WE can hardly believe it’s that time of year again, but the call has gone out from Peterhead Scottish Week organisers for nominations for the 2013 Buchan Queen!

Judges - including STV’s Sean Batty and Norman MacLeod - will select this year’s Buchan Queen and Princesses at a special evening at the Waterside Hotel on Saturday, May 25.

This year’s event is being sponsored by Britannia Hotels and top North-east photographer Philip Stewart.

Girls must be aged 18 or over on the day of the crowning to enter the competition, and this is a great chance to get involved in the local community and be crowned Buchan Queen 2013.

A special nomination form will begin running in next week’s Buchanie, but to whet your appetite all Buchan Queen hopefuls will receive a complimentary photo session by award-winning photographer Philip Stewart.

The winning girls will not only have the accolade of being crowned Buchan Queen and Princess 2012, but will also win cash prizes of £250 for the Queen and £150 for each Princess.

The Queen will also win a champagne break at any Britannia hotel!

So get your thinking caps on and start making a list of who you want to nominate for this golden opportunity during the summer of 2013.
