HERE they are – your Bonny Baby category winners.

We had over 400 entries in this year’s competition and judges have had the difficult task in choosing 10 from each age group category.

And then it was over to our readers and what a response we received.

More than 1,200 votes were cast by phone, text and the coupon in your Hartlepool MailAnd you chose the top treasures to be Lucy Lorimer in the 0-18 months age group, Matthew Pischos, in the 18 months-3 years category and Alyssia Cotson took the honours in the 3-5 years group.

Each category winner picks up a canvas print of their baby worth £125.

But now it’s time for you to vote for the bonniest of them all.

The overall winner will receive a £100 Middleton Grange Shopping Centre voucher, 2nd place a £50 voucher and a £30 voucher for third place.

Who will be the Mail 2011 Bonny Baby champion?
