More than 40 photogenic youngsters came under intense public scrutiny last month, when the annual Plunket Baby Photo Competition was judged at Warkworth New World.
There were five age categories with three prizes in each. The annual contest raised more than $700 for Wellsford Plunket, which will go towards building a retaining wall to form a safe new carpark away from State Highway 1.
Fundraising coordinator Tania Hamilton said the competition was always popular, and it would not be possible without the generous support of local sponsors, especially The Camera Shop and New World.
