Register your interest here and you will be given the opportunity to enter The Children’s Portrait Awards

As your local approved ‘Children’s Portrait Award’ photographer, we are excited to invite you to our studio for a professional portrait session where we will spend time creating stunning images of your children in a relaxed environment.

Book your child in for the Children’s Portrait Awards and help us raise funds for the charity The Lullaby Trust.

A £10 donation per child is required to be paid to The Lullaby Trust at the time of booking via cash or cheque made payable to The Lullaby Trust deposited in The Lullaby Trust Collection Tin in our studio. Minimum donation of £10 to The Lullaby Trust at time of sitting.

This is a national competition. Children must be under 0-16 years old at time of the photography session to enter the awards. Your children’s portrait session can include multiple children but the portrait entered into the competition must show only one child in the image.

Competition is open from the 1st January 2018 until 1st December 2018 for all entries.

All entries from the studio will be judged by an independent adjudicator and professional photographer who will choose 1st, 2nd and 3rd studio prize winners from all of Dion Gallichan Photography entries.

The 1st prize studio winner will go through to the National competition to represent Dion Gallichan Photography. One winner will be chosen by the charity The Lullaby Trust to win the National Prize of £1000 prize money!
