DeTar Healthcare System and the Victoria Advocate announce the call for entries for the annual Adorable Baby Amateur Photography Contest.

Entries will be accepted through 4 p.m. May 1.

Photos of babies born at the Women and Children’s Center at DeTar Hospital North and at DeTar Hospital Navarro between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2018 are eligible. Prizes will be awarded for the top 10 photographs as chosen by a panel of judges, according to a news release from DeTar Healthcare System.


The first, second, and third place winners will be featured in the Victoria Advocate Your Life section on Mother’s Day, May 12. Honorable mention winners will also be published.

But since this is a contest, we must have rules.

Only photos of babies born at the Women and Children’s Center at DeTar Hospital North and DeTar Hospital Navarro are eligible for entry

Winners will be chosen based on the photo’s quality, composition and originality.

  • Only one photo per child can be entered.
  • Twins or other multiples may be entered individually or as a group – but not both ways.
  • No professional photographs are permitted.
  • Photos cannot be emailed.
  • The photo will not be returned.

Prizes will be awarded to the top 10 photographs. First place will receive a check for $100; second place, $75; and third place, $50 check; and seven honorable mention winners, $25 each.

On back of the photo, please print the child’s full name, birth date, parent’s name, address, and phone number. Photos submitted may be used in future advertising for DeTar Healthcare System, with your signed consent. You may bring your entry by the Administration Office at DeTar Hospital Navarro, 506 E.
