Baby Neil from Lake Country won the B.C. baby photo contest for August 2022 (The Baby Contest)

Parents in B.C., Alberta, and Ontario are eagerly sending in baby photos for prizes in The Baby Contest.

B.C.’s lucky winner of the largest baby photo contest is Lake Country baby Neil and his mother could not be more proud.

Petkai (Prisha) Chavan says she is on cloud nine that her 14-month-old son won the top prize last month.

“As soon as August 1 started the campaign was on and we had to go and nominate him.”

As the August finalist, Neil wins a $100 cash prize and a framed photo by Pictorem.

Chavan said the family wasn’t looking to enter any contests, but was searching for a photographer when they came across the competition.

The submitted photo was taken by Image Studios in Vernon.

Neil is now automatically entered into the grand prize contest where the finalists from each month will compete for a $1,000 cash prize and an RESP.
