The winners of our hugely popular Bonny Baby competition have been announced – with these adorable tots and toddlers being officially crowned the cutest in the town.

Back in July, photographs were taken at Picture Studios in Lowestoft where more than 75 children posed for the camera to enter.

In total 79 photogenic youngsters from across Lowestoft and Southwold headed to portrait specialists Picture Studios in Lowestoft town centre for a photographic sitting.

And after showcasing all the entries over a special five-page Bonny Babies supplement, readers' votes came flooding in – meaning a lot of hard work for us here at The Journal office!
