Would you like your baby to be the new face of the Emma Bunton Babywear range, available exclusively at Argos? If so, apply through Facebook now!
Leading retailer Argos and mum of two, Spice Girl and celebrity designer Emma Bunton have today launched a nationwide competition offering parents the chance for their baby to be the new face of the Emma Bunton Babywear range.
The winning tot will get the opportunity to star in an Argos photoshoot with the pictures seen by millions of people in the famous Argos catalogue and on argos.co.uk, the UK's largest high street retail website. The prize also includes a year's modelling contract with award-winning London agency - Alphabet Kidz, plus £100 clothing from the Emma Bunton Baby range.
Entrants need to be under 18 months old when the competition closes on 27 July. A shortlist will then be selected, with the final winner chosen by a panel of judges comprising of leader blogger Mummy...Mummy...MUM!!, Emma Vanstone, Lisa Balcombe, Director - Alphabet Kidz agency, Carly Steckiewicz from the Argos clothing team and the range's own designer, Emma Bunton.
Emma Bunton said: "I've loved every part of creating my clothing range from Argos and now I get the chance to help choose one of the models too! As a child model for Argos myself I can firmly say this is a fun, unique and exciting opportunity. I can't wait to see all the cute babies."
Blogger Mummy...Mummy...MUM!! said: "As a mum of three myself, I'm really excited about being involved in the competition to select the new face of the babywear range. My kids have worn Emma's range and they love it, plus it's really great quality yet affordable."
Carly Steckiewicz from the Argos clothing team added: "It has been great fun working with Emma again on her latest kids wear collection for Argos. The range is great value and fashionable and we're very excited that we can offer such an opportunity to a child in the UK. I am really looking forward to seeing all the entries."
To enter the competition, parents need to visit the Argos Facebook page at www.facebook.com/argos where they can follow a series of simple steps to complete their application and upload a photo of their child. All entrants will automatically receive a voucher code entitling them to 25% off the Emma Bunton clothing range when they spend £25 (conditions apply).
