THERE were smiles all round at The Journal's Spring Bonny Baby competition presentation.

Proud mums and dads, along with their children, turned up to pick up their prized collection of framed pictures which are set to adorn their homes.

Joy and fun were mixed with cheeky grins as the tiny tots and their parents collected the prizes at Saturday's ceremony held at Lowestoft Porcelain.

And last year's Carnival Queen Emma Cooper carried out her last duty as she handed out prizes, along with Sally Rivett, sales manager at the shop in Battery Green Road, Lowestoft, and owner of Paint and Create, and Val Wells, departmental manager at Westgate's.

The votes flooded in from readers for the spring 2008 contest with a record number of over 1,500 votes being cast.

Top of the tots in the up to 18 month's category was Brooke May Hunt, of Sycamore Avenue, Lowestoft.

Her mum Kelly Mullender, a security officer at Stansted Airport, was naturally delighted with her daughter coming out tops.

“It's superb and the prizes are fantastic. I am so pleased,” she said.

She also revealed that Booke May's image is set to be shown on information screens round BAA sites in the UK. Winner of the girls up to five years was Amy Maria Hill, of Salisbury Road, Lowestoft.

Mum Emma said it was the first time she had entered the competition but had been a regular voter.

“To win is wonderful and the photo will take pride of place at home,” she added.

Top of the boys was Jayden Turner, of Southwell Road, Lowestoft.

Mum and dad Martin and Gemma was also thrilled and said that they had entered Jayden before. Like all the other parents there were delighted with the prize and paid tribute to Paul Ziff, of Premier Promotions, who took the photos at Westgate's, in London Road South. “The frame is a lot bigger than we expected,” said Gemma. “But it's fantastic.”

The runners up in each heat were Grace Lee, of Worthing Road, Lowestoft, and Erin Hunt, of Long Road, Lowestoft, in the up to 18 months category; Harry Nimmo, of Flixton View, Oulton, and Alex Doddington, of Green Lane, Ditchingham, in the boys up to five years; and Imogen Kay, of Eastern Way, Lowestoft, and Maddison Rice, of Leiston Road, Lowestoft, in the girls up to five years category.

The winners received a 20in x 16in framed canvas texture portrait, the runners up a 10in x 8in framed portrait and third place in each category an 8in x 6in framed portrait.

There was also a specially commissioned birth plaque for the winner of each section exclusively produced by Lowestoft Porcelain and a voucher for a session with Paint and Create at Lowestoft Porcelain for the winners of each heat where they will have copies of their hands or feet printed on to plates.
