Terms & Conditions

  • All entrants must be under 2 years of age when photographed, and accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all times. The winning entrant will be asked to provide proof of age.
  • The studio portrait session is free, but you must make a donation of at least £20.00 to Julia’s House to qualify for your free session. This donation will be taken in cash or by credit/debit card (by Columbia Photography) at the time of booking. No portrait session can be considered booked without the donation having been paid, and this donation is non-refundable.
  • Only one free portrait session, studio viewing session and competition entry per household.
  • Columbia Photography will give you a free £20.00 credit towards any portrait prints or digital files purchased, limited to one £20.00 credit per household / portrait session. If you miss either your portrait session or studio portrait viewing, this credit is cancelled immediately and will not be reinstated.
  • Only one free competition entry per portrait session, and chosen competition photograph must show only one child. For twins and siblings, or any further entries into the competition, an extra £20.00 donation will be required (for Julia’s House) per entry.
  • Siblings and family members are welcome to join in the portrait session, and these family photographs will be available to purchase at your viewing.
  • You’ll have the opportunity to purchase portraits at your portrait viewing. Anyone wishing to view and/or purchase the portraits must be present at this studio viewing session. You may view your portraits online but there is a £35.00 charge to cover the time and expense of preparing your private gallery, and no photo can be chosen to be entered into the competition. There is no obligation to purchase anything.
  • If you need to rearrange your portrait session, you must advise the studio at the earliest possible opportunity. We will endeavour to offer you another time slot and/or date, but availability is limited. Your £20.00 donation to Julia’s House cannot be refunded under any circumstances.
  • If you fail to turn up for an appointment (your portrait session or studio viewing session) or arrive more than 10 minutes late, you will have to arrange a new appointment for an alternative time and/or date, at a charge of £35.00.
  • You will be asked to choose which photo you would like to enter into the competition. The photo must be chosen by the child’s parent or legal guardian during the studio viewing session. If a parent or legal guardian does not choose a photograph during the studio viewing, then no photograph will be entered into the competition. The chosen competition photo must be of only one child, and have no siblings or family members included.
  • Judging will be on December 14th 2016, the winning photograph will be chosen by a member of the Julia’s House team, and the judges decision will be final. The lucky winner will be announced on the Columbia Photography website and Facebook Page as soon as possible.
  • Last available date for portrait sessions is November 30th 2016, all photographs must be viewed and competition entries chosen by December 13th 2016.
  • Due to any unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances, this competition may be cancelled at any time.

This competition is intended to raise money and awareness for Julia’s House, to give parents the opportunity to sample our photographic services for free whilst giving a few pounds to a very worthy local charity. Parents will have an opportunity to purchase a wonderful set of memories, but there’s no hard sell or any obligation to buy. Above all else, it’s intended to be lots of fun for the babies, toddlers and their parents, please treat the competition as fun and let’s not get too competitive 🙂
