Well over 100 families accepted the Mercury's invitation to take their babies to Morrisons to be professionally photographed for the competition and all were pictured in an eight-page in-paper supplement earlier this summer.
Readers were then invited to phone in their nominations.
The competition was such a great success, with the phones red hot with votes, that a repeat event has already been pencilled in for next year.
