The winning image - that won a Family photo-shoot (for up to 6 people), 10 copyright-free high-resolution images on disc in colour and black-and-white and a framed 18×12 inch picture (worth over £250!) - was uploaded by Leann Hopkin.
Judge Lyndsay from Picture Proud said: "This competition for me was about finding something that made me smile - it was called 'Summer Smiles' after all.
"It wasn't about a 'technically' correct photograph or the cutest baby - there were so many cute babies and children I really couldn't pick a winner on cuteness alone.
"I decided on the winner as it made me smile and brought back many memories - it epitomises what a typical British summer should be about - fish and chips on the beach. I can even smell and taste them right now, sat here in Elsecar looking out at the rain. Fab."
However, Lyndsay was so impressed with the entries that she chose a further five winners.
SECOND PLACE

Congratulations to the owner of this image who has won a Family Photo-Shoot (up to 6 people), with five copyright-free images and a 12x8" framed picture
Lyndsay said: "This just looked like fun. Again another typical fun thing to do - bury yourself in the sand. I remember doing this when I was a kid but buried right up to my neck - I'd just had all my hair cut off and someone walked past and said "look at that boy buried in the sand" - I was not impressed and needless to say, grew my hair long again."
THIRD PLACE

Congratulations to the owner of this image who has won a Family Photo-Shoot (up to 6 people) and a 12x8" framed picture.
Lyndsay said she found it so hard to pick a winner that she just had to select these ones as they were all strong.
RUNNERS UP
And finally, three runners up have each won a family photo shoot with a 7x5" image. Those images are the ones below. Well done everyone!

Sorry you think that, wasn't intended that way (and they're not children under the Brollies!). There were a number of other pictures that were very so very close - including adults and not on beaches! I just went with what made me smile :)

Thank you so much for picking our photo of our little ones playing in the waves on holiday this year as one of your runners up! That trip to the beach was one of our holiday highlights and I'm so pleased that it made you smile too :)
