will now receive a free photo and frame from the Foto Shop.

David Walker of the Foto Shop said: “As usual the competition went very well, there were lots of entrants and it was nice to have lots of finalists rather than just one.

“A lot of them want to go into modelling, it’s a nice chance for them to strut their stuff.”
