Small Steps Cover Star Competition

Small Steps Cover Star Competition - Congratulations to our latest winner and how to take part in next month’s competition. 

Congratulations to Oliver Clarke, aged 10 months from Manchester, for this fantastic winning photo! Oliver is Cover Star winner for the month of August. It is lovely to see so many wonderful pictures each month and this cute photo really captured the eye of our independent judge.

Could your little one be our next “Back to School/Nursery Special Cover Star? 

Maybe you’re feeling sad that summer is over but at the same time excited about your little ones going ‘Back to School’; maybe it’s their very first time going to school/nursery.  It’s a very special moment in a parent’s life; buying their first uniform, preparing their lunch in a new lunch box and waving them goodbye (for over an hour). With this in mind we’ve decided our next Cover Star Competition is a ‘Back to School’ special. 

Send us your best ‘Back to School’ photo of your little one dressed up and ready to go and they could be our next Cover Star!

As well as being the face of our website home page and star of our social media sites, your little one will also be the star of one of our fantastic Small Steps Newsletters which goes out on email to all members of Small Steps. We will also provide you with a high res digital image featured as our Cover Star so you can print it off and frame it for everyone to see or include in your keepsake or memory box.

Make sure you’ve registered for our Newsletter to hopefully see your little star featured and to keep up to date with all the latest baby & toddler competitions, offers, recipes and more! 

To enter, all you need to do is email us your photo of your little one to Please make sure your picture is of a child aged 0-5. It doesn't have to be a professional photo but please make sure it’s in focus so that everyone can see how cute your little one is. Please make sure you include your name, your child's name and age plus where you are from when sending in your picture.

All pictures must be received by noon on Wednesday 16th September, and will all be uploaded to our Facebook album on Thursday 17th September. PS. Keep an eye on our website Newsfeed too, as before we upload the pictures to Facebook, we sometimes randomly pick some cute photos to share on our website as well.

Once the photos are uploaded onto Facebook, all you have to do then is first let your friends & family know that you've entered and ask them to ‘Like’ our page. Then, to vote for your entry, all they have to do is ‘Like’ your photo by noon on Tuesday 22nd August. You can even use the share button on Facebook to help your friends find your entry! Or why not “Tag” your friends and family into your photo as well?

The ten “most liked” pictures along with ten pictures picked by the Small Steps Team will go through to the second round on Tuesday 22nd September on our website gallery, where an independent judge will select the winner.

The winner will be announced via our website on Thursday 24th September.

Good luck from the Small Steps Team.
