Lucy in a modelling competition

Alan Hargreaves
Senior Principal Technical Support Engineer

My daughter Lucy, who turned eight on Saturday, has a photo up in a modelling competition. We are being encouraged to have folks vote for her. I would really appreciate anyone who thinks she's had a good photo taken to do so by going clicking on her photo and voting (and encouraging friends to). Voting requires an Email address (they send out a thank you email and a couple of links when you vote). Pramod, she's wearing the outfit that you haggled for me for on my last day in Bangalore.

Note I've used the image as the link as while I have not received my copies, I have purchased copyrights to the photo shoot. If you can't see the image, you can click here. There appears to be a problem with accessibility of the site from outside Australia, I'm following this up with the website.

The terms and conditions of the competition state that if AKC believes that anyone voting is bypassing the normal system of vote casting by continously changing their IP address, AKC reserves the right to disqualify that contestant. Please be sure to ask your friends and support crew not to do this as, ultimately, it will disadvantage your chances.

The terms and conditions of the competition are available here. The important ones relating to voting are:

    It permits only one vote from an individual computer within a 24 hour period for any contestant entered in the "STRIKE-A-POSE" Photogenic Quest.
    It does not permit multiple voting due to the restrictions enabled through our software which identifies the IP address of the person (computer) voting.
    Aussie-Kids.Com is not responsible for any software malfunction that may occur during voting.
    Aussie-Kids.Com is not responsible if voting is not possible due to the networking of some computers in government bodies/departments or business houses and will not enter into any discussions or explanations as to this fact before, during or after the voting period.
