thechildrenoftheworld #tcotw_faceof2014 .

Congratulations goes out to @lecia_loves, chosen as the winner by our elected judge @maiekedejj .

Marieke says , "It was so much fun browsing through the nominations for #tcotw_faceof2014 .

The purpose of this competition was to show the inner beauty of a child. I think in portraying people in general, the best thing is to capture them in a natural way, making sure genuine emotions shine through .

@imaelivdanegerous did a wonderful job portraying her beautiful daughter. Her pictures are clean and have lovely clarity .

@aperfectlily also succeeded in portraying her daughter in a beautiful way. Joy and some shyness at the same time make these portraits just adorable .

@princesseva_jean made professional, high quality pictures of her daughter. They look dreamy and have lovely pastel colours which really suit this beautiful girl .

@leica_loves managed to capture the pure joy of her gorgeous daughter. Some children really detest having their picture taken, but this girl was made to be in front of the camera !

@1ies1 took some great pictures of her cute son. I love the brownish hues and the diversity of the photos in this entry .

As you can understand it was impossible to make a decision. I’ve changed my mind a couple of times over the last few days .

In the end, I made a decision on gut feeling, choosing pictures which made me smile the most and showed true emotions .

Therefore my winner is @leica_loves. Congratulations on winning #tcotw_faceof2014 !

I'd also like to thank @thechildrenoftheworld and @captainsilly for picking me to be their judge. I'm really grateful for your trust in me ️" .

A huge well done to all the worthy finalists, semi and quarter-finalists and a huge thank you to all our supporters who entered .
