Just like to say, that the shots posted already are like a day brightener. Happy smiling children. Great choice of subject.

Especially after 2 months of cold winter shots.

I'll be entering.

Just managed to get to this page - been a busy week!! - as I am a teacher I should be able to find something by Sunday - but taking the camera to school tomorrow to give me a different dimension - doesn't really help though as children DON'T pose. I'll see what I get.
Everything is possible - just not today.

Having been called a paedophile for merely having a child with me whilst taking photos, I can see where some concern comes from.

That said....I'll see what I can come up with
Getting there! Thanks to you guys

They're all good, but there's one absolute belter! Takes me back to my own childhood

I think if I enter I'll only be making up the numbers

Agreed.
If you can't say something nice about Pentax, you won't say anything at all.

Apparently.

You know if you photograph school children in school and use the images externally you face the risk of being investigated and possibly struck off for gross misconduct. Some of the parents will have signed a consent form to say they are happy for their child to be photographed and the image to be used for school magazines/publications, school website or school display boards. The consent form doesn't give you the power to photograph the children and use the image here - BE VERY CAREFUL[/quote


Always get written permission - never have a problem with parents

Trying to enter but I can't break through some technical barrier that is preventing my upload.

Darlene, your competition is 'Children at work or play.' Yet in your introduction to the entries you say no pictures of children being exploited by work allowed.
Which is it - children at work or no children at work? Or do you mean by work, pretend work which is really play?

David, I think this is Darlene's definition of work - " by "work" I mean children doing tasks such as reading, colouring, cooking...ect. We all know what play is."

I think it excludes making trainers.
You can see some of my photos here if you are so inclined
